Did you hear the one about the fella who pulled into a McDonald's drive-through in his new Jaguar XE and the attendant asked if he'd like to upsize?

Neither have we, but chances appear strong that Jaguar is planning precisely that with its coming new XF sedan: an 'embiggened' version of the XE.

Revealed earlier last month and showcased again in Paris this week, the new midsized XE blends much of the current XF's still-fresh styling with a powerful new design language for the brand.

While the seven year-old XF remains one of the more stylish offerings on the market, it is clear from these latest spy photos that its influence on the new XE will soon come back around.

The XF will again wear a swept-back profile caught between sedan and 'four-door coupe' territory, while the face and tail - although obscured on this spied prototype - will take cues from the XE.

As with the company's new midsizer, we can expect the larger XF to ride on Jaguar Land Rover’s new iQ[AI] aluminium platform.

That new platform's scaleable design is also expected to result in the XF growing in most directions, further setting it apart from the medium XE.

The company’s new four-cylinder Ingenium engine range will likely provide motivation in the majority of models, although the company’s bigger performance engines should also feature.

Jaguar has already confirmed that its big supercharged V6 engine will feature in the XE, which suggests a similar plan for the XF, including the larger V8 unit, is also in the works.

A version of the XE’s front suspension package should also feature, giving the new XF a lightweight aluminium double-wishbone setup.

These spy photos show the regular sedan in testing, but we will likely see new XF Sportbrake wagon and high-performance SVR models appear down the road.

Away from the XE and XF, we can also expect to see the company’s big new SUV appear in the new future, potentially wearing a ‘Q-Type’ badge.
