Jaguar XFL Takes Aim At Mercedes-Benz E-Class In China
|   Thursday, May 19, 2016
The fact that you own a car with a driver is a status symbol, widely praised by Chinese customers. The Chinese place a high value on space for rear passengers and comfort in general. However, due to the fact that in China the fees for imported luxury goods are high, the solution is going for models in lower segments but which have a long wheelbase, just to play the role of a limousine.

For these reasons Jaguar has presented at the auto show in Beijing the XFL model which represents the long version of the high class sedan XF.
In the case of the XFL, the rear seat passengers enjoy more comfort. Leg room has increased by 157 mm while knee space is more generous by some 116 mm. This extra space has been obtained by lengthening the wheelbase by 140 mm compared with the standard XF, so that it now measures 3,100 mm. By comparison, the Jaguar XJ sedan has standard wheelbase of 3,032 mm or 3,157 mm in the long version.

Jaguar XFL is distinguished by the rich list of the comfort, connectivity and security systems. The relaxed and relaxing atmosphere in the cockpit is due to the panoramic roof, climate control system with 4 zones, and air purification technology through ionization. The rear seats have massage functions, are 4-way adjustable for lumbar support, as well as having heating and cooling functions. Also, the blinds on the side windows are electrically operated.

A useful and unique feature is the Clear Exit Detection system, which warns the rear seat passengers if another vehicle is approaching when they are about to open the doors.

Jaguar XFL is very gifted in terms of safety as you could see. It also has an automatic braking system, if it detects the possibility of a collision and the driver does not intervene, a support system for keeping the lane, with automatic steering correction, sensors to detect vehicles that pass behind XFL during reverse maneuvering, assist system for parking maneuvers, adaptive cruise control (Queue Assist function that automatically keeps the distance from the car in front and can brake too in case the car in front stops too).

On top of that, add the head-up display system with laser projection, full LED technology headlamps, and All Surface Progress Control traction control system.
The XFL is offered with petrol engines. You can choose between a turbo engine with a displacement of 2 liters, available in variants with 200 and 240 hp, and a V6 engine with a displacement of 3 liters with compressor which develops 340 hp.

The Jaguar XFL is the first model of the British brand product in China. It will be built at the new production section of aluminum bodyworks at the Chery Jaguar Land Rover factory in Changshu. This factory in Changshu was inaugurated in 2014 and is the result of joint investments made by Jaguar Land Rover and Chery Automobile Limited on the basis of a joint venture established in 2012 between the two companies.
The sale of the Jaguar XFL in China will start in the second half of this year.
