Class-leading 104g/km for new Jaguar XF
Shorter and lower than the car it replaces, but with a longer wheelbase, the new XF is claimed to feature segment-leading rear seat space. Its structure is 75% aluminium, shedding 190kg weight compared to its predecessor and 80kg over its nearest competitor, yet also adding 28% more rigidity over the outgoing car.
Engines include 161bhp and 188bhp versions of the new 2.0-litre Ingenium four-cylinder diesels, the former offered with the XF’s first six-speed manual gearbox as well as the eight-speed automatic. The former is the segment’s most fuel-efficient non-hybrid, offering 70mpg fuel economy and emitting 104g/km CO2. Six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with up to 376bhp complete the range.
Also new to the XF are features including Jaguar’s latest InControl internet-connected infotainment system, a customisable 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster and all-LED headlights. Drivers can select multiple modes for steering, dampers and drivetrain, as well as All-Surface Progress Control which increases grip on snow and ice, and the suspension setup is derived from the XE.
