No Joke: Jaguar to call next small car XS?

Jaguar is scheduled to release more details about its upcoming small car, which won't look like the Bertone B99 Concept above, at the 2011 AutoRAI in Amsterdam. The details will include the car's name, which is rumored to be XS.
The name fits into Jag's current naming convention, but it seems more than a little cutesy to call your small car "XS." Whether Jag meant the coincidence or not, word is they're sticking with the moniker.
Jaguar is aiming the XS at the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3-Series and is working hard to make sure the new car isn't as bad as its ill-conceived X-Type. There are rumors circulating about an XS-based roadster and coupe as well, but we wouldn't hold our breath on that front, as Jaguar hasn't yet released the sedan's shape.
