Jaguar Entry-Level Model Put Off Till 2015 23
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Entry-Level, Jaguar, XF on 05 23rd, 2011

As you already know, Jaguar was mulling over an entry-level model for quite a while now. The car brand has now decided to push back its entry-level model till 2015 when their redesigned XF is launched.


The new decision brings disappointment to anticipating car buffs, but the company’s Global Brand Director, Adrian Hallmark, has expressed his helplessness revealing that  the company is wary that the car would have to compete with the current XF. This is because both the models would have approximately the same size and looks. Thus, for preventing the complications in the market the X-type successor for roads will not be available until the enlarged XF hits the market.

Being more positive, we hope Jaguar will have more time to refine its basic model and also have more facilities integrated to it during its release in 2016 or 2017.

The new XF is highly inspired from the earlier XJ. The bold exterior is stunning with its freshly sported front fascia incorporating a revised grille and bi-xenon headlights merged with LED daytime running light.

The refreshed exterior is complemented by new alloy wheel choices and paint hues. There’s a new hood, modified front fenders and redesigned LED taillights.

Interior designs are subtle but include improved seats, revised switchgear, a digital instrument cluster, instrument panel, optional 1200W Bowers & Wilkins premium surround sound system , and a new infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen display.

Engine options carry over with the exception of a new 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel that produces 190 PS (140 kW / 187 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.5 seconds, hit a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph), and average 52.3 mpg UK (5.4 L/100km / 43.5 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.
