With a delightful blend of refinement, performance and design, along with the latest in technologies that keep you connected and entertained, the 2017 Jaguar XF is an incredible choice for a midsize luxury sport sedan. The new XF also offers impressive all-weather performance with its available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.  

2017 Jaguar XF: Instinctive All-Wheel-Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD)

Available with all XF engines is the Instinctive All-Wheel-Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD). The unique IDD software features sophisticated algorithms designed to react intelligently to road conditions. Operating both proactively and reactively, the system helps prevent you from losing traction instead of working to regain it. On XF S AWD, the Adaptive Surface Response system can work at all engine speeds, automatically recognizing differences between surfaces to exploit the maximum available grip.

Jaguar XF All Surface Progress Control

The 2017 XF comes standard with All Surface Progress Control (ASPC), which gives drivers added confidence on slippery surfaces. ASPC works like a low-speed cruise control and uses the brakes in opposition to the throttle so that only very low engine torque is applied to the driven wheels. The result is controlled progress with little or no wheelspin. All the driver has to do is steer.

Jaguar XF Low Friction Launch

Further enhancing the 2017 XF’s all-weather performance is the available Low Friction Launch function, which is designed for drivers who want to make the most of the vehicle’s traction while operating the throttle themselves. Once activated via the touchscreen, it changes the throttle map so there’s a very progressive response from the engine, enabling the driver to pull away smoothly on low-friction surfaces such as ice or wet grass.
