Coming in with both petrol and diesel engine options, Jaguar XF will be powered by as pair of 2.0 liter diesel engines offering 163 PS and 180 PS, a 3.0 liter V6 diesel offering 300 PS and a supercharged 3.0 liter V6 petrol engine offering 380 PS.
Positioned between the XE and XJ, the New Jaguar XF is 190 kgs lighter than its predecessor due to aluminium intensive construction and new engines from the lightweight Ingenium family. Interiors are more spacious despite the fact that the front overhang is 66mm shorter while overall length and height is reduced by 7mm and 3mm respectively. The wheelbase is longer by 51mm which is what adds to interior space.
On board features will include Jaguar Configurable Dynamics which will be offered as options on all V6 models due to which drivers will be able to select from four setting of dampers, steering, engine and 8 speed automatic transmission. The Jaguar XF will receive In-Control Touch Pro, the most advanced infotainment system sporting quad core processor running on ultra fast Ethernet connection with greater response and speed.
New Jaguar XF will compete with the likes of Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes E-Class. Expect the car to be launched in India next year.
