    • When the system determines that slip may occur, it pre-emptively transfers more than 90% of engine torque from the rear wheels to the front wheels.

      “AWD GRIPS THE SURFACE WHETHER YOU’RE ACCELERATING FROM A STANDSTILL, OR SCYTHING OVER A DESERTED ROAD.”

      It’s a potent combination, bringing added composure to our renowned agility, without diluting driver enjoyment and deploying its power effortlessly.

      The XF builds on the XE formula, with the same AWD system, a driving experience that can thrill and cosset in equal measure, and with added space and luxury. The efficient 2.0L diesel is a 180-horsepower engine that’s punchy and pulls keenly from subterranean revs.

      Again you’re barely aware of its AWD interventions - just sense that you can press the accelerator further and earlier in a bend. It not only feels sure-footed in varying conditions, it gives you more confidence whatever the weather. Like the XE, the AWD remains 90% RWD in normal conditions. But the IDD system is something rivals simply can’t match: it is designed to detect when you’re about to lose traction when driving, and pre-emptively prepares to divert more traction forwards, which is helpful on fast switchback roads. It also cuts the 0-100km/h time on most models making accelerating onto a busy road quicker because all four tires share the load.

      “YOU’RE BARELY AWARE OF THE CAR’S ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE INTERVENTIONS - JUST SENSE THAT YOU CAN PRESS THE ACCELERATOR FURTHER AND EARLIER.”

      The latest addition to the Jaguar range, the F-PACE, represents new territory for the company. But it’s built around the same aluminum building blocks and AWD system as XE and XF, and Jaguar essence shines through in both the striking design and the drive.

      Despite having a commanding view of the road ahead, you sit relatively low in the cockpit, gripping a steering wheel that’s small and wieldy. The front tires flick into corners with sports-car-like precision, the steering is highly responsive and beautifully weighted, and all the while the suspension balances handling finesse with supple comfort. Room in the back is great and the cargo space is huge, flexible and highly accessible from the large rear tailgate.
