Subang Jaya – The fully imported All-new XF variants, the XF Prestige, and XF R-Sport, have been launched recently by Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (JLRM) as part of the continuous renewal of the Jaguar sedan range.
The retail price for the XF Prestige is RM450,000 and RM460,000 for the XF R-Sport, including GST.
Formed around Jaguar’s lightweight aluminium-intensive architecture, the All-new XF, which sits between the recently launched XE and the top-of-the-range XJ, brings an unrivalled blend of design, dynamic capability, luxury and technology to the premium business car segment.
The All-new XF’s dynamic, coupé-like design combines the outstanding proportions, elegant surfaces, and perfect lines which define all Jaguar cars, with a longer wheelbase, more interior space, and exceptionally low aerodynamic drag.
JLRM Managing Director Datuk Aishah Ahmad said the All-new XF presented an outstanding choice to those who were in the market for a premium business sedan.
“The All-new XF has all the trademarks of a Jaguar with its pure form, beautiful lines, and silhouette. While it is good to look at, it is even better to drive due to its lightweight aluminium – intensive architecture and near perfect 50:50 weight balance. The All-new XF is indeed a worthy successor of its award-winning predecessor and is set to carry on the legacy,” she said.
Meanwhile, Aishah said, JLRM expects to sell 180 units of the All-new XF variants which are categorized as the high range niche market cars.
According to Aishah, its fuel consumption is one of the best in its class. The 2.0-liter niche market price of RM450,000 is comparable to other models like BMW 5 series, E Class Mercedez Benz, Audi A6 and Toyota Lexus.
“We sold 90 units of XE model last year, and 180 units are expected to be on the road this year because of our confidence in this exciting, comfortable and styling product.,” she reiterated.
For a premium ownership experience, every All-new XF comes with Jaguar Care, an exclusive programme that comprises a five-year warranty, five-year servicing, and three-year roadside assistance.
Both available XF variants are powered by a 2.0-litre i4 turbocharged petrol engine with a maximum output of 240PS and 340NM of torque and matched to an 8-speed electronic automatic transmission with Jaguar Sequential Shift™.
Both XF variants are equipped with technologically advanced features that befit its status as a premium business sedan. These include JaguarDrive Control,Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS),Torque Vectoring and All Surface Progress Control (ASPC).
The latest XF uses Jaguar’s aluminium-intensive architecture to enable weight savings of up to 190kg. lighter than its predecessor plus an increase in torsional stiffness of up to 28%. It forms the foundation of the car’s impeccable ride, precise handling, and superb dynamics. -MalaysiaAsiaN
