Jaguar has updated its XF and added new powertrains and technology to both its executive saloon and Sportbrake and the XE compact executive saloon.
The XF gets new front and rear bumpers, LED lights, new grille and a new interior, while both models will benefit from a new 204hp i4 diesel engine with mild hybrid technology, giving it emissions figures from 127g/km in the XE and 130 in the XF.
Jaguar Land Rover’s latest infotainment system is also fitted, in the XF’s case through a new 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen, which joins a new 12.4-inch driver display. Called Pivo Pro, the system now features Apple Carplay in both models, can connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth, and features over-the-air updates, allowing software updates without having to take the car to a dealer.
“The Jaguar XF features a new exterior design which delivers a more assertive and assured presence while the all-new interior is more luxurious, tactile and demonstrates an exceptional level of craftmanship,” said Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar. “The inside of the XF seamlessly integrates advanced technologies and is simply a beautiful place to be.”
The XE doesn’t get the same external facelift as its bigger brother, but does get interior updates including a new split-rim steering wheel and an updated seat design.
We are delighted to introduce our upgraded and streamlined 21MY XF and XE ranges,” said Rawdon Glover, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK. “With significant enhancements to technology and design for the new XF, and further refinements building on the success of XE, customers get more of the features they love and new features that add even more desirability and excitement.
All XE and XF models are fitted with an eight-speed automatic transmission and can be specified with all-wheel drive, with orders being taken now on both cars.
