All-Wheel Drive Jaguar XF is now available to order at Jaguar UK retailers with refined 180PS four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine, priced from £36,350 on-the-road.
Jaguar’s torque on-demand AWD system features Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) – a next-generation control technology developed entirely in-house. Launched in the F-TYPE AWD, IDD delivers rear-wheel drive character and agility but can transfer precisely the right amount of torque to the front axle when required, maximising the performance and dynamics benefits of the additional traction. The result is superb composure in even the most adverse weather conditions.
“The all-new Jaguar XF is already established as the most dynamically-rewarding saloon car in the business segment. Now we’re making the performance and traction benefits of all-wheel drive accessible to more customers worldwide by combining the system with our clean, refined and efficient Ingenium diesel engines.
“By making our Configurable Dynamics and Adaptive Dynamics technologies available on more models across the range, we’re once again raising the benchmark for ride and handling.”
Kevin Stride, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar XE, XF, F-PACE
Configurable Dynamics improves the driving experience still further by allowing the driver to individually tune settings for the suspension, steering, throttle and transmission through the vehicle’s touchscreen. Originally offered only on V6 models, Configurable Dynamics will now be available on all 180PS four-cylinder diesel models with automatic transmissions.
For vehicles equipped with the state-of-the-art InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, Configurable Dynamics also benefits from Dynamic-i. Displayed on the 10.2-inch touchscreen, this feature provides the driver with a stopwatch, G-meter, lap timer and graphs of brake and accelerator pedal activation, enhancing the all-new XF’s performance-orientated character.
And for the first time, the Adaptive Dynamics continuously variable damping system will be available on manual transmission models. The improved body control that Adaptive Dynamics provides, coupled with the smooth, precise gear change engineered for the six-speed gearbox, will offer keen drivers even greater involvement.
As well as benchmark vehicle dynamics, the all-new XF boasts exceptional usability and practicality, thanks to class-leading rear seat space and a 540-litre luggage compartment – the largest in the segment. The All-New XF is one of the safest cars in its segment too, achieving the maximum five star rating from Euro NCAP. And, with CO2 emissions from just 104g/km, class-leading residual values, class leading three-year unlimited mileage warranty and the lowest overall service costs in its class, the all-new XF also delivers remarkably low running costs.
Together with impressive fuel economy of 57.7mpg and CO2 emissions of only 129g/km, the AWD diesel model can achieve 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds. The 180PS Ingenium engine’s maximum torque of 430Nm – one of the highest ratings in the class – is generated from just 1,750rpm, delivering strong mid-range acceleration and outstanding real world performance. Maximum speed is 138mph.
