The 2016 Jaguar XF, codenamed as X260, has been imported in India in CKD form for R&D purpose. The new-generation Jaguar XF had its world premiere on March 24, 2015 in London, while making its public motor show debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show on April 1. The British luxury automaker even showcased the new sedan at the 2016 Auto Expo in Greater Noida in February. Coming to the imported stuff, two units have been imported of the 2016 XF - one in each petrol and diesel fuel trim.
Underpinning an all-aluminium architecture, the XF sedan is Jaguar’s biggest selling and most awarded car in its current product range. It is around 200 kgs lighter than its predecessor. Though, it is shorter in length by 7mm than the preceding model but the wheelbase has exceeded by 51mm. The sedan has a healthy boot space of 540 litres. As for features, it gets some of the finest in its segment such as the new 10.2-inch touchscreen InControl Touch Pro premium infotainment system, Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), All-Surface Progress Control, Jaguar Configurable Dynamics and 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster. Just so you know, Jaguar XF is the only Jaguar to flaunt full-LED headlights.
Mechanically, petrol variants of Jaguar XF are powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine which churns out 238bhp of top power and 340Nm of peak torque. It is linked to a 6-speed ZF automatic gearbox. Though, the 3.0L V6 supercharged engine - borrowed from the F-type - is also available with the flagship variant, but it unlikely to make its way in India. On the diesel front, the 2016 XF derives its power from the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine which develops 180bhp of maximum power and 431Nm of highest torque. It is paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. The imports have triggered the speculation that India launch of the second-generation Jaguar XF is due in next couple of months.
