All-New Jaguar XF Makes Global Debut at New York Motor Show
The Jaguar XF made its first appearance on the world stage
last week, when it took to the stage of the world famous New York International
The new XF is expected to bring an unrivalled level of design, luxury, technology, efficiency and dynamic capability to the business car segment. The coupe-like design is a combination of elegant surfaces, outstanding proportions and perfect lines that define every Jaguar model, but feature a longer wheelbase, more interior space and increased aerodynamic efficiency.
Ian Callum, Director of Design for Jaguar, said: “I believe that the all-new XF is the best looking car in its class. Elegant, handsome and with proportions that imbue a great sense of integrity – the all new XF is true to the great tradition of sporting Jaguar saloons while being completely of its time."
The interior is a unique blend of contemporary luxury materials and finishes, traditional Jaguar craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology. The impressive list of features includes a reconfigurable 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, laser head-up display and the InControl Touch Pro premium infotainment system, allowing you to search for local points of interest, browse the internet, listen to music or entertain the passengers with an on-board movie – creating the most connected Jaguar model ever made.
Thanks to the all new dimensions of the XF, there is more space than ever to enjoy all of the exciting interior features. At 4,954mm long, with a 2,960mm wheel base, the all-new XF is 51mm longer than the previous edition, allowing for improved interior space and extra leg, knee and head room. The XF is also 80kg lighter than the old model, and with a 50:50 weight distribution delivering the ideal balance between ride and handling.
Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director of the Jaguar XF said: “From an engineering perspective, our targets with the all-new XF were bound by one holistic goal – it had to do everything better and it does. It offers even better dynamics, even greater refinement for the comfort of its occupants, it delivers an all-new infotainment system, and it utilises every last mm of packaging to maximise interior space, while exploiting all the weight saving optimisation offered by our new aluminium architecture. As a driver you will notice these benefits from the moment you sit behind the wheel."
The all-new XF is offered in a range of powertrain options: 163HP or 180HP 2.0-litre diesel with manual or automatic transmission; 240HP 2.0-litre petrol automatic with rear-wheel drive; 300HP 3.0-litre diesel with rear-wheel drive and automatic transmission, and a 340HP or 380HP 3.0-litre petrol automatic with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The XF will produce the lowest levels of CO2 emissions of any non-hybrid model in the business car segment, starting from just 104g/km.
The XF also features several important safety features to help keep the eyes of the driver firmly on the road. A smaller, lighter, high contrast colour laser head-up display is easier to read in strong sunlight whilst a number of stereo cameras allow for autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane keep assist systems to support the driver at the wheel.
Adaptive cruise control with Queue assist uses the stereo camera technology to take the stress out of motorway driving by tracking the vehicle in front and following at a safe distance. Traffic sign recognition system allows the XF to apply an intelligent speed limiter, that once set, monitors speed limit signs, and can regulate the vehicle speed by either smoothly accelerating the car up to a higher limit, or slowing it down to a lower limit.
Further details on the price and performance levels of the all-new Jaguar XF are expected to be released when the official release date is announced.
