2022 Jaguar XF comes with a fresh new face, as well as improved list of standard equipment
Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia recently launched the new Jaguar XF, featuring a new exterior design and a revamped interior.
Priced from RM498,800 (with 10% SST and excluding Road Tax, Registration and Insurance), the new Jaguar XF will be available in the R-Dynamic version.
The 2.0 litre four-cylinder 250PS Ingenium petrol engine can accelerate from zero to 100km/h within 7.1 seconds for this RWD model.
All engines are paired with Jaguar’s eight-speed automatic gearbox, which can be controlled using the steering wheel shift paddles for added driver engagement.
On the exterior, the XF’s refreshed front-end design now features a new grille that facilitates lower air intake, all-LED headlights with the ‘Double J’ signature, and a sleek rear bumper for a refined and modern appearance.
Inside, we have a more dynamic and bold cockpit design that is furnished with a sportier centre console that merges with the dashboard, equipped with a wireless device charger.
On the dashboard, drivers are greeted with a wider 11.4-inch curved glass HD touchscreen featuring the latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology.
The screen which is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous model, provides drivers with enhanced clarity and a simplified menu structure that streamlines access to common tasks from the home screen.
With enhanced connectivity using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, drivers can wirelessly connect their smartphones to the touchscreen and enjoy compatible apps within seconds.
Other notable new features include the vehicle’s segment-first Active Road Noise Cancellation technology that can help to reduce the noise heard by occupants for a more serene drive.
This feature is built into the Meridian Sound system. The new XF also benefits from the latest generation of driver assistance technology.
In addition, the Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts the throttle according to the distance to the vehicles ahead, and a Driver Condition Monitor ensures that the driver is fit to operate the vehicle with safety as a priority.
Jeffrey Gan, Managing Director, Retail & Distribution, Sime Darby Motors Malaysia, commented, “We strive to offer world-class vehicles that suit the diverse needs and preferences of Malaysians."
"In line with this, the Jaguar XF is a mid-size luxury sedan that is best in its class, renowned for its superb performance. With continued robust growth in the luxury car market, we are confident that the latest model is a highly attractive option.”
Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia, said, “With performance at the heart of its DNA, the new Jaguar XF continues to redefine modern luxury."
"With its inspiring design, intuitive state-of-the-art technology and engaging dynamics, we are pleased to raise the bar once again to elevate the driving experience of our vehicles for customers.”
That being said, the new Jaguar XF was fully booked at the pre-launch phase itself. With the launch, it is now available for booking once again. Interested customers are encouraged to place their orders soon.
