Rumours of an entry-level, BMW 3 Series-fighting Jaguar sedan have been floating around for quite some time, but thanks to our intrepid spy photographers, we now have visible proof that such a model is, in fact, in the works. Despite this tester's sneaky XF fittings, it's clear that what lies beneath is an entirely different beast.
