Jaguar XF Launched in Malaysia
Rather than its older versions where the rooflines are lower and somewhat awkward, the XF looks more like a coupe than any other versions. The entry level in the country, which is the 3.0 liter V6 version produces about 240 horsepower and 293Nm torque. It is capable of 80% peak torque all the way from below 1,500rpm up until where the engine revs around 6,800rpm. Acceleration wise, it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in around 8.3 seconds.
The higher version, the 4.2 liter engines can produce 300 horsepowers and 411Nm of torque where 0-100 km/h takes 6.5 seconds, while the top of the range produces 420 horsepowers and 560Nm of torque taking only 5.4 seconds from 0-100km/h. All versions come standard fitted with the ZF 6 speed quick shift gearbox.
The car starts with the red start button, and from there the JaguarDrive selected will ascend to meet the driver’s palm while the display instrumental panel shows the startup sequence and the air conditioning vents activates into open mode. There are diving aids available with the car, like cornering brake control, EBD, ABS, understeer control logic and the dual-mode DSC.
Upon ordering the car, one is able to customize the interiors to a certain extend, which includes the seat options, upper interior trim colors and the variations of wood. Xenon headlamps are available standard with the V8 model while the other lower end versions come fitted with halogen headlamps.
