9. The retro look has been avoided, but this rear quarter panel is, alas, rather banal, with a backlight resembling the last pre-Mulally Ford Taurus.
10. The front overhang is radically shorter than normal Jaguar practice. But the BMW 3-series shows that this is not just desirable but possible.
11. And the rear overhang is considerably shorter than on 1968-2009 Jaguar XJ sedans.
REAR 3/4 VIEW
12. Side-marker lamp is integrated below the undercut crease.
13. Antagonistic door openings allow grouping of the door handles, as on the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Again, set just below the indented crease line.
14. Rear door cut is unusually far back, but the rear hinging allows easy entry despite a quite-short back door. The line emphasizes the rounded transverse section.
15. There's nothing left of the very round Jaguar rear quarter, which is just as well since it was taken up by Chrysler's LH models long ago.
16. Wraparound taillights are simple, elegant, and effective in increasing apparent width. They would also be economical to produce, important for an entry-level model.
17. This shieldlike panel isn't easy to justify, although its top chrome strip is a definite Jaguar style mark.
