The New York Auto Show has given us a glimpse to the face lifted Jaguar sedan. Jaguar unleashed its stylish, bolder and innovative XF and will hopefully hit the market by 2012.
The new XF is highly inspired from the earlier XJ. The bold exterior is stunning with its freshly sported front fascia incorporating a revised grille and bi-xenon headlights merged with LED daytime running light.
The refreshed exterior is complemented by new alloy wheel choices and paint hues. There’s a new hood, modified front fenders and redesigned LED taillights.
Interior designs are subtle but include improved seats, revised switchgear, a digital instrument cluster, instrument panel, optional 1200W Bowers & Wilkins premium surround sound system , and a new infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen display.
Engine options carry over with the exception of a new 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel that produces 190 PS (140 kW / 187 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.5 seconds, hit a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph), and average 52.3 mpg UK (5.4 L/100km / 43.5 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.
