qualitative and quantitative leap that makes Jaguar XF with 2015, the second generation of its premium midsize sedan. In its technical genes, it highlights the massive use of aluminum and a clear commitment to technology.
2015 looks set to be the year of the saloons for Jaguar. The resounding and unprecedented premiere of the new XE-its access model to compete against rivals such as the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class will have its continuity with the staging of the new generation -the second– of the XF.
The arrival on the market of Jaguar XF 2015 It will occur along the autumn, but first you will have a prominent role in the New York Hall -It is held from 1 to April 12 in the Great apple. The first and most important quality of new XF found in their genes, since the mass use Aluminum (same as him XE) In its construction will direct consequence an important weight reduction, to the point that the British firm ensures that the XF II is up to 80 kg lighter than its direct competitors. Namely, 75 percent of the components of the new XF will be manufactured in such a lightweight and durable material, allowing in turn be up 190 kg lighter than the previous XF.
The lightness of the new XF is not its only virtue, because in structural terms has also been able to optimize its aerodynamics, running to declare a drag coefficient Cx of only 0.26 (Before 0.29). And we know, the sum of aerodynamic lightness + directly impacts both agile handling and lower fuel consumption. In fact, the group brand Tata Motors announces an average expenditure of 3,9 l / 100 km and a level of emissions 104 g / km CO2 for release 2.0 Diesel 163 hp 38.74 mkg power and torque.
Full illumination LED headlights and taillights new XF, the first Jaguar car incorporating this technology.
Between 163 and 380 hp
The ultra-efficient diesel engine Ingenium from 163 hp mentioned will be followed by a 2.0 180 hp and 43.84 mkg of torque. Both four-cylinder diesel blocks may be combined with either a six-speed manual transmission as an automatic eight-speed. It will crown the supply of diesel by 3.0 V6 biturbo 300 hp and 71.38 mkg of torque.
For those who prefer the gasoline, he XF 2015 It will be available with three alternatives: one tetracilíndrico 2.0i 240 hp turbo and supercharged compressor 3.0 V6 340 and 380 hp.
Almost identical in size
Metro in hand, the second generation Jaguar XF It is only 7 mm shorter and lower 3 mm, while the data does change significantly is on the distance between axis, with a increased 5.1 cm to total 2.96 m. This modification by the redesign of the interior are based, as Jaguar, for the XF step forward in terms of greater space for the occupants, especially in free space for legs and knees.
Jaguar promises balanced behavior with the right amount of comfort, agility and refinement aboard the new XF. First, the front suspension has a deformable parallelogram scheme, while the hindquarter Integral Link rear suspension is mounted. These changes have to join a suitable weight distribution of 50 percent axis.
The electric power steering and the passive damping system They are also key genes XF. For those who wish to vary settings of springs and dampers, it may use the system Adaptive Dynamics, while drivers who want to fully customize your car’s dynamism can ‘play’ with alternative device configurable Dynamics, with individual choice of the operating parameters of the suspension, steering, the engine and the response time of the automatic transmission.
Versions permanent AWD They can count on the system Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD), with the role of torque distribution to the rear axle is raw. And in very extreme low grip conditions, can become operational technology All-Progress Control Surface, which automatically controls the brakes and accelerator-the driver only needs to steer the wheel.
Technology, technology blessed
In a car that wants to belong and be premium with all laws, bet without reservation by the technology it must be quite clear. After ensuring maximum dynamism, we must mention the system Torque Vectoring by Braking control torque distribution curve. In the chapter on security and driving assistants not lacking systems like Emergency braking Autonomous (AEB), assistant care-fatigue measurement, sensor traffic sign recognition, intelligent speed limiter and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with control system at low speed.
Have revealed the sale prices version of the 3.0 V6 petrol engine in two power levels and associated with all-wheel drive. On the one hand, the Jaguar XF 340 hp costs from 71,856 euros in its basic finish ‘Mashed potatoes‘; the cost of access becomes 75,237 euros of termination ‘Prestige’ of 77 739 euros in ‘R-Sport’ and 79,269 euros in ‘portfolio’.
On the other hand, we have the top end, the XF S, with 380 hp and that part of the 81,313 euros.
Progress in all senses new XF, a premium saloon which it presents a good basis for German trio stand up to the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class
In terms of connectivity and entertainment, the second-generation Jaguar XF will feature the latest developments in the information system, navigation and entertainment InControl Touch Pro, equipped with a 10.2-inch touch screen and Dual View technology.
