As a result of its exterior facelift and some welcome interior updates, reviewers say that the 2012 Jaguar XF improves on an already competitive model. Features such as the red, pulsating start button and stainless steel shift dial that rises from the center console remain, but the big interior updates include more-supportive front seats, a color information display in the gauge cluster and additional buttons which ease use of the XF’s touch screen interface.

Sheetmetal revisions to the grille, bonnet and front wings incorporating new triangular side vents give the car a more muscular, purposeful appearance. The range topping XFR receives its own unique, overtly assertive design to underline its performance potential while an alternative ‘Aerodynamic’ option is available on all other derivatives for a total of three dramatically different styling options. The headlamps now incorporate bi function HID xenon technology that allows them to be much slimmer and more compact while still providing outstanding beam resolution. They also incorporate LED daytime running lights arranged in a distinctive Jaguar ‘J-Blade’ signature pattern for instant recognition.

Jaguar XF 2012 Interior :
Jaguar XF 2012 Interior. – A central touch screen controls audio and HVAC functions, including heated seats and steering wheel (if equipped). While reviewers find the XF’s system intuitive, a few note that you often have to work through the on-screen menus to access different functions, which can be time-consuming. For 2012, the system is slightly improved, as more buttons have been added to the XF’s dash, which serve as an alternative to accessing some vehicle functions. The system still earns points for ease of use, but some shoppers may prefer the control knob interfaces found on systems in the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

However, interior tech is still an area of great value in the XF, which comes standard with navigation, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Navigation is part of an option package that costs upwards of $4,000 on the E-Class. And if you go for a V8-equipped Mercedes E550, the sticker price will be nearly $10,000 more than the Jag after you add navigation.

For 2012, the interior and exterior get a good going-over. Exterior enhancements were predicted by the CXF concept that appeared just prior to the production launch, and they leverage technology that now makes some of that concept’s styling cues production feasible. Examples include the LED daytime running lamp treatment (which has come to be expected on cars in the class), and the “Tron” look light blade taillamp illumination that now extends onto the decklid.

Jaguar XF 2012 Exterior :
Jaguar XF 2012 Exterior. – The exterior of the 2012 XF features a revised grille, hood, and front fenders, which incorporates new triangular side vents. The supercharged version gets louvers featuring the “supercharged” script, while the headlamps now incorporate bi-function HID xenon technology. The LED daytime running lights are arranged in a distinctive Jaguar ‘J-Blade’ signature.

At the rear, the XF also gets redesigned tail lamps that extend onto the central portion of the trunk lid and a redesigned trunk lid trim with a gloss black lower edge for a cleaner appearance. For 2012, Jaguar will offer the XF in three new exterior colors with a new set of alloy wheels size 18″ to 20″.

Key among the enhancements to Jaguar XF is the introduction of the 2.2-litre AJ-i4D turbodiesel engine. The unit features low friction pistons and a water cooled turbocharger to increase efficiency plus active engine mounts and modifications to the sump and block to reduce NVH levels. The result is not only Jaguar’s most fuel efficient engine ever, but one which offers levels of refinement on a par with the previously fitted 2.7-litre V6 diesel and all the performance expected of a Jaguar sports saloon. Further refinement is assured on all models by the use of additional acoustic shielding and the use of computational fluid dynamics to smooth exterior airflow.

Jaguar XF 2012 Engine :
Jaguar XF 2012 Engine. – Jaguar will be offering a number of engine options for the new XF, including a choice of three diesel powertrains and two petrol versions. For the diesel, you can opt for a 2.2-liter, four cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 187 horsepower and 332 lb/ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 142 mph. More powerful than that is the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine with 237 horsepower and 368 lb/ft of torque, good enough for a 0-62 mph time of 7.1 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph. Then there’s the 3.0-liter V6 twin turbocharged engine that produces 275 horsepower and 442 lb/ft of torque, which translates to a 0-62 mph time of 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.

The EPA has yet to provide fuel economy estimates for the 2012 Jaguar XF, but 2011 models didn’t see much of a penalty for additional super charged power. The EPA reports that normally aspirated V8 models get 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, while the XF Supercharged gets 15/21 mpg city/highway fuel economy. While these figures are low compared to some luxury large cars, they are about average among V8-powered rivals. The similar 2011 BMW 550i gets 17/25 mpg city/highway with its automatic transmission, while the 2011 Mercedes-Benz E550 gets 15/23 mpg city/highway.
