2021 Jaguar XF Facelift Unveiled
The 2021 Jaguar XF facelift has been unveiled and offers a long time to be overworked both inside and out for the second-generation luxury sedan of the British brand.
There are no extensive revisions to the outside of the 2021 Jaguar XF. It maintains its sharp and sporty backward dimensions, but some of the details have been subtly updated.
The up-to-date XF with full LED headlamps is available in the top-spec, and although the latest version is available with full LED headlamps, this updated version comes with a set of LED-adaptive high-resolution headlamps for ‘Pixel’ and update F Pace with a new DRL Double J-Blade signature.
New alloy wheel designs are available as you could expect, and air vents are redesigned on flanks as well as an optional ‘black pack’ which replaces a certain chrome with the glass-black trim and darkens the tail lamp surroundings. Apart from the rear changes, sporty bumpers with a contrasting rear valance are built into them.
The 2021 Jaguar XF interior, as its design and quality, were not as good as its competitors, even when new, is the greatest change. The interior of the XF facelift, along with the Jaguar F Pace SUV façadelift, was developed from the ground up.
With a curvier design and more angular AC shuts up, the entire dashboard is new. Also, the door pads are different, with memory functions and now higher up lock / unlock buttons, new window switches, and prominent large handles. It is said that the storage space here was increased as well.
Material quality for the 2021 Jaguar XF is reported to have improved significantly by lifting trimming, taping, and changing gear straight from the latest Range Rover. It includes open-porous wood plates, high-grain leather pads with seat-embossed logos, aluminum brush window switches, and aluminum-powered grills for the HiFi audio system in Meridian.
You will also find JLR ‘s latest 12.3-inch high-definition screen-based cluster, button-heavy steering wheel, and the new rotative-dial AC control buttons that we saw first on the Jaguar XE facelift.
However, while the XF also has a rotary knob selector for the signature as for XE, it instead produces a new, stucco selector with stitching designed to look like a cricket ball seam.
The widescreen 16:9 is replaced by a high-definition 11,4-inch one with a 4:3 aspect ratio of the surface of the curved glass that sits proud of this dash as in the F Pace. This is because JLR took on the new Land Rover Defender’s latest infotainment from Pivi Pro (more on this shortly). More storage space is said to be in the central tunnel with all the controls going further.
The software Pivi Pro is at the heart of the 2021 Jaguar XF tech revisions and contains a large number of connected car tech devices. This includes vehicle tracking, vehicle status remote monitoring through a partner phone app, over-the-air updates, online electronic data monitoring, and navigation info for real-time traffic. And, of course, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The screen is said to be far sharper and faster than the old InControl Touch Pro unit, not surprising because the outgoing system was already far from the best segment.
Other remarkable features include wireless telephones charge, a filtrated, ionizing air purifier with a PM2.5 heads-up display, active interior noise cancellation, the digital rear-view mirror JLR’s ‘Clearsight’ mirror, 360-degree camera, and adaptive cruise control.
The 2021 Jaguar XF facelift has a range of 2,0 liters of four-cylinder engines called Ingenium, two petrol and one diesel engine. This time around, there are no six-cylinder options (though not available in India), which might give it a downside against its competitors.
It’s 250hp and 365Nm, and it is capable of 0-100kph in 6.9sec. The petrol, the same rear-driven powertrain used for the current car. The stronger P300 (as in a sports car of Jaguar F Type) produces 300Hp and 400Nm, which can be 0-100Kph in 6.1Sec and is standard with AWD.
The diesel engine is a mild, 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 48V lithium-ion battery and a belt-integrated start-generator (ISG) hybrid, pairing 204hp to 430 NM (24hp above) It is 0-100kph at 8.0sec and claims to be 14% more fuel-efficient than the previous diesel. All motors are standardly connected to an automated eight-speed gearbox.
Globally, the 2021 Jaguar XF and XE sedans and their SUV counterparts from within the brand, or the Land Rover sister brand, have not been able, and JLR is looking forward to this extensive update in a way which will remedy this.
Firstly, the range of the model has been significantly decreased to just three different levels – S, SE, and HSE, to prevent complexity, and price levels have decreased compared to the outgoing car so that these rivals, such as the Audi A6, 5 BMW series and Mercedes E class, are more aggressive.
It remains to be seen if these price changes are to translate into the Indian vehicle, but you can expect to start the model in 2021. The Jaguar I pace electric SUV and the updated Range Rover and Range Rover Sport were all listed above, including the launch of a new Land Rover Defender.
