Jaguar's updated-for-2012 XF sedan is now available in Australia, starting with the new 2.2 litre diesel engine announced earlier this year.

Among the revised XF's standout features is a new XJ-inspired front end, with sleeker headlights, a larger grille and a new bumper design.

The XF's bonnet and front bumper remain largely unchanged but for sharper vertical character lines in the bumper. At the rear end, there's lightly updated taillights and a stretched chrome treatment across the boot lid.

In the cabin, the 2012 XF picks up a new steering wheel and a restyled instrument panels, along with updated seats. On the entertainment front, a new 1200W Bowers & Wilkins sound system joins the options list.

Standard features for the entry-level 2.2 diesel XF include Bluetooth connectivity & audio streaming, Jaguar Smart Key System with keyless start, rain-sensing wipers, automatic climate control with air filtration and dual zone temperature control for driver and front passenger, auto on/off bi-xenon and LED daytime running lamps.

 

XF 2.2 Diesel

Priced at $78,900 (plus on-roads), the 2012 XF 2.2 diesel marks a new entry point into the XF line-up, undercutting the previous line-up's most affordable model, the 175kW XF 3.0 petrol, by $14,900. (Full pricing for the new range will come this Friday.)

The new variant's 2.2 litre diesel produces a healthy 140kW and 450Nm of torque. Combined with a new eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and stop/start technology, the small diesel lists fuel consumption figures of 5.4 l/100km.

Australian performance figures are still to be revealed, but Jaguar's earlier international release points to a 0-100km/h time of 8.5 seconds.

The new diesel is based on the 2.2 litre engine used by Ford and Land Rover, and features a water-cooled turbocharger, low-friction pistons, a new crankshaft and new injectors.

 

Pricing

  • Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel - $78,990
