Even the entry level 2.0 litre car now has brake-biased torque vectoring, which will make it even better turning in to a bend, as do the V6 engined cars with the more powerful 380 PS version getting a limited slip diff and adaptive suspension.

In the cockpit it gets Jaguar's InControl Touch Pro system with a ten inch touchscreen as standard. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are due to be added later this year.
