2016 Jaguar XF seen during testing

27th August 2014

The new 2016 Jaguar XF has been spotted undergoing tests at Gaydon, Warwickshire, near to the Jaguar Land Rover Gaydon Centre. The second-generation XF model shares a design language with the Jaguar XE, and has been shown to include some distinct differences in a comparison to its siblings.

The XF features a longer overhang and window at the rear, while the back window also sits at a shallower angle when compared to the XE. Both vehicles are based on Jaguar’s newly-developed IQ[AL] all-aluminium architecture, which will debut on the 3 Series-sized XE to be revealed at the Paris Motor Show in October 2014. Jaguar plans to use it on the upcoming Jaguar SUV too, as well as the XF line-up. The aluminium structure will give the 2016 XF a significant weight reduction over present XF models, with up to 100kg claimed.

The prototype XF has been fitted with a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine, and the production version will see options from Jaguar’s new Ingenium engine family. Four-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol and diesel units are expected, as well as a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 for top-of-the-line variants.
