The excitement surrounding the Jaguar XE is palpable and rightly so - the baby Jag really knows how to captivate! Designed by Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, the XE is not only winning hearts, but also awards. The latest addition in its kitty being named the 'Most Beautiful Car of 2014' at the 30th edition of Festival Automobile International in Paris. The XE beat the likes of the Mazda MX-5, Mercedes C-Class Estate and Fiat 500X to win the honour.

Ian Callum collected the award in front of a crowd of 600 VIPs and over 60 media attendees.

Decided by a public vote, the award saw more than 100,000 votes being cast across 59 countries; XE bagged the top honours with 28 per cent of the votes in its favour. This is the XE's second French award since the Paris Motor Show in October 2014, where it was named the 'Best Production Car' by Auto Plus magazine, and the listeners of French radio station, RTL. Seems like the French have taken a liking to something British afterall!

Just so you know, this beautiful sedan's deliveries will begin in May, 2015.
