Jaguar XF hardens up

IT MIGHT look almost the same, but Jaguar’s all-new XF sedan is a radical departure from the previous model. Featuring more lightweight aluminium than before, the BMW 5-Series/ Mercedes-Benz E-class fighter sheds a massive 190kg in the leap to its second generation. Part of the change is the adoption of Jag’s new Ingenium engines, which in the XF will introduce a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel. There will also be a twin-turbo V6 diesel, a supercharged V6 petrol and potentially a range-topping supercharged V8XF-RS. The XF goes on sale here in 2016.
