Welcome to Raiacars.com, The next review about 2015 Jaguar XF 3.0 AWD Review from Jaguar cars. Let's see more specification, concept and review details for this cars below.
2015 Jaguar XF 3.0 AWD Review , This XF’s accelerative feats can partially be credited to the electronically controlled all-wheel-drive setup, which Jaguar markets as Instinctive All Wheel Drive. Capable of shuffling up to 50 percent of the available torque to the front wheels when conditions dictate, it can also preload torque on the front wheels to optimize traction when accelerating from a dead stop. Once underway, it transfers the bulk of the power back to the rear wheels for maximum acceleration. (Do that often, however, and you’ll end up with a low fuel-economy number like our 17-mpg figure. The car is rated for 17 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.)It’s easy to make friends with the XF’s brake pedal, a firm, honest device that flawlessly relays commands to the binders and operates with a short range of travel. Progressive and smooth around town, the brakes respond to deep presses in stride, our test driver noting zero fade on the way to posting a 70-to-0-mph stopping distance of 169 feet. That metric falls within spitting distance of the competition; for example, both the Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC and the Lexus GS350 AWD turned in 165-foot stops.All-wheel-drive sports sedans are a prerequisite for any manufacturer serious about racking up sales in markets where the weather can get frightful. Jaguar learned this the hard way in places like the American Northeast, where BMW’s xDrive, Mercedes-Benz’s 4MATIC, and Audi’s Quattro AWD systems rendered the British brand’s products all but invisible.That’s not to say that Jaguar is all of a sudden more than a bit player in comparison to the Teutonic trio, but its sales veritably exploded when it fast-tracked and retrofitted an all-wheel-drive system to the XF and XJ luxury sedans. And sports-car fans take note: Jaguar recently announced certain variants of the 2016 F-type would be available with AWD, too.
