General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Jaguar XF (2014)
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.
2.Has rear-wheel drive
Jaguar XF (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
3.Has fully independent suspension
Jaguar XF (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Jaguar XF (2014)
A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
5.turn radius

11.5m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
6.CO2 emissions

189g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

Dimensions

1.cargo volume

500l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
2.maximum headroom (front)

991mm

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
3.height

1.47m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.maximum trailer weight

1.85t

The maximum weight of a trailer that can be towed by the vehicle.
5.maximum headroom (rear)

956mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
6.length

4.96m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.

Speed

1.top speed

240km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

7.9s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

15.6l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
2.maximum torque

340Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
3.fuel economy (highway)

8.6l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.horsepower

240hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Jaguar XF (2014)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
6.fuel tank capacity

70l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Jaguar XF (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
2.Has in-car system
Jaguar XF (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
3.Has smart key as standard
Jaguar XF (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
4.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Jaguar XF (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
5.number of airbags

6

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
6.screen size (in-car system)

178"

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience and is easier to use while driving.
