THE dynamic new Jaguar XF saloon features an enhanced exterior, and an interior incorporating luxurious new materials, as well as seamlessly integrated, connected and future proof technologies.

On the outside, there’s a new front bumper with larger and lower air intakes for increased visual width. This is enhanced by a wider front grille featuring a mesh design detail inspired by Jaguar’s heritage logo.

Side fender vents now feature the iconic Leaper emblem, demonstrating the exceptional attention to detail found across the vehicle. New super slim all-LED quad headlights with ‘Double J’ daytime running lights are available with optional Pixel LED technology.

Available only in R-Dynamic HSE specification, the new XF features a series of distinct design elements for a more performance-focused look. An optional Black Exterior Pack adds bespoke elements finished in Gloss Black.

The XF has a new interior too, with a bolder, more dynamic cockpit design putting more focus on the driver via a sporty centre console, and an optional wireless device charger with phone signal booster.

At the heart of the new interior is a seamlessly integrated centrally-mounted 11.4-inch curved glass HD touchscreen in an elegant magnesium alloy casing, which controls the new Pivi Pro infotainment system.

Authentic finishes, including open-pore wood veneers and aluminium, feature in beautifully formed shapes such as the upper door insert and full width ‘piano lid’ that is formed across the width of the dashboard.

Laser-etched mid-line speaker frets and the metallic rotary dial of the JaguarDrive Control epitomise the attention-to-detail. New seats feature wider cushioning, new massage functions and enhanced coverage of the heated and cooling areas.

An embossed Jaguar Leaper features on all front headrests, while a set of ‘Est.1935 Jaguar Coventry’ upholstery tags highlight the brand’s heritage.

All Australian delivered XF saloons feature the 221kW Ingenium 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine producing 400Nm. It sports a twin scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift (CVVL), for a strong combination of refined performance and efficiency.

The XF R-Dynamic HSE, available exclusively with all-wheel drive, achieves 0-100km/h in 6.1 seconds. It’s paired with Jaguar’s eight speed automatic gearbox, which can be controlled using the steering wheel shift paddles for added driver engagement.

To help drivers access vital information quickly, the new XF features a new 12.3-inch HD interactive driver display with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout.

It can show full screen turn-by-turn navigation mapping, digital dials, media, contact lists or infotainment details. Working in conjunction with the latest head-up display, the new XF gives drivers all the information they need with the least distraction.

The intuitive new infotainment system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard and allows customers to connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth.

The collection of new convenience technologies also includes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) capability, ensuring the XF is always using the latest software.

Segment-first Active Road Noise Cancellation technology constantly monitors vibrations from the road surface and calculates the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants.

This means quieter noise levels in the cabin for superior refinement and reduced fatigue, commonly associated with prolonged exposure to low-frequency noise. The lightweight technology ensures vehicle weight and handling characteristics remain unaffected.

In addition, Jaguar’s ClearSight interior rear view mirror gives the driver an unobstructed view of the road behind. Using a wide angle rear facing camera, the system feeds images to a high definition screen within the frameless rear view mirror.

The new XF also benefits from the latest generation of driver assistance technology, including clear exit monitor, which alerts front and rear occupants to the presence of an approaching car or cyclist when exiting the vehicle.

Available to order now, the 2021 Jaguar XF R-Dynamic HSE P300 AWD is priced from $100,200, with first deliveries due early next year.
