Spearheading the updated range is the 275 PS Diesel S model, which will now feature some of the unique sporting character of the XFR to deliver an even more exciting driving experience.
The MY11 XF Diesel S now comes with an XFR derived interior as standard while the Adaptive Dynamics system, currently featured on the XFR and XK range, is available as an option on the high-performance diesel. Jaguar’s Adaptive Dynamics system is featured in one of the two new option packs which are available exclusively on the XF Diesel S in 2010 to further enhance the driver’s enjoyment of the performance characteristics of this car – the Dynamics Pack and the Aerodynamic Pack.
Dynamics Pack. The Dynamics Pack incorporates the Adaptive Dynamics system. This high-tech system analyses chassis movement and driver and wheel inputs 500 times every second, continually adjusting the suspension to improve handling without loss of comfort. The result improves on the XF’s – a balance between a luxury ride and sports car agility. This optional pack also includes Shadow or Silver finish 20-inch Volans five-spoke alloy wheels, and costs from £1250 depending on model.
Aerodynamic Pack. The Aerodynamic Pack is designed to give an even bolder style to the XF Diesel S. The striking new black mesh inserts for the grille and lower air intakes give a fresh look to the front of the car and for even greater visual impact, the sculpted lower air intake blades can be supplied with bright-white LED daytime running lights. The side sills from an XFR complete the package. The cost of this option pack is £1500, or £2000 with the LED lights.
Performance Interior. The upgraded cabin includes the leather sports seats from the XFR, featuring 18-way adjustment for the driver and 14-way for the passenger. Power-adjusted raised side bolsters will keep driver and passenger firmly in place during cornering, while the rest of the cabin’s sporting style is enhanced with the high-gloss Piano Black veneer and Jet Suedecloth headlining available as an option on Premium Luxury and Portfolio Diesel S models.
New Colours Across the Range
Polaris White is a new colour for the MY11 XF range, replacing Porcelain. Red brake callipers are also available to order as a no cost option on XFR models and black mesh inserts for the grille also become standard on the XFR and Diesel S.
