Render – Future Jaguar cars come back into focus
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

The second model is the much talked about Jaguar crossover for a family oriented buyer. Jaguar has finished its primary research and the results are very positive. The crossover is on the drawing board with talks of using the an all-wheel-drive platform of Jaguar’s compact sedan to compete against the Mercedes ML Class, BMW X3 and Audi Q5.
Next in line is the BMW 3 Series rival from Jaguar codenamed X760. Internally called as the ‘compact car’, the baby Jag is 4.3m long with a FWD architecture based on Jaguar’s premium lightweight architecture (PLA) aluminum chassis.
