After teasing it through a single image showing the car’s taillight, Jaguar has officially revealed the XFL at the ongoing Beijing Motor Show. This new model is the long-wheelbase version of the regular car that is sold globally.
The XFL has been designed only for China. It is 140mm longer than the regular XF and comes with lots of tech to keep the rear occupants both comfortable and occupied. Jaguar is offering its latest InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, two 8-inch screens and wireless headphones for rear seat entertainment. Adding more comfort to the rear are the heated and cooled seats with massage function and window blinds.
The added length has resulted in the XFL weighing around 200kg more than the regular model. That said, performance will be more than enough from the choice of petrol engines that Jaguar is offering for this car. There’s a 2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine in two different state of tunes - 197bhp and 236bhp, or a 335bhp supercharged 3-litre V6 unit. All engine options use a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The XFL will be the third locally assembled JLR model in China, after the Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The former is underpinned by the same aluminium-intensive platform found in the F-Pace and the XE.
