Just because a vehicle is labeled a luxury model does not make it an elegant performance vehicle, nor does it make it one that is efficient. Where can you find such a car that has the long and sleek shape and classy interior that can only be described as elegant while offering the fuel mileage and aerodynamics that make it efficient? Only one vehicle comes to mind when this is the description; the new Jaguar XF. This is the car that made the entrance in London by performing a high wire crossing at the Canary Wharf district, and has been remade by Jaguar for the new model year.
Using an aluminum intensive platform that has worked well for the XE, the XF is actually 400 pounds lighter while offering 28 percent more rigidity to the build. This stiffer build make use of a new double wishbone front and integral link rear suspension to be a vehicle that is excellent for the drive. Another improvement over the outgoing model is the electric power assisted steering system which is more responsive and a perfect match for the rest of the control elements.
When you look at the new XF you can’t help but fall in love as this car is sexy, sophisticated and mostly elegant from tip to tail. There won’t be anyone you pass by that won’t stop and take a look at this gorgeous vehicle, even those who own vehicles that comes from more exclusive names. While it is a source of pride for Jaguar that this car looks so amazing, the real secret to this new vehicle is improved aerodynamics over the outgoing XE model.
The size of the car seems to be virtually the same as before, but somehow Jaguar found an additional two inches of wheelbase to give the passengers in the rear seat more space. This added space isn’t just for the legs; it also translates to more headroom, which many in the back seat can often complain about.
To give you a look on the inside that matches the elegance of the exterior the first thing you will notice is a 12.3-inch TFT instrument screen to let you configure your instruments the way you want. You also have a similar sized InControl Touch Pro infotainment system which is now the most advanced ever offered by Jaguar. Of course the sound of your music will be enjoyed on a fantastic sound system which gives you 17 speakers and 825 watts while being made by Meridian.
As for the power under the hood the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that brings you 340 horsepower that can be tuned up to 380 is being offered. This engine will be attached to the eight-speed automatic transmission in RWD or AWD form. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel are expected to still be part of the plan, if you want the most power you will opt for the larger gasoline engine to give you the drive that matches perfectly with the look and feel of this car.
Isn’t it time you stepped up to a car that was worthy of your station in life? It’s time for the Jaguar XF to be in your driveway, adding to the curb appeal of your home in between exciting drives on the open roads in your area.
