The 2016 Jaguar XE will make its official debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show.

The upcoming sedan is entering the final stage of development as the British automaker has returned from testing the upcoming XE at the Nürburgring, as seen in the latest spy photos from AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers. After its debut in Paris this October the 2016 Jaguar XE will go on sale in the middle of next year. It will be slotted beneath the XF in the automaker’s lineup. The new sedan will be the first car in its segment to use an aluminum monocoque structure that’s “set to be the most advanced, efficient and refined sports sedan in its class,” according to Jaguar.

As the first product spawned from the firm’s new architecture, the XE will be powered by 2.0-liter variants of Jaguar Land Rover’s new family of four-cylinder engines. It will also be available with the same supercharged V6 found in the F-Type, though it will likely have only 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque on tap rather than 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque.
