NYIAS 2011: Jaguar XFR Facelift [Live Photos]
The most important changes have been brought to the exterior of the vehicle. The XFR now uses a new front fascia that is dominated by massive air intakes, with the same idea being used by the bonnet. Moving to the side of the vehicle, we find redesigned side skirts, as well as a set of fresh 20-inch alloy rims. The rear of the vehicle comes with a redesigned fascia that includes a discreet diffuser.
As for the standard XF models, these come with LED headlights, a beefier gfont girlle, a lower bonnet line, a redesigned front fascia, a fresh rear bumper, and redesigned LED taillamps.
The interior of the XF has also received a minor upgrade, being fitted with a new steering wheel, new colour central and dial-mounted screens relaying reprogrammed navigation and entertainment software. In addition to that, the seats have been redesigned, offering greater support and the trimming has also been refreshed.
The XF has received a four-cylinder unit for the first time, with customers now being able to choose a longitudinally-mounted 2.2-liter diesel with 190 hp and 332 lb-ft of torue. This is mated to an automatic 8-speed transmission and uses a Stop-Start system (another first for jaguar). Thus, it only emits 149 grams of CO2 per km and returns a fuel efficiency of 46 US mpg.
