"We are keeping the 2016 Jaguar XE under wraps a little longer," Jaguar said today on Twitter. Except not really, because they just gave us one of the better looks we've seen at their upcoming 3-series fighting small sport sedan.

And by under wraps, they clearly mean a clever wrap that shows off the XE's aluminum architecture underneath. We barely know the XE, and we've already seen it naked! Scandalous.

Still no exact specs on the XE yet, but expect it to come in rear- and all-wheel drive and be powered by members of a new family of 2.0-liter gasoline and diesel four-cylinder engines, and possibly some beefier powerplants as well.
