Strong and light aluminum components make up the sophisticated front and rear suspension systems. At the front, a double wishbone suspension structure, similar to the F‑TYPE, ensures class-leading handling. An Integral Link suspension system at the rear provides rigidity to support handling, improve ride quality even further and extend the XF breadth of dynamic capability.
Shared with the F‑TYPE, the 3.0-liter, 380 hp supercharged V6 engine is standard with the XF S and delivers instant access to high levels of performance and torque at all engine speeds, as well as refinement. The XF S AWD sedan is capable of 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds.
The XF takes the renowned ride and handling of Jaguar vehicles to an even higher level. It delivers true sporting character while offering outstanding levels of refinement. This is thanks, in part, to its advanced aluminum intensive architecture, which delivers superb torsional rigidity and is the ideal platform for the advanced front double wishbone and rear integral link suspension systems.
Even when fully loaded, the comfort and precise handling of the XF Sportbrake is maintained by a self-leveling rear air suspension. This system automatically inflates air springs to counteract the weight of heavy loads, helping to ensure a level chassis and ride height.
The unique Intelligent All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) is available with all XF engines. Exclusively developed by Jaguar, the unique IDD software features sophisticated algorithms designed to react intelligently to road conditions. Predictive as well as reactive, the system helps prevent you from losing traction instead of working to regain it. On the XF S AWD, adding to that model capability, the Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) system can work at all engine speeds, automatically recognizing differences between surfaces to exploit the maximum available grip.
Whether you’re accelerating on the highway, cornering on country roads or navigating uneven surfaces around town, available Adaptive Dynamics is designed to instinctively modify the vehicle’s response to conditions and your driving style. The system constantly adjusts the electronically controlled dampers to optimize the suspension settings.
The XF form has been rigorously optimized for aerodynamic efficiency and stability. Every element exploits the exterior's maximum aerodynamic potential while supporting the stunning proportions of the XF.
Optional adaptive LED headlights4 featuring Jaguar signature ‘J’ blade Daytime Running Lights give the XF a striking on-road presence.
Made from a single piece of glass, the standard XF Sportbrake 17.2-sq-ft fixed panoramic roof† is the largest in its class and gives uninterrupted views of the sky.
Push the Start button and the XF awakens. With perfect choreography, air vents rotate open, the JaguarDrive™ selector rises smoothly, the engine growls — all inspiring you to anticipate the drive ahead.
The XF cabin is a destination of luxury, choice and space. Additional ambient illumination throughout the XF cabin can be ordered to enhance its elegant interior. Select the Premium Interior Upgrade Package for your XF and you will have the choice of ten colors to complement your mood.
To improve air quality, the XF Sportbrake offers an optional Cabin Air Ionization system.
The standard 17.2-sq-ft fixed panoramic roof† available with the XF Sportbrake introduces even more natural light and airiness to the interior. There’s also the option of a gesture roof blind that can be opened and closed with a light wave of your hand without you ever having to take your eyes off the road.
Innovative technology features – Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Driver Condition Monitor (DCM) – are available on the XF. LKA is designed to sense unintentional lane drift and to help steer the vehicle back into its lane. DCM constantly analyzes driving inputs to detect lapses in concentration due to tiredness. When the system determines that a potentially drowsy driver is at the wheel, it suggests taking a break via a notification in the instrument cluster and an audible signal.
Available Traffic Sign Recognition† technology uses a forward-facing camera to detect speed limit and no passing road signs, and then displays them to the driver on the instrument panel. This system takes account of temporary speed limits. The Adaptive Speed Limiter,† if activated, will use the signage information, alongside map data from the navigation system, to help the driver keep the XF under the appropriate speed limit.
In an emergency braking situation, the XF is ready. Utilizing a forward-facing camera, should a potential collision be detected, the XF gives an audible forward collision warning, allowing you time to take action. Visual warnings in the Head-Up Display (if fitted) and instrument cluster follow. If a collision is still anticipated and the driver takes no action, the system then applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact.
