2016 Jaguar XF To Feature iQ Platform, Ingenium Engines
Jaguar’s next-generation mid-size luxury sedan XF, which awaits
a global launch at the New York Auto Show next month, was spotted testing at
the Canary Islands, off the Moroccan coast in mid-Atlantic. It is under extensive post-production tests in various countries. Though the test

fuel engines are said to be fuel efficient and low in Co2 emissions. A V6
supercharged petrol and an even bigger 5.0-liter supercharged V8 will also be offered
in this second-generation XF as before.

auto shows this year.
