With the global preview of the new 2010 Jaguar XJ sedan in about a month, details are beginning to leak forth--as well as some illustrations put together by Britain's CAR magazine.

The new luxury sedan has been teased in photos like the one above, since late last year. We've published dozens of Jaguar XJ spy photos--and from those and the released teasers, it's clear the new XJ will be growing into a new body inspired by the top-rated Jaguar XF sedan.

According to CAR, the new car will adopt XF cues as well as some concept-car details that haven't surfaced yet on a production Jaguar. A panoramic sunroof will be fitted, and CAR reports a unique D-pillar treatment will give the XJ's roofline a floating, coupe-like appearance.

The XJ will once again be built in aluminum bonded sections, giving it the lightest body in the class. With engines carrying over from the 2010 Land Rover lineup, the U.S. sedan will sport a 5.0-liter V-8 with about 350 horsepower and a supercharged version will crank out 500 hp or more. Rear-drive will be the only drivetrain setup, but a hybrid powertrain is in the works, according to the magazine.

Inside, the new XJ will sport an XF-like interior with improvements like larger digital displays, iPhone integration and night vision.

Stick around--there's more on the XJ coming July 9, as Jaguar releases more photos and details.
