Jaguar XF, 2016 Reviews
2016 Jaguar XF
The dynamic, coupe-like layout is formed around Jaguar's aluminium-intensive architecture and joins refined surfaces, the remarkable percentages and perfect lines which define all Jaguar automobiles, having more interior space, an extended wheelbase and extremely low aerodynamic drag.
"I consider the all-new 2016 Jaguar XF is the greatest looking car in its category. Refined, attractive and with percentages that imbue an excellent awareness of ethics - the all-new XF is accurate to the excellent convention of athletic Jaguar saloons while being totally of its own time."
The 2007 XF was a revolutionary step for Jaguar - and for the company automobile section. Joining a glossy, coupe-like a luxurious inside as well as exterior, the group standard was establish by it for driving dynamics and aesthetics.
Characteristics such as phosphor blue ambient lighting, rotating air vents and the rotary shift control set the cottage besides the opposition and made the XF a highly desired, aspirational vehicle. It was and the opposition could offer. The XF went to become the most-given Jaguar.
The architecture also provides dramatic advancements in the percentages as well as packaging so necessary to Jaguar layout.
The all-new 2016 Jaguar XF is 4,954 the wheelbase is 51mm longer than before, the front mm shorter. 3mm lower in relation to the first XF and though 7mm shorter, back seat space is category-leading thanks to 24mm more kneeroom 15mm more legroom and up to 27mm more headroom than before. Aerodynamics are also top-notch: the drag coefficient falls from 0.29 to only 0.26.
The light, stiff body can also be essential to the all-new XF's outstanding vehicle dynamics. Integral Link back suspension and double wishbone front suspension - united with close-50:50 weight distribution - provide the perfect balance between ride and . handling
It provides even better dynamics, even greater refinement for the relaxation of its own occupants, it provides an all-new infotainment system, also it utilises every last millimeter of packaging to maximise interior space, while using all of the weight-saving optimisation provided by our new aluminium-intensive design. As a motorist you'll see these gains in the minute you sit behind the wheel." Jaguar XF, Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Manager
EPAS additionally enables functions like innovative driver assistance systems including lane and camber damages -keep support, bay and driver condition monitoring - and parallel park-help.
Innovative passive damper technology provides extraordinary ride quality as standard via an additional valve which reduces damping forces at low rates. For better management the Adaptive Dynamics system tracks body move 100 times a wheel and second motion 500 times a second to find out the optimum damper settings for the driving conditions.
Optional on all V6 models, Jaguar Configurable Dynamics technology, provides the best in control and empowers the driver to individually tailor settings of steering system the dampers, engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
All-wheel drive (AWD) was engineered to the car from day one. The torque on demand system is not old, as well as the transfer case comes with a lighter, more quiet, better chain drive.
This provides back-drive handling with all grip and the operation advantages of AWD.
A first for XF AWD is the inclusion of the Adaptive Surface Reaction (AdSR) mode to Jaguar Drive Management. Leveraging the unrivalled expertise of Jaguar Land Rover, AdSR identifies the kind of surface, like gravel or snow, and accommodates the mapping of Dynamic Stability Control, transmission, steering system and the engine to help make the vehicle -traction conditions.
Skill is unrivalled in rear-wheel drive type also. All-Surface Improvement Control, developed for low-speed driving in adverse circumstances, automatically manages the accelerator along with the brakes to provide perfect grip, enabling the vehicle to pull away easily and without drama: the driver just must direct.
Connectivity and infotainment is the most complex Jaguar has ever offered.
Audio systems range from the extraordinary 17-loudspeaker, 825W Meridian digital surround sound system.
United, they provide unbelievable images, quick response times and help to future-proof the system over time for major improvements in functionality.
To minimise driver distraction -new Jaguar XF provides a colour laser head- . Compared to rival systems, this technology creates high contrast pictures that are simpler to read in strong sunshine, and is smaller, lighter.
Stereo camera technology empowers sovereign lane departure warning, crisis braking and lane -keep support systems. Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Support takes the worry from driving in stop-go traffic by monitoring the car in a secure space, in front.
The traffic sign recognition system brings the first program of an intelligent speed limiter of Jaguar. After set, speed limit signs are monitored by the system, compares them with navigation information and, when a change in speed limit is posted, can modulate vehicle rate by either slowing it right down to some lower limit or easily accelerating the car as much as a higher limitation.

The all-new XF can also be the very first Jaguar to provide adaptive complete-LED headlights. In once, energy consumption is reduced.
When the high beam support function is set, other vehicles will be detected by the stereo camera in the space, as well as the headlights will probably be dimmed mechanically as required to avoid dazzling other drivers.
The newest XF's four- and six-cylinder Euro 6 diesel and petrol engines are engineered for efficiency, smoothness and extraordinary answer, and all gain from gain from stop-start systems and intelligent regenerative charging. Characterised with an immediate accumulation of torque from low speeds to provide effortless acceleration, tasteful soundtrack of each one and the linear throttle response makes the driving experience as instinctive as it's rewarding.
By combining the all-new XF's lightweight aluminium-intensive body using the all-aluminium Ingenium engine family, Jaguar has set the group standard for emissions and fuel efficiency.
Designed, produced and developed in house to satisfy with the exacting conditions of Jaguar for torque, power and refinement, Ingenium is a modular family that will deliver an extensive array of world class diesel and petrol engines.
Every measure was taken to make sure these engines are efficient and not as dirty as they can be smooth and quiet -working.
Characteristics including the counterbalance cylinder bores and roller bearings for the camshafts and balancer shafts bring to Ingenium's standard low rates of internal friction - more than 17 per cent significantly less than the preceding 2.2-litre diesel.
The split-cooling system features a thermostat that is mapped, a variable-flow crossflow and pump channels to ensure a quick warm up from cold. A varying flow oil switchable and pump piston cooling parasitic decreases cut still further and so reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
Ingenium is additionally among the primary diesel engines to feature variable valve timing. A cam phaser on the exhaust side enables the catalysts to reach working temperature more rapidly, further reducing emissions. The technology also empowers robust and more efficient regeneration of the particulate filter.
Complementing the naturally low rates of shaking ensured by the look of the stiff, full-skirt cylinder block are acoustic covers fitted to the sump, the chain drive as well as the cylinder head. These covers prevent sound that is radiated in the engine from reaching the cabine and lead to the all- the extraordinary degrees of refinement of 2016 Jaguar XF. Switchable engine mounts supply exceptionally successful isolation in the body, further reducing the transmission of structure-borne sound.
