2016 Jaguar XF Design
The all-new XF demonstrates the Jaguar principles of design purity. Strong lines radiate dynamic character and enhance its capabilities, be it improving aerodynamics, visibility, stability or safety.
XF is available with adaptive LED headlights featuring Jaguar’s signature ‘J’ blade Daytime Running Lights to give XF a striking on-road presence. The quality of LED light is close to daylight that helps in distinguishing objects more easily and reducing fatigue at night.
At the rear, XF’s tail lights feature a distinctive, Jaguar F-TYPE inspired, double roundel and intersecting horizontal detail. The LED brake lights are not only brighter than halogen bulbs but also use less energy, contributing to XF’s overall drive for greater efficiency. LEDs also illuminate faster, so following drivers can react more quickly to XF’s braking.
The all-new Jaguar XF’s sweeping exterior design is naturally aerodynamic. Its advanced form enhances handling, dynamics and refinement. Even the boot lid’s height and pitch, as well as its overall curvature and subtle spoiler, are designed to reduce drag and increase downforce.
2016 Jaguar XF Interior
The all-new Jaguar XF’s interior offers outstanding comfort and a sense of wellbeing. The number of switches and buttons is kept to a minimum to keep the look clean and tidy, as well as making them easy to use. Materials used are of the highest quality. Leather and finishes are selected with the greatest care to ensure that, inside XF, everything is luxurious to the touch.
The rear of Jaguar XF’s cabin is spacious and luxurious. Compared with the previous generation XF, rear ‘knee-room’ has increased by 24 mm, making it among the best in class. Rear ‘leg-room’ has increased by 15 mm, adding to greater comfort and wellbeing for passengers. Building on the drama of its predecessor’s interior, mood lighting also enhances the feeling one gets once inside the car. Mood Lighting is configurable and there is a choice of ten colours to choose from.

The all-new Jaguar XF is offered with the new Ingenium 2.0 l 4-cylinder Turbocharged Diesel engine that delivers a power output of 132 kW.

With advanced technology and all-aluminium construction, the Ingenium diesel engine delivers impressive fuel economy and reduces CO2 emissions. Up to 20 kg lighter than equivalent previous generation engines, the Ingenium diesel engine is intrinsically more efficient.
The all-new Jaguar XF’s 4-cylinder petrol engine offers 177 kW of power and responsiveness throughout the rev range, while improving efficiency. The 2.0 l 4-cylinder Turbocharged Petrol engine achieves ‘6-cylinder’ levels of performance and refinement from a more compact and economical structure.
Jaguar has been at the forefront of aluminium car construction for more than a decade. Its latest innovation – Lightweight Aluminium Architecture embodies the new Jaguar XF, which makes it significantly lighter, stronger and 28 percent stiffer than the structure used in XF’s predecessor. Aluminium has been used to form the body sides, bonnet and front wings of XF.
