Jaguar launches SE Business and Sport models of award-winning XF

Article by Christian A., on January 24, 2012

Jaguar has launched two new vehicle models that are set to join the lineup of the award-winning XF in the form of the Sport and SE Business variants. The launch was made on the same day that BusinessCar named XF as the 'Executive Car of the Year.' Paul Barker, Editor of BusinessCar, said that the Jaguar XF has proven its appeal to the business vehicle market with its stylish appearance and excellent running costs.

He added that Jaguar has "worked hard" to enhance the vehicle's car's attractiveness to corporate drivers with the first-rate new 2.2-liter engine. The automaker is also making further improvements that will only boost the XF's chances of still earning the award in 2013.

SE Business model is matched with the latest 2.2-liter Diesel 163 PS output engine. It features a satellite navigation system with an HDD mapping and a seven-inch touchscreen.

Among the standard equipment offered in this model are the intelligent start stop, leather and suedecloth seats, bi-Xenon headlights and a 400W sound system with DAB digital radio. On the other hand, the Sport variant is founded on the 2.2 Diesel 190 PS engine and adds the full aerodynamic pack launched on the Diesel S.

The model includes a revamped front bumper, side sill extensions, a black grille element, a subtle rear boot lid spoiler and a black rear valance that creates a luxurious but imposing look. The interior of the Sport features half leather suede-cloth seats, dove contrast stitch, and bond grain trim. It also has an electric driver and passenger adjustment.

These models also have piano-black trim with 'Sport' decals on the center console, joined by stainless steel foot pedals. Among the useful additions are heated front windscreen and front seats, 60/40 folding rear seats and a front parking aid plus a reversing camera. The SE Business and Sport are now available for ordering for as low as £31,500 (OTR) and £34,950 (OTR), respectively.

Jaguar XF’s cabin is very stylish and welcoming with its use of the best materials to have a modern appearance.

It still has dramatic elements that aim to “surprise and delight”, including air vents that automatically open when the start button is engaged, and the Jaguar Drive Selector that is included in the center console. The interiors have also received an extensive redesign.

New instruments and seats

The rear and front seats have been redesigned to include a hoop on both the backrest and the squab. This helps update their looks while providing better support by enhancing the seats’ profiles. It also features new hide colors, headlining, and veneers choices to give customers more customization options. The color scheme used for the center console has also been changed for all models, as well as the color schemes used on the steering wheel and the fascia.

All of these now sport the modern Aurora theme instead of having the tungsten finish.

New XF includes a wide range of technology that is integrated into the function of the car. These are all controlled via the central touch screen that has a polarizing filter that delivers better contrasts.

Just below the touch screen, there are added switches that helps lessen the work done by the driver. These switches control different functions and uses new graphics that was first seen on the Jaguar XJ. The main driver instrument panel is a full-color TFT unit that is clearer and has better resolutions.
