First images of the 2016 Jaguar XF sedan revealed ahead of debut.
Jaguar has released a pair of teaser images for its upcoming 2016 XF sedan, ahead of the model’s dramatic debut in London on March 24.
The British premium brand has announced that the new XF will perform a high-wire water crossing in London, before debuting at the New York motor show in April.
The sole top-down exterior image and recent spy pics suggest the design of the new model will be an evolution of the current generation sedan, along with drawing inspiration from the smaller XE sedan.
It will likely feature a sleek profile with muscular wheel arches and sports car-like rear-set cabin with a short boot lid.
The interior image is more revealing, showing off the car’s center console, dashboard and door design.
The interior styling is derivative of the new XE sedan, though the XF seems physically wider with more premium materials like leather and aluminium throughout the cabin – appropriate given its higher asking price.
Like other Jaguar Land Rover models, the new XF features a rotary gear selector.
The new XF will perform a high-wire water crossing in London, before debuting at the New York motor show in April.
The second-generation XF is also expected to use Jaguar Land Rover’s new multimedia system first fitted to the XE, which includes In Control apps.
Jaguar has also revealed some mechanical details of the new XF. It rides on a new aluminium architecture and the brand claims it will set new benchmarks for fuel efficiency and weight in its segment where it competes with cars like the Mercedes E-Class and BMW 5 Series.
Jaguar says that certain XF models will use less than 4.0L/100km on the European cycle.
Engine details will be revealed at the New York auto show, but it is expected the new model will use Jaguar’s new range of ‘Ingenium’ four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.
The 3.0-litre supercharged petrol V6 is also expected to feature, while the big 5.0-litre supercharged V8 will likely power an upcoming XFR performance model.
