2016 Jaguar XF Walk Around


All-new, the 2016 Jaguar XF is spare and elegant in appearance. The extended rectangular grille is flanked by slim headlamps that arc upward to air intakes. It looks a lot like the smaller, all-new 2017 Jaguar XE, but with a longer roofline and forward-sloped pillars, allowing a big rear window. Steep fascia slims the rear end, with twin circular taillamps.

Interior

Inside, the elegant and boat-like curve of the dashboard draws the driver in, to a display that is dominated by touchscreens to manipulate Jaguar’s new interface called InTouch. More expensive models use a TFT display behind the steering wheel, instead of gauges. The air vents are slim, in order to make room for that 10.3-inch touchscreen atop the center stack. The standard touchscreen is 8.0 inches. The upscale instrument panel is like the Range Rover’s, and hugely upgrades the infotainment system, including a WiFi hotspot in the car.

The screens are clean and rectilinear, sharing the space with spartan switches organized in small strips and clearly identified for climate and audio. It’s a blessing, as the Germans keep adding clickers and chrome to their instrument panels.

There’s lot of room inside, especially in the back seat and trunk. The Jaguar XF seats four comfortably. The trim options are broad, so you can make your British Jaguar feel German, Scandinavian, or bawdy in lipstick red leather.
