Our six Jaguar businesses are enjoying a period of unprecedented brand development with the recently launched and hugely successful XE Saloon and the promise of our first SUV Crossover, F-PACE, in the New Year. But soon to arrive in the showrooms will be the all-new 2016 model year XF. At the foundation of the new XF’s impeccable ride, handling, and dynamics is Jaguar’s Aluminium Intensive Architecture. It facilitates a near perfect 50:50 balance, supporting an agile and precise drive. All-new XF’s Electric Power Assisted Steering, (EPAS), offers outstanding feedback and control. By monitoring vehicle speed and driver inputs, EPAS finely calibrates the amount of power assistance for every bend, every manoeuvre. Lightweight and durable, it also helps all-new XF to be one of the lightest cars in its class. This weight saving improves fuel efficiency, reducing CO2 emissions to as low as 104g/km.
The aluminium alloy itself is comprised of a high level of recycled aluminium, which uses 95 percent less energy than primary aluminium to produce, minimising XF’s environmental impact even further, offering fuel economy of up to 71mpg. Furthermore, with engines capable of up to 155mph and 0-60mph acceleration as quick as 5.1 seconds – there is now an XF for every driver.
In an emergency braking situation, XF is ready. Utilising a forward facing camera, should a potential collision be detected XF gives an audible forward collision warning, allowing you time to take action. Visual warnings in the Head-Up Display (if fitted) and instrument cluster follow. If a collision is
still anticipated and the driver takes no action, the system then applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact. Control Touch Pro advances XF’s technology to the next level through a High Definition 12.3 inch TFT instrument cluster, providing user-friendly interfaces with a range of innovative features. These include an all-new predictive navigation system that ‘learns’ your regular journeys and displays your ETA without the need to enter a destination. Remembering that XF has been with us nearly 8 years, this car reflects how far Jaguar have come, making this an exciting time for all of our previous Guests, our future Guests and all of our Associates in our Jaguar businesses.
