Jaguar gives XF saloon more grip with 4WD

Jaguar claims 4WD will maintain XF’s agility, even in wet and slippery conditions

Jaguar has introduced a four-wheel-drive option on its new XF saloon. Available to order now with the 178bhp 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel and automatic gearbox, it is the first time Jaguar has offered AWD with a four-cylinder engine.

The system features Jaguar's Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD), which was first seen in the F-Type AWD. It can shuffle power to the front wheels when slip is detected to maximise the performance of the car. Jaguar claims the system helps preserve the XF’s agility.

It also adds an ‘adaptive surface response’ mode to the Drive Control system to help in wet conditions, which Jaguar is promising will result in superb composure even in the most adverse weather conditions.

Prices start from £36,350 with deliveries expected in the spring. At the same time, the 178bhp diesel manual XF can now be specified with Adaptive Dynamics continuously variable dampers.
