Updated Jaguar XF launched

2020 Jaguar XF range gets emissions-reducing tech and improved infotainment

  • XF gets Pivi Pro infotainment system
  • Minor styling tweaks
  • Prices start at £32,585

The new 2020 Jaguar XF has been revealed, sporting a host of technological changes over the previous version. There’s a new touchscreen infotainment system, plus a mild-hybrid diesel engine to reduce emissions. Styling changes amount to deeper air vents and standard-fit LED headlights, and the facelifted model is available in both saloon and Sportbrake estate body styles.

Now that the Jaguar XJ is no longer on sale, the XF is the brand’s largest saloon. It sits above the Jaguar XE and counts the BMW 5 SeriesMercedes E-ClassAudi A6 and Lexus ES among its rivals. The new XF costs between £32,585 and £46,610 before options.

A thoroughly redesigned centre console incorporates Jaguar Land Rover’s impressive Pivi Pro infotainment system, replacing the ageing Touch Pro Duo setup. The main feature is a curved 11.4-inch screen, which is where you access all the media and navigation functions. Below it is a smaller touchscreen that oversees the climate control and ventilation system, and there’s a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster in front of the driver.

Because the Pivi Pro system comes with two sims, you can connect two phones via Bluetooth at the same time. There’s also wireless phone charging, active noise cancellation and the ClearSight digital rear-view mirror, which relays a camera feed to the mirror so you’ve always got a clear view behind, even with passengers or luggage on board that would otherwise obscure your view.

A new mild-hybrid diesel engine replaces the outgoing unit, and it is said to manage 57.2mpg and 131g/km of CO2. The 48-volt electrical system improves both economy and performance, with the 201bhp diesel being more powerful than the last engine. It’s joined by two 247bhp and 296bhp petrol engines, which get rear- and all-wheel-drive respectively, while the diesel can be had with either.

Kicking off with the ‘S’ trim level, all XFs get electric leather seats, a 360-degree parking camera, traffic sign recognition and multi-zone air con. SE, exclusive to the Sportbrake, adds bigger wheels, adaptive headlights, keyless entry and a powered tailgate for £37,735. Top-spec HSE brings an upgraded stereo and upholstery set, and there’s a sporty R-Dynamic pack available across the range.
