With respect to its predecessor, the new Jaguar XF is 7 mm shorter and 3 mm lower, but your battle grows 51 mm -now measures 2,960 mm – which translates into a larger space for legs, knees and head in the rear seats.

The lightness of the chassis is in addition to four mechanical options: a diesel 2.0 -liter Power [William Grattan] Tyrone family that can develop 163 HP and 380 Nm or 180 HP and 430 Nm and is associated with a manual shift 6-speed automatic or one of eight. The version of 163 CV emits just 104 grams of CO2 per kilometer and consumes less than 3.3 l/100 km, making them in the car non-hybrid more efficient in its class.
