Jaguar unveiled their all-new XF sedan at the 2015 New York Auto show recently and within a matter of weeks, the car is on our roads. This completely camouflaged 2016 Jaguar XF has been snapped in Bangalore by an Autocar India reader, which interestingly carries number plates from some other country. This could mean that this is on a cross-border cross-terrain international testing.
This is the second-generation of the 5-series rivaling sedan and uses a new iQ aluminium platform which has helped the car shed as many as 190 kilograms of extra weight. Jaguar also says that the body which is 75 percent aluminum now, is 30 percent stiffer.
Here is the quick list of differences of this 2016 XF compared the current model…
- bigger wheels
- larger grille
- bigger airdams
- longer bonnet and low slung
- Shorter than the current version but has a longer wheelbase
- More aggressive looking
In terms of engines, it is expected that Jaguar may introduce the new 2.0 liter ingenium petrol and diesel engine range. The 3.0 liter V6 petrol and diesel engines are also expected to be on offer.
Jaguar may showcase this second generation XF in India at the 2016 Auto Expo after which it is expected to go on sale at prices slightly higher than the current model.
