The brand new 2016 Jaguar XF now comes with a thorough redesign and enhanced technology that will assuredly make the XF a top prize contender among the above mentioned rivals.
What now stands out in the new 2016 Jaguar XF include a lighter weight that will account for better handling ability and fuel economy ratings. There are newer safety and connectivity technology and a stylish interior too as evidenced by the following review.
2016 Jaguar XF interior and exterior design
Inside the new 2016 Jaguar XF is a new infotainment system, a massive 10.2” screen will be made available. It is downright impressive, however the installed softwares behind it is the real phenomenon.
The new system which has already been dubbed the InControl Touch Pro, will be capable of Waze-like route planning that will be aided by SSD-based maps with pinch zoom, real time traffic analysis, custom wallpaper and configurable apps.
Moreover, the system also comes with social media and messaging functionality. These feature among others will undoubtedly make certain phone-based activities safe enough to do while on a driving getaway and is mandatory for your phone to be connected.
However, the system will lock out all other phone features while it is connected and may dissuade other people from using it in the first instance. The new car will also come with a new laser head-up screen display that will be able to project the gear position, speed and navigation instructions in bright colours.
The new 2016 Jaguar XF will come loaded with tones of safety features that will include lane departure warning system, a drowsy-driver monitoring system, lane-keeping assist and traffic sign recognition system that will adjust the adaptive cruise control accordingly.
The exterior on the other hand did not receive tons of performance updates as the interior, in light of this, the new vehicle will however come with a better aerodynamic body than its previous version.
As mentioned above, the vehicle will also come with a roomier interior thanks to the slight increments in its length. The four door sedan will also come with an aluminium-infused chassis that will result in the vehicle shedding around 130-265 pounds depending on the trim model.

Under the hood of the new 2016 Jaguar XF will be several engine options that will be provided for buyers. To be precise, only two engines will be provided and will include a 3L supercharged V6 that will be capable of generating up to 340 horsepower and 332 pound of torque.
The other engine will be the 3L supercharged V6 that will be tweaked and will have better outputs than the first one. It will be able to generate up to 380 horsepower and about 333 pounds of torque.
These engines will come mated to an 8-speed auto transmission system that will transmit power to the standard RWD or the optional AWD drive system that will be present in upper trim models.
Despite the above engine specs, the new 2016 Jaguar XF R model which is the uppermost trim model will most likely get a revised version of the current model’s 5L V8 engine, while the base version will most probably come with a 2L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
