2018 Jaguar XF Design
The Jaguar XF has a distinctly aerodynamic design and a lithe exterior that features an elegant arc running the entire length of the body to create a taut and windswept look. This design, in addition to looking good, manages airflow around the car, beginning with the nose, where intakes on either side of the front grille draw air in. Deep wheel arches then channel the air out to reduce turbulence, while rounded sides minimize drag-causing pressure differences.
Together, these features give the XF a drag coefficient of just 0.28. You can dress your Jaguar XF in your choice of 12 available color options, including the premium Rosello Red, metallic Corris Grey, and solid Narrik Black.
Jaguar XF Dynamics
With such a low drag coefficient, it’s no surprise that the Jaguar XF provides an exciting ride. With Torque Vectoring, this sedan offers enhanced cornering capabilities, too. Torque Vectoring technology helps you stay steady around corners due to brake pressure applied to the inside front and rear wheels to slow them down independently.
By simultaneously keeping power steady through the outer wheels, additional rotational force is applied around the vehicle’s axis, helping you to overcome tight corners. With Configurable Dynamics, you can also optimize your driving experience to meet your terrain and handling needs by manually adjusting your engine, steering, gear shift, and suspension characteristics to achieve the kind of performance you’re looking for.
This system also includes Adaptive Dynamics, which analyzes acceleration, braking, cornering, and throttle responses up to 500-times-per-second. This allows for optimizing suspension settings to deliver a smooth drive that reduces fatigue.
Jaguar XF Interior Refinement
Everything is rounded out with the refined interior of the Jaguar XF. From the moment you open the door you’ll be treated to quality cloth or leather materials in a variety of color combinations you can customize to suit your style. Finishes are available in aluminum, carbon fiber, or wood veneer, like Gloss Burl Walnut and Gloss Figured Ebony, to enhance your experience.
Keep your key in you bag or pocket and hit the start button. As your Jaguar comes to life, the air vents open and the JaguarDrive Selector™ gearshift rises up from the control panel. Available mood lighting in 10 different colors also illuminates to set the tone of your drive.
The final touch is standard Bluetooth® smartphone connectivity for hands-free phone calls, music, and more. A Wi-Fi hotspot means you can stream from your favorite compatible music apps without going over on data limits.
With the available 825-watt Meridian™ Surround Sound System, you can have a full concert experience from the comfort of your car. Music blasts through 17 strategically-placed speakers and 16 amplifier channels to deliver unparalleled sound.
