Driving Performance

The driving dynamics of Jaguar cars are legendary – XF raises this benchmark even higher.

COMFORT AND DYNAMISM

With its superior ride comfort and outstanding sport handling, XF delivers a breadth of exhilarating driving experiences. Available on petrol and diesel*, the option of All Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics gives XF even greater capability in challenging road conditions.

ALL WHEEL DRIVE & INTELLIGENT DRIVELINE DYNAMICS

XF offers Jaguar's unique All Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) and Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR)** on petrol and diesel models. Exclusively developed by Jaguar, the unique IDD software features sophisticated algorithms to react intelligently to road conditions. Predictive, as well as reactive, the system helps prevent you from losing traction instead of working to regain it. Adding to XF’s capability, the AdSR system can work at all engine speeds, automatically recognising differences between surfaces to exploit the maximum available grip.

**AdSR is optional on All Wheel Drive vehicles fitted with Adaptive Dynamics.

LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINIUM ARCHITECTURE

LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINIUM ARCHITECTURE

The foundation of XF’s impeccable ride, handling, and dynamics is Jaguar’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture. It facilitates a near perfect 50:50 balance, supporting an agile and precise drive. The weight saved by our extensive use of aluminium improves fuel efficiency, reducing CO2 emissions to as low as 104g/km and makes XF one of the lightest cars in its class.

RIDE & HANDLING

RIDE & HANDLING

XF responds with agility and performs with dynamism while always maintaining ride comfort. This is thanks, in part, to XF's light, yet exceptionally strong and stiff, Lightweight Aluminium Architecture. It’s the ideal platform for the sophisticated front double wishbone and rear Integral Link suspension systems and gives XF the spirit of a sports car.

INSPIRED SUSPENSION

INSPIRED SUSPENSION

Strong and light aluminium components make up XF’s sophisticated front and rear suspension systems. At the front, a double wishbone suspension structure, similar to F-TYPE’s, ensures class-leading handling. An Integral Link suspension system at the rear provides stiffness to support handling, improve ride quality even further and extend XF’s breadth of dynamic capability.

ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL

Unique to this class of car, Jaguar’s All Surface Progress Control (ASPC)* gives you added confidence in slippery conditions – whether starting from a snowy driveway, driving on an icy incline, or even towing on wet grass. ASPC is a low-speed cruise control that helps XF overcome low traction situations, whatever the weather, allowing you to concentrate on steering.
*Automatic transmission only.

CONFIGURABLE DYNAMICS

Inspired by the F-TYPE sports car, the optional Configurable Dynamics* system allows you to set up XF's dynamics for throttle mapping, gearbox shift points and steering to suit your performance driving needs. It’s activated when Dynamic Mode is selected in JaguarDrive Control. Dynamic Mode enlivens XF's sporting character, sharpening throttle response, increasing steering weighting and performing gearshifts more quickly and at higher engine speeds. When optional Adaptive Dynamics is fitted, you can make your setting even more personal by configuring the damper settings.
*Optional with all engines excluding the 2.0 litre 4 cylinder 163PS Diesel. Standard on XF S.

ADAPTIVE DYNAMICS

ADAPTIVE DYNAMICS

Whether you're accelerating on the motorway, cornering on country roads or navigating around town, Adaptive Dynamics* modifies XF's response to match the conditions and your driving style. The system constantly adjusts the dampers to provide the optimum balance between poise and comfort at all times.

*Optional with all engines excluding the 2.0 litre 4 cylinder 163PS Diesel. Standard on XF S.

ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING

ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING

XF's Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) offers outstanding feedback, control and immediate power assistance. Allowing sophisticated computer management to adapt the levels of steering support, EPAS finely calibrates the amount of power assistance for every bend and manoeuvre. EPAS also works in conjunction with the car’s other assistance features, including Lane Keep Assist (LKA)* and Park Assist*, to offer heightened safety and increase driver convenience.

*Optional features.

JAGUARDRIVE CONTROL

JAGUARDRIVE CONTROL

JaguarDrive Control allows you to select Standard, Eco, Dynamic or Rain Ice Snow Mode, each subtly changing the steering, throttle response and gearbox shift points. Eco Mode encourages fuel-efficient driving while Dynamic Mode increases throttle sensitivity, holds gears for longer and increases steering weighting. By selecting Rain Ice Snow Mode, the system automatically dampens acceleration and applies more gradual traction for slippery conditions.
