Jaguar has announced the arrival of the facelifted XF in Singapore, with the updated version of Jaguar’s mid-sized executive sedan featuring revised looks and an updated interior to keep it competitive against its rivals.

The XF was launched alongside the updated F-Pace SVR at a virtual event on 16 September, and the refreshed version of Jaguar’s E-Class and 5 Series competitor gets some slight upgrades inside and out. Just one version is on the price list, with the XF 2.0-litre with 250hp going for S$268,888 inclusive of COE.

On the outside, the main noticeable changes on the XF is the bigger grille, which dominates the front end, and necessitates a redesigned front bumper. The LED headlights are also new, and feature distinctive ‘double J’ signatures. The rear remains relatively unchanged, but the bumper now incorporates a body-coloured upper valance, while there are also now darkened rear light surrounds.

The interior of the XF has also been lightly revised, with the main improvements being the use of materials, as well as the updated infotainment system. The 11.4-inch central touchscreen now houses Jaguar’s latest Pivi Pro operating system, which is claimed to be faster and more responsive than before, while being simpler and more intuitive to use. It also allows for over-the-air software updates for the vehicle and infotainment systems.

As mentioned earlier, the XF is available with a 2.0-litre engine that produces 250hp and 365Nm of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission allowing the car to go from 0-100km/h in 6.9 seconds. There is an all-wheel-drive version of this variant, as well as a more powerful 300hp 2.0-litre version, but both are available in Singapore on an indent basis only.
