Jaguar Philippines has updates its local lineup with the launch of the new 2021 Jaguar XF and 2021 Jaguar F-PACE into the local market.
While most of mechanical elements and the general body remain, Jaguar has equipped the XF and F-PACE with enhanced exteriors, updated crafted interiors, and the latest connectivity features the brand has to offer.
2021 Jaguar XF
The 2021 Jaguar XF presents a wider front bumper, a new grille, and new slim all-LED quad headlights with ‘Double J’ daytime running lights upfront. The grille gets a mesh design that’s inspired by Jaguar’s heritage logo.
At the rear, the 2021 XF also gets a new and wider bumper. The taillights have also been darkened for a more sophisticated stance.
Side profiles also get an update with the addition of the brand’s iconic Leaper emblem.
Inside, the 2021 XF receives heightened refinement and improved connectivity. The new center console sweeps up to the dashboard that incorporates a wireless device charger. In the middle is an 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen, which controls the new Pivi Pro infotainment system.
Finished with ‘cricket-ball’ stitching is the new Drive Selector.
The touchscreen of the latest Pivi Pro infotainment system is three times brighter and 48 percent larger than the previous screen on the XF. The menu structures have also been simplified for better access and view for the driver. The new 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout promises to make driving more seamless. For entertainment, both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now come as standard.
Cabin noise levels are managed by the Active Road Noise Cancellation technology for an extra touch of luxury and refinement.
The 2021 Jaguar XF also features a full camera system that gives the driver both 3D and 360-degree views around the vehicle. The system is able to display several views simultaneously on the screen — including 3D perspectives, junction view, and ClearSight Plan View with dynamic Parking Aid overlays.
The Meridian sound system has been updated with two additional center channel speakers, giving the cabin a total of 12 speakers and one subwoofer.
The 2021 Jaguar XF is now available with a price tag of P4,590,000.
2021 Jaguar F-PACE
Excluding the new hood, slimmer taillights, sleeker rear, and a larger grille with Jaguar-inspired ‘diamond’ detailing, the 2021 Jaguar F-PACE generally gets similar exterior and interior updates as its sedan sibling. The slimmer taillights are particularly reminiscent of those on the I-PACE.
The highlight on the 2021 F-PACE is that it’s now available as a four-cylinder in-line diesel with Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology. The move comes after the local launch of the Range Rover PHEV last year as the brand continues to move forward with more sustainable technology for its vehicles. All F-PACE models get all-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The MHEV technology uses a Belt integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) to collect energy when slowing and braking. This energy is then stored in a separate 48V lithium-ion battery before redeployment to assist the diesel engine in acceleration.
Jaguar’s commitment to create stronger, lighter, and more sustainable vehicles continues with the 2021 F-PACE. It is now available with a price of P5,590,000.
