Jaguar XF updated with efficiency improvements, more tech and new trim level

By Swansway Motor Group 30-01-2019


Jaguar has brought a raft of upgrades to the XF range – improving efficiency and technology offerings while also introducing a new trim level.

Thanks to a number of tweaks to the luxury car, including fitting low-resistance tyres, 2.0-litre diesel variants of the XF now see emissions cut by as much as 8g/km. This engine is available in 161bhp and 178bhp guises, with the latter seeing CO2 drop from 134g/km to 126g/km in saloon form when paired with rear-wheel drive and a manual gearbox.

A new ‘Smartphone pack’ has been introduced to the equipment list too, bringing both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard to all XF variants. Rounding out this wave of updates is the introduction of the Chequered Flag edition trim to the XF line-up.

Available in a choice of three colours – Yulong White, Santorini Black and Eiger Grey – Chequered Flag variants benefit from a restyled front bumper, body-coloured side sills, a boot spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels in a gloss black finish. Badging to mark out the model features on treadplates inside the car, along with a full-leather ‘R-Sport’ interior and black and red contrast stitching.

Interior of Jaguar XFAs for equipment, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation features as standard alongside a head-up display, keyless entry and Jaguar’s 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display in place of a traditional analogue instrument cluster.

Pricing for the revised Jaguar XF range starts at £34,950 for saloon variants and £37,390 for the ‘Sportbrake’ estate – with the refreshed range now on sale.
