In January this year, the 2012 Jaguar XF facelift was launched in Malaysia. It is available in three variants: the XF 3.0 V6 priced at RM 488,888, the XF 3.0 V6 diesel S at RM 509,888, and the XFR 5.0 V8 Supercharged at RM 888,888 (OTR excluding road tax and insurance). Despite the new face and interior upgrades, the pricing remained the same.
For folks that want a performance oriented version of the Jaguar XF? The Jaguar XFR will be one of your great choices. This new British luxury muscle sedan is made to rival against commendable models like Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, BMW M5 and Cadillac CTS-V. With a luxuriously made interior and balanced handling, Jaguar XFR is one of the top super saloons available in the market.
Jaguar XFR sheds a brawny look when compared to other previous models. One of the aspects that differentiate Jaguar XFR from other models is an aggressive looking front outlook along with larger air intake; 20 inches alloy wheels which cover huge cross-drilled rotors as well as full ridges, well-designed hood exhausts or vents, and the unobtrusive rear spoiler. Inside, the XFR has some parts made of dark wood, has special dials, comfortable yet heavily reinforced sports seats which are still elegant and classy. Not only does XFR boast a strong façade but also a powerful mechanical interior like its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine which is able to drive out a good 510 horsepower and a maximum of 461 lb ft torque. These alone are enough to hurtle Jaguar XFR from 0-60 mph (close to 0-100km/h) in just 4.7 seconds. Its powerful V8 engine is secured well to a six speed ZF automatic transmission which allows XFR to quickly but smoothly shift. Paddle shifts also allow manual control giving the XFR an edge over other models. The XFR is also equipped with a smart system called active differential system which has the ability to apportion the supplied power to the wheels giving an optimize traction as well as the ability to detect wheel slippage. Fuel- wise, the XFR is evaluated with 21 mpg on highways and 15 mpg in the cities.
