How is the design of Jaguar XF
As the Jaguar XF is a luxury car, all trim levels come with top of the line accessories and designs. Standard accessories in all cabins of the Jaguar XF include; a sunroof, heated power front seats, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and an iPod interface, and optional features are; full leather – trimmed interior and cooled seats. Focusing more on detailing, the cabin of the Jaguar XF delivers a luxurious feel, with trimming in soft leather and tasteful wood trim which gives the cabin a pleasingly modern design.
Exterior design of the Jaguar XF has similar traits with the previous Jaguar models, but takes a hint from the modern day design of vehicles with its sedan style which has been merged with a coupe like roof line. On both generations of the Jaguar XF, a mesh grille gives it that exquisite front end design along with the Jaguar logo which is mounted in its centre. The body structure is sleek and sublime which makes the vehicle glide through the roads. The rear design of the Jaguar XF still retained the Jaguar S-Type’s chromed blade, but included a new “leaper” jaguar logo to the mix.
What are the best features of the Jaguar XF?
The aerodynamics of the Jaguar XF would be what stands out the most on the vehicle. Using Computational fluid Dynamics (CFD) which replicates the true nature of a wind tunnel, the body of the Jaguar XF was developed with this technology. This ensures that every area of the vehicle from its outer skin to the inside and underneath of the vehicle and the shape of the exterior mirrors is lightweight. Through the CFD, it optimises every aspect of the vehicle, with in turn will determine which shape or density the vehicle has to take to ensure it is fluid and light on its feet.
Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Jaguar XF in Nigeria
Asides from purchasing brand new units of the Jaguar XF from authorised dealers, a good number of Nigerians rely on independent vehicle dealers for used units of the Jaguar XF. These used Jaguar XF are of two types; the foreign used or “Tokunbo” units and the Nigerian used or “Registered” options. The Tokunbo Jaguar XF vehicles are the more preferred option, as they present a near “brand new” performance. The Nig used Jaguar XF vehicles also have good performance, and are a lot cheaper than the tokunbo ones. In any case, a trusted automobile mechanic should assist in verifying that the vehicle is in a good road useable condition with minimal faults.
