Whilst in Christchurch New Zealand, I happened to see for the first time, the beautiful Jaguar XF. With a classy design and sweeping lines, the new Jaguar XF stood out from all other automotive designs on the road at the time. A large grille creates a distinctive mark to the intimidating front. The low nose, rising waistline, and sleek roof-line provides a visual symphony and a powerful stance. Lots of subtle detailing from the woven mesh of the grille to the sculpted light clusters and vents make the Jaguar XF 3.0D exceptionally nice to look at. And the large alloy wheels complete the package beautifully.
Owning a Jag is a bit like making a bold statement. You are signifying that you are driving one of the elitist vehicles on the road not just because you want to be seen, but because you like to drive the finest. The new Jaguar XF 3.0D looks stunning and combines superior performance and tremendous fuel economy. Why wouldn’t you want to be behind its wheel?
The Jaguar XF 3.0D sets the pace. Under the sweeping bonnet lines lies a powerful V6 Diesel engine that is capable of accelerating the large sedan from 0-100 km/h in just 6.4 seconds. Keep the right foot firmly implanted, and the Jaguar XF 3.0D guns up to a maximum top speed of 250 km/h. This tremendous performance can yet deliver an average fuel consumption of only 6.8 litres/100 km and a CO2 emission figure of 179g/km. For the discerning driver who delights in the best automotive machine – look no further. Truly the Jaguar XF 3.0D offers the best of both worlds! The bold new Jaguar XF is the ultimate luxurious sports saloon. With 600 Nm of torque, she’ll do the talking, and you’ll be driving the class leader.
It most certainly was the coupe-like lines that captured my eye in Christchurch. The sexy exterior envelops a roomy interior that is spacious and boasts plenty of room for five adults seated in sublime comfort. Incredible luxury and craftsmanship make the Jaguar XF 3.0D a very worthy automobile to host the Jaguar emblem. The combination of real wood veneers and aluminium inserts provide lovely additions to the lavish leather interior. Jaguar: totally luxurious in a comprehensively contemporary way.
Halo illumination around the switch panels sets the standard, and gives the Jaguar XF a nice soft feel. The start-stop button and electric parking brake gives a soft glow that indicates their positions without distracting the driver. Soft, phosphor blue illumination is also used on the instrument dials which creates a visual splendour in the highly seductive Jag interior. Get into the XF and the start button pulses red, like a heartbeat. Press this button and the cast alloy JaguarDrive Selecto rises into the palm of your hand. Simultaneously, the rotating vents turn from their flush, ´parked´ position to their functional open position, and the navigation system initialises to its home page. Underway, the XF´s interior noise level is a barely audible 65.6dB. So friendly conversation can be held at a whisper. The XF Portfolio versions feature twin needle contrast stitching on the softgrain leather with suedecloth premium headlining, unique figured Ebony veneer, Bi-Xenon headlamps and a Bowers and Wilkins 440W surround sound system as standard. There is also a heated steering wheel, a television option and Portable Audio Interface. The Jaguar XF 3.0D promises you many top-end luxurious options to choose from.
Instant response, seamless power delivery and smooth refined performance characterise the new Jaguar XF 3.0D. This is a truly state-of-the-art car with a truly state-of-the-art engine, and the car is driven to be enjoyed. Of course, the handling and ride package is of a premium level – as you would expect. An Adaptive Dynamics suspension allied with Active Differential control delivers a balanced ride with impeccable high speed handling – a trait of every Jaguar motorcar. Selecting a transmission position is simple and is performed by turning the JaguarDrive Selecto with your fingertips. If you require going from D to S you simply push and turn.
For the drive of your life, check out the exceptional Jaguar XF 3.0D. It’s bloody marvellous. Hang on – a refined car needs refined language, so let me rephrase that. It’s simply magificent.
The current model series includes the:
