Luxury sedan… It belongs to business class… Also sports… It is produced in England… You probably guessed that it is a Jaguar car, which is a direct heir to the S-type class. The XF model was first presented in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It was developed by the design office in Whitley. Interesting fact: initially the models were given a code name X250. The first deliveries started in March 2008. The whole model range is Jaguar.
So, what changes in appearance can be noted in the first place? The rear lights have finally become LED, the shape of the radiator, front fenders and even the hood has changed. All this made the British car Jaguar XF muscular and brutal. By the way, the headlights were equipped with bi-xenon lamps.
This has made the lighting technology thinner and more compact in size. The luminous intensity remained at the same level. In general, the appearance of the latest model XF strongly resembles the flagship model Jaguar XJ. Common features of a presentable exterior allow us to assume that the company wants to provide its top customers with a luxury style of ride for more affordable money.
There’s more comfort inside than anywhere else. Of course, the user can personalize the entire interior from scratch, choosing one of the materials or combine it with carbon, aluminum, lacquered wood, suede, leather. Both the front and rear seats of the Jaguar XF have greatly improved comfort and design. The new 7-inch monitor graphics were borrowed from the flagship model. Three different stereo systems are available to choose from. There are all modern interfaces that allow you to play music from any media.
What did the English hide under the hood of the new Jaguar XF? The engine line was replenished with a 2.2-liter turbodiesel with a capacity of 190 horses. Despite a noticeable decrease in volume (2.2 vs. 2.7), the dynamics of the car did not change. The jaguar still vomits in 8 seconds – by the way, it’s even faster than the previous model by 0.2 seconds.
Fuel consumption is quite funny – 4.5 liters per 100 km. Having left on a straight line, it is possible to count on a maximum of 225 km/hour. Regardless of the modification, all models are equipped with 8-speed ZF transmission with “stop-start” option. When you put pressure on the gas, the car flies off, but the speed gain is soft enough. In the cabin there is a complete acoustic comfort.

We sum up

The stylish Jaguar doesn’t just impress with its exquisite appearance. This is the maximum technology that allows you to enjoy the control of almost every km. It is pleasant that even in a base complete set enter many options for which at the companies-competitors it is necessary to pay solidly additional payment. The car is very economical and fully justifies the declared value on the Russian market.
