Next-gen 2016 Jaguar XF mule starts cold weather testing

Here we have the latest spy shots of the next-generation Jaguar XF, caught cold weather testing near the Arctic Circle.

The chassis testing mule does not reveal much as the body is based on the current generation model, but it looks like the new model will grow in size as the wheelbase is longer, making room for the new entry-level Jaguar XS. The front track also looks wider and the single exhaust tip is mounted closer to the centre.

Next XF will use a new stretched version of the modular iQ[Al] platform, which was previewed in the C-X17 crossover concept last year at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Engine line-up will go through major changes and is rumoured to come with a range of new four cylinder engines, replacing V6 units(both diesel and petrol) linked to nine-speed automatic gearbox.

The All-wheel drive will be optional again and most likely a roomier XF Sportbrake will follow later in the future.

We expect to see full-body prototypes sometimes this year.
