Jaguar is now owned by Tata who have a manufacturing tie up with Fiat in India. Fiat's CEO Sergio Marchionne is a master at getting advantageous deals for Fiat Group companies with other car manufacturers and this will possibly prove to be another master stroke. Tata need revenue for Jaguar and Alfa need a rear wheel drive platform to seriously compete in the BMW/Merc/Jaguar bracket. The Jag platform will allow the 169 to become a rear wheel drive model and will also allow Alfa the option to make the successor to the 159 a rear driver as well to take on the 3 series.
