Bringing the ultimate driving and passenger experience, extensive luxury amenities include a rear seat entertainment system and cabin air ionisation technology. Tailored for young business elites in China, the car comes with a host of Jaguar’s latest technologies, including the industry-leading Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, segment-first Clear Exit Detection, and All Surface Progress Control (ASPC). These features have improved the car’s all-weather capabilities and helped it set a new standard for premium models.

With such strengths, the all-new Jaguar XFL breaks into the established market portfolio that has been dominated by three powerful German brands, and will form a new market pattern: ABB+J. Offering consumers a valuable, luxurious British experience, the model with a starting MSRP of RMB 388,000 will go on sale on the 12th September.

This year, the F-PACE, Jaguar’s first ever performance SUV, will be displayed for the first time at the Chengdu Motor Show. Official photos and videos of the vehicle were released at the Motor Show last year and ever since it went on sale in May of this year, the F-PACE has been well received by both customers and the market. Chinese media guests who attended the F-PACE ride and drive at the end of June 2016 in Guangzhou were also impressed. They all praised the vehicle’s highly captivating exterior design and unparalleled dynamism, in particular, the 2.0-litre variant of the car which utilises All Surface Progress Control, delivering great dynamic capability.

For a limited period, F-Pace is available with a choice of attractive customer finance, five years maintenance package or loyalty trade in incentives from dealers across the country.

In addition to the all-new XFL and F-PACE, all other vehicles from all aluminium Jaguar’s family will also appear at the Motor Show, fully expressing the “Art of Performance” philosophy.
