Jaguar is another name for youth and sports debt at the same time with a touch of elegance. The characteristics of the vehicles are more than good from design all the way to the interior.
2016 Jaguar XF Design Exterior and Interior
Although many have complained that the British giant went away from their school of design, and that XF does not sound like the famous design of the Jaguar XJ, which was founded more years during the 1960s, the car has become a huge success, and annual sales regularly exceed the figure of 50,000 vehicles . On the market now comes the second generation XF, officially presented at this year’s Auto Show in New York, and Jaguar promises that the new model is larger, lighter and more modern compared with the model that replaces. The new 2016 Jaguar XF shares a platform with the recently introduced XE and brings two new 2.0L engine as an option (one gasoline and diesel), along with the already known two V6 options. Said platform is made of 75% aluminum and provides a weight distribution of 50-50, and Jaguar promises that it is 30% stronger compared to its predecessor.
Thanks to the use of lighter materials, the new 2016 Jaguar XF is 190 kg lighter compared with the model that replaces, which should improve efficiency and CO2 emissions. XE and XF also share most of the mechanics, including a complete suspension of the new eight-speed automatic transmission. Jaguar also unveiled a new All Surface Progress Control system with which the behavior of the car during severe weather conditions (such as snow for example) significantly better. In terms of dimensions, the new XF is 7 mm shorter and 3 mm narrower, but with a longer chassis by 51 mm (overall length 2,960 mm) is almost identical to the much acclaimed BMW 5-Series. British giant promises the largest space in the rear seats in the class, in which also includes the famous rivals such as the Mercedes E-Class, Audi A6, Lexus GS and others. In terms of mechanics, the most attention attracting new 2.0L diesel that develops 161 hp and 380 Nm of torque and offers CO2 emissions of just 104 g/km. The above figure is the smallest in the class and the leadership of the city off the BMW 518d, whose powerful 141 hp diesel emits 114 g/km.

The offer will also include more powerful version of said engine with 178 hp and 430 Nm of torque while the top of the range diesel makes the 3.0L V6 engine with 296 hp and 700 Nm of torque.
