2016 Jaguar XF test drive and review

2016 Jaguar XF test drive and video review

The second generation XF (codename X260) was expected in UK showrooms in September 2015, with a phased roll-out to other markets to follow. It is the first Jaguar with LED headlamps. Because of extensive use of aluminium, the car will be 190 kg lighter than its predecessor. Engines range from 163 PS diesel to 380 PS petrol, with up to 700 Nm of torque. The car is 7 mm shorter than the predecessor, but the wheelbase is 51 mm longer, enabling the manufacturer to claim an increase in the space available for passengers in the back.
