|The recognizable Jaguar XF has been refreshed for the year as a continuity of its reputation of being the class benchmark for driving dynamics and uncompromising sentiments.|
For the first time, Jaguar’s business sedan offers all-wheel drive (AWD) together with a four-cylinder diesel engine that boasts a 180PS 2.0-liter Ingenium unit. At the same time, the developed in-house Jaguar’s torque on-demand AWD system and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) are part of the powertrain package. First used on the F-TYPE AWD, IDD is integrated into the transfer case and can apply predictive, feed-forward control strategies as well as reactive, feedback control. IDD is also networked to the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system, the torque vectoring system and Jaguar Drive Control. Also available is the Configurable Dynamics, which comes standard for the XF diesel version with automatic transmission.
For vehicles equipped with the state-of-the-art InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, Configurable Dynamics also benefits from Dynamic-i. Displayed on the 10.2-inch touchscreen, this feature provides the driver with plenty of functional data such as; a stopwatch, g-meter, lap timer, braking graphs and acceleration information.
Another first on the Jaguar XF is the Adaptive Dynamics continuously variable damping system; available for the manual transmission version.
For AWD-equipped XFs, Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) technology can replace Rain, Ice, Snow mode in the Jaguar Drive Control and optimizes the mapping of the throttle, automatic transmission and DSC system to suit the type of surface.
Developed from Jaguar Land Rover’s world-leading, award-winning Terrain Response technology, AdSR ensures that the vehicle is set up to fully exploit the available traction, improving driver confidence in even the most challenging conditions, such as ice-covered roads.
Moving away from vehicle driving dynamics, the updated Jaguar XF now has rear seat spare and a 540-liter boot space; the largest in its segment.
There are five trim levels for the Jaguar XF: XF Pure, XF Prestige, XF Portfolio, XF R-Sport and XF S. The base version is a 163PS 2.0-liter diesel, paired to either manual or automatic transmission. Further up the ladder, the XF comes in the 180PS 2.0-liter diesel and 240PS 2.0-liter petrol versions. The Jaguar XF’s range toppers include the 300PS 3.0-liter diesel with automatic transmission, 340PS 3.0-liter petrol with auto. transmission and the powerful 380PS 3.0-liter petrol, paired to auto. transmission and an All-wheel Drive system.
