Lighter, cleaner and roomier – Jaguar reveals new XF
The all-new Jaguar XF is likely to present a stronger challenge in the executive chauffeur market as Jaguar has addressed the outgoing model’s biggest weakness – rear seat space.
The new XF, unveiled in London last week, is 7mm shorter and 3mm lower than the car it replaces, but its 2,960mm wheelbase is 51mm longer, enabling class-leading rear seat space with more legroom, kneeroom and headroom.
The new car is also lighter and more fuel-efficient. Featuring 75% aluminium, the new XF is up to 190kg lighter than the outgoing model and an increase in torsional stiffness of up to 28%.
Jaguar claims the lowest CO2 emissions of any non-hybrid model in the segment - 104g/km, resulting in combined economy of more than 70mpg from the new 2.0-litre 163PS Ingenium diesel engine.
The interior includes a new 10.2in touchscreen infotainment system and a reconfigurable 12.3in TFT instrument cluster. The all-new XF will go on sale from Autumn 2015 and will be built at Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich plant.
