All-new Jaguar XF has revealed during dramatic ‘high-wire’ water crossing in Canary Wharf.Expert British stunt man Jim Dowdall, who starred in a long list of Hollywood movies including Bond, Bourne and Indiana Jones, drove the all-new Jaguar XF 240 metres across a high-wire to demonstrate the new XF’s lightweight aluminium-intensive construction. The new XF is 80kgs lighter than its closest competitor, resulting in best-in-class efficiency (over 70mpg) and CO2 (104g/km).
The XF is lighter and more efficient, with unrivalled refinement, dynamics and design. The XF’s aluminium-intensive architecture enables class-leading weight: 80kgs and emits the lowest CO2 emissions of any non-hybrid model in its segment. Boasting class-leading efficiency of over 70mpg, the XF looks simply elegant, with a progressive design combining short overhangs and outstanding proportions with exceptional aerodynamic efficiency!
Double-wishbone and Integral Link suspension deliver exceptional ride comfort, handling and unrivalled refinement to the new model as well as encompassing a bespoke 825W Meridian digital surround sound system with 17 speakers and an all-new 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the InControl Touch Pro.
The XF’s cabin utilises a stunning blend of contemporary luxury materials and finishes, featuring the well-known traditional Jaguar craftsmanship and state-of-the art technology. The car’s sleek exterior and luxurious interior make it a desirable vehicle.
“In creating the all-new XF, as a design team we have been driven by discipline, the discipline of simplicity. Every exterior line on the XF has a clear purpose – nothing is superfluous. Achieving that simplicity takes time and requires great determination; it’s all too easy to add lines to a car, but much harder to add character by leaving lines out.
“Inside too, we have been driven by the desire to ensure the XF’s cabin is as comforting as it is comfortable. New technology, including our new 10.2-inch touchscreen, is combined carefully with materials that cosset and reassure. The all-new XF has a clear sense of calm and strength, both outside and inside – and I’m proud of my team for delivering that.” Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar
