The problem with this car is, that the shape is truly dull, as is the whole interior, and if the facelift will be similar to the XE, non of that will change much; Outside, new lights or griklles...

The question is really, would the Chinese love a tasteful design? After all, the 7 series BMW is the atrocity it has become because the Chinese like those overdone designs, apparently; And any luxury...

As much as it looks still good, it would be too little to late I'm afraid; Plus, it's a nearly 10 year old concept car

Probably very predictable; some new LEDs here and there, and the updated XE interior also put in the F-pace (as they share the interior);

TO be fair, I just don't see a lot Jaguar could do to turn a next XJ into a sales success, given it's a brand where wrong decisions in the last 10/15 years haven't exactly moved it up the image...

Whilst certainly the general trend towards SUVs is a reason to blame, the XE and especially the XF are certainly below class average products as a whole; The design language IMO worked great on the...

Yes, that is indeed a major point; No one cared about track times with a Testarossa or Maranello, yet the lines made them instant classics, let alone a Daytona or Dino; Yes, those cars were fast, but...
