Design chief Callum says he'd like a Jaguar city car
The Coventry marque makes vehicles of various sizes, and if its design chief has his way, it could branch southwards into the city car segment. Speaking with Britain's What Car? magazine, Ian Callum expressed his viewpoint that a properly high-end small hatchback, coupe or sedan could anchor the shallow end of the company's lineup, though he did qualify that his was a "personal view."
In that respect, any such car would be following in the footsteps of former sister-company and longtime rival Aston Martin – whose DB7, Vanquish and Vantage were also designed by Callum – which recently teamed up with Toyota to offer the Cygnet city car. As long as Callum doesn't envision a Tata Nano with a Leaping Cat on the hood, we'll wait and see how this turns out.
