Jaguar needed a fresh new look for its XF model, more exactly for the 2021 version of the saloon. The 2021 XF will be offered in three configurations with both rear- and all-wheel drive, featuring more standard luxury and convenience than before: XF P250 S RWD, P250 SE RWD, and P300 R-DYNAMIC SE AWD.
Building on a storied heritage of Jaguar sedans with beautiful, driver-focused interior compartments, the 2021 XF features a spacious, dramatically styled cockpit. Its interior design language utilizes soft forms and premium, authentic finishes. Contrasting use of color at eye-level and in lower cabin finishes immerse the interior in one tone to enhance the sense of space. The overall feeling inside the cabin of XF is the heightened attention to detail.
At the heart of the new interior is the centrally mounted, 11.4-inch HD touchscreen.6 The elegant curvature of the screen was designed to seamlessly follow the same profile as the instrument panel. The glass screen is housed in a magnesium frame painted in tonal black satin, to accentuate the slim profile and deliver a high-quality and durable finish. The large touchscreen operates the new, intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment system, which introduces a simplified menu structure.1 The seamless integration of new technology is integral to Jaguar’s new design DNA.
The premium feel inside the XF is heightened through authentic finishes, including open-pore wood veneers and aluminum, which feature in interior accents front and rear, as well as along the full-width ‘Piano lid’ across the width of the instrument panel. The extensive use of these materials reinvigorates Jaguar’s rich lineage of luxury interiors, a nod to the past in a vision for the future. Laser-etched speaker frets, specially designed to meet both acoustic and visual requirements, are finished in brushed metal which is then lacquered. Even the center console, framed by dramatic, profiled metallic blades on either side, was reimagined with a faster profile that sweeps up to the instrument panel.
Standard interior color choices include Ebony, Light Oyster and Caraway. New front seats offer wider cushioning plus larger heated and cooling areas for enhanced comfort. An embossed Jaguar Leaper on the headrests complements ‘Est.1935 Jaguar Coventry’ upholstery tags that reference the rich history of the brand.
XF P300 R-DYNAMIC SE AWD offers a more dynamic appearance throughout the cabin. R-DYNAMIC sports seats with contrast stitch are offered in Ebony, Light Oyster, Mars Red and Siena Tan. An Ebony headliner, unique treadplates and rich accent colors enhance the cabin further.
Equally as transformed as the interior design of the 2021 XF is its exterior design. Taking inspiration from the F-TYPE sports car, XF features ultra-slim, all-LED quad headlights with “Double J Blade” daytime running light signatures.
Seven wheel designs are available, including a new 19-inch, five-spoke 5106 Elegance in both Silver and Gloss Black. Rounding off the new designs is the 20-inch 5107 Delta wheel, available in Satin Black with Gloss Black inserts.
XF P300 R-DYNAMIC SE AWD adds a series of distinct design elements for a more performance-focused look, including a distinctive, Gloss Black finish for the lower front air intakes and lower front bumper. The grille tips are also finished in Shadow Atlas while the upper rear valance is finished in Gloss Black, rather than body color, creating greater visual separation.
