JAGUAR STORIES: TECHNOLOGY
REASONS YOU’LL WANT TO TAKE THE JAGUAR XF FOR A DRIVE THIS WEEKEND
Following on from its award winning predecessor, the 2017 Jaguar XF is a perfect example of style and substance.
From its impressive CO2 emissions to an all-new infotainment system, here are 8 reasons you’ll want to get behind the wheel of an XF this weekend.
1. IT’S BEEN REBUILT FROM THE GROUND UP
Injected with the sleek, exciting design of a sports car it’s easy to see how XF pays homage to the Sir William Lyons’ design philosophy. XF is just as dynamic on the driveway as it is on the A57 Snake Pass. It’s mature, sophisticated and unmistakably Jaguar.
Premium materials such as soft leathers and veneer finishes make XF luxurious to the touch. While an abundance of natural light means that no matter where you travel, you’ll arrive relaxed and refreshed.
2. IT’S LIGHTER THAN EVER, WHICH MAKES IT MORE RESPONSIVE
The Jaguar XF is lighter than ever – 190kg below its predecessor. This weight reduction makes it more poised, precise and responsive. If you were heading down the A686, you’d want to be behind the wheel of the XF.
You’ll enjoy supreme levels of ride comfort and handling on the road thanks to the lightweight sportscar-inspired front double wishbone, derived from the F-TYPE, and rear integral link suspension systems.
3. IT’S BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, AND EVEN BETTER FOR YOUR WALLET
When it comes to CO2 emissions the XF is impressively efficient, with some engine options offer emissions as low as 104g/km. What’s more, for company car drivers the XF offer BIK rates from 20% and the combined driving cycle is up to 71.7mpg.
Thanks to the all-aluminium construction of the XF’s Ingenium engine you’ll not only get the power you want, you’ll get low fuel consumption you need too.
4. PROGRESSIVE TECHNOLOGY MAKES MOTORWAY DRIVING EASIER THAN EVER
The 2017 Jaguar XF features the latest intelligent innovations to keep you safer on the road.
Jaguar’s Traffic Sign Recognition technology utilises a highly advanced forward facing camera to detect speed limits and no overtaking signs. It even takes temporary speed limits and road conditions into account, which means you’re always one step ahead.
The XF will also feature Driver Condition Monitoring, a system that uses cutting-edge algorithms to measure levels of human tiredness. If the system detects signs of fatigue, it will provide a gentle reminder that it’s time to pull over and take a break.
5. THE VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT CLUSTER MODERNISES THE WAY DRIVING DATA IS DISPLAYED
From the moment you push the start button, XF is pure theatre. With InControl Touch Pro, the glass binnacle comes to life with a high-definition virtual instrument cluster.
XF’s optional Head Up Display technology is derived from fighter jets, projecting crisp laser generated imagery, creating a modern glass cockpit. From the driver’s seat you can customise everything to suit your personal driving needs. Your dials have never looked so good.
6. THE INTERIOR CAPTIVATES ATTENTION, CREATING A SENSE OF OCCASION
The all-new XF continues its reputation for creating a sense of occasion from the moment you step inside. Stylish, spacious with a degree of subtlety that demonstrates an attention to craft.
You can enhance the XF’s atmosphere with interior mood lighting or LED reading lights that offer clear, precise illumination for you and your passengers. Not forgetting that there’s more space than ever before as well; we’ve increased the rear knee room and headroom, meaning the XF has never been so comfortable.
7. IT FEATURES THE MOST ADVANCED MULTIMEDIA SYSTEM JAGUAR HAS EVER OFFERED
The lightning-fast 8” touch screen is your window to a whole world of connectivity. InControl Touch is your hub for everything entertainment; seamlessly connectivity allows you to control your phone and voice command means you can stay in control, with your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
You can upgrade to InControl Touch Pro to enjoy additional innovative features such as a 10.2” multi-gesture screen, WiFi Hotspot for up to eight devices, 10GB of on-board dedicated media storage and an all-new navigation system, with 2D or 3D maps, satellite views and a predictive navigation function.

8. IT DELIVERS A RICH, IMMERSIVE AUDIO EXPERIENCE – PERFECT FOR MUSIC LOVERS
The XF’s sound system is the new standard for superb audio. The optional Meridian system gives you a truly rich and immersive auditory experience.
Technology such as Dynamic Volume Control has been integrated to automatically balance out unwanted noises. The 380W system delivers exceptional definition, crystal clear highs and full deep bass.
For those that upgrade, there’s the even more powerful 825W system with Meridian Trifield technology. They all work in perfect harmony, meaning that no matter where you’re sitting, your music has never sounded so good.
So what are you waiting for? The weekend is calling.
