Jaguar XF R-Sport Saloon and Sportbrake revealed with a 161bhp diesel

The XF R-Sport Saloon and Sportbrake are the first Jaguars to wear the new R-Sport badge, representing what Jaguar calls a compelling combination of elegance and real-world efficiency. Also the new model helps reduce the tax burdens on drivers and fleet managers alike.

Clearly not as exiting as the recently announced XFR-S Sportbrake with 541bhp, but obviously the XF R-Sport will be more popular choice with its 161bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, delivering 57.7mpg with CO2 emissions of just 129g/km. Not bad for a big saloon/estate.

The XF R-Sport comes with Intelligent Stop-Start system that uses a Twin Solenoid Starter to shut down the engine when the car comes to a halt, helping to reduce emissions and improve fuel consumption.

Visually the XF R-Sport model is distinguished with a sportier front bumper, unique badging, revised side skirts, rear spoiler, gloss black trim and 17-inch alloy wheels with low rolling resistance tyres.

The cockpit comes with Suedecloth seats with Dove contrast stitch with optional Red or Tan contrast stitching, as well as a choice of Dark Oak, Piano Black or Carbon Fibre veneers.
