Following its world debut in New York last month, the brand new 2016 Jaguar XF is celebrating its Asian debut at the Shanghai Motor Show 2015. Designed as the British marque’s refreshed rival to the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6, the new XF certainly has some stiff competition to face. After seeing it at New York, we headed to the Jaguar booth in Shanghai to see the 2016 XF in the flesh once again.
The all-new Jaguar XF gets a range of engines, starting with the 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engines available with 163 PS and 380 Nm’s of torque or 180 PS and 430 Nm torque. Both are offered with six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. The 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel is also available with 300 PS and a staggering 700 Nm of torque. The 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine is available too, rated at 380PS and 450Nm torque.
Steering is Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) and advanced passive damper technology to improve economy and ride comfort is also present. The Jaguar Configurable Dynamics system is also available to individually tailor the settings of the dampers, steering, engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. Jaguar’s All-Surface Progress Control system is also featured offering safer low-speed driving in adverse conditions. It automatically manages the brakes and the throttle to deliver the best possible traction.
