Jaguar - XF Price: from £34,995
Last Updated On: 18/08/2020
Already the class benchmark for driving dynamics and driver engagement, the latest Jaguar XF offers an even greater breadth of dynamic ability.
For the first time, Jaguar's business saloon offers all-wheel drive (AWD) together with a four-cylinder diesel engine - the clean, refined, 180PS 2.0-litre Ingenium unit. This combination will offer customers exceptional fuel efficiency together with enhanced all-weather traction and performance, and will be available in markets worldwide, including North America.
Jaguar's torque on-demand AWD system features Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) - a next-generation control technology developed entirely in-house. Launched in the F-TYPE AWD, IDD delivers rear-wheel drive character and agility but can transfer precisely the right amount of torque to the front axle when required, maximising the performance and dynamics benefits of the additional traction. The result is superb composure in even the most adverse weather conditions.
Configurable Dynamics improves the driving experience still further by allowing the driver to individually tune settings for the suspension, steering, throttle and transmission through the vehicle's touchscreen. Originally offered only on V6 models, Configurable Dynamics will now be available on all 180PS four-cylinder diesel models with automatic transmissions.
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 a stopwatch, g-meter, lap timer and graphs of brake and accelerator pedal activation, enhancing the all-new XF's performance-orientated character.
For the first time, the Adaptive Dynamics continuously variable damping system will be available on manual transmission models. The improved body control that Adaptive Dynamics provides, coupled with the smooth, precise gear change engineered for the six-speed gearbox, will offer keen drivers even greater involvement.
As well as benchmark vehicle dynamics, the all-new XF boasts exceptional usability and practicality, thanks to class-leading rear seat space and a 540-litre luggage compartment - the largest in the segment. The all-new XF is one of the safest cars in its segment too, achieving the maximum five star rating from Euro NCAP. And, with C02 emissions from just 104g/km, class-leading residual values, class leading three-year unlimited mileage warranty and the lowest overall service costs in its class, the all-new XF also delivers remarkably low running costs.
The new XF comes in five model grades: Prestige, Portfolio, R-Sport, Chequered Flage and S and is available with a choice of 2 litre petrol and 2 or 3 litre diesel engines, with the option of all-wheel drive on some model configurations. The latest Jaguar XF 163PS and 180PS diesel rear-wheel-drive variants are now compliant with RDE2; a new emissions regulation not mandatory until January 2021.
