New Breed Of Jaguar C-XF

More than just a show stopper, the concept embodies the look of Jaguar’s future sedans. The new design starts in front with a deeply recessed grille filled in with menacing black chrome mesh and a large centrally inset logo. This most likely means no more Jaguar ornaments leaping off the hood. Designers wanted C-XF to look as if it was milled from a solid piece of metal.

The big rectangular face also serving as an air intake is a drastic departure from the oval designs typical of Jaguar sedans. Also new up front is the slim cat’s-eye enclosure around the normally exposed circular twin-beam headlamps.

The interior blends brushed aluminum, wood, leather, and ambient lighting effects. Running between the seats, a tall central transmission tunnel gives passengers a sense of being enclosed within a cockpit, rather than just sitting in a car. Instead of the typical glossy burl veneers, areas of the doors and the transmission tunnel have been carved from poplar that was scorched to obtain a rich satin feel. The leather, which has no visible stitching, has a unique carbon fiber weave that speaks to C-XF’s performance attributes. Interior designer Alister Whelan says the unusual interior finishes allow for new ideas and themes to be explored.

    I had high expectations from Ian Calum and Jaguar. I can’t express in any language how disappointed with this dismal crossbreeding of a Chrysler 300 and Monte Carlo I am. It looks like a 70s Maserati, and that’s not saying much… as if the new XK wasn’t bad enough. Every time I see that thing it makes me realize how good the old one actually looks. This has to be the Grossest case of jaded design the auto industry has seen in thirty years. I saw where someone said this was the car Jaguar should have built fifteen years ago. Yeah? well it looks as if they DESIGNED it fifteen years ago. Mr. Calum should be bagging groceries for this atrocity. He will go down in history as the man who single handedly put down the great Jaguar.

    She's gorgeous. That big rectangular face also serving as an air intake can be mistaken as a design but it adds to its beauty. The interior and the auto parts leaves you speechless.

    Well today we can now see the true nature of Jaguars concept of the XF model. Tata have taken the cat to a new level of luxury. Auto express say that rate as a top five in their customer satisfaction surveys. Major player in the sports car and luxury car market. You need to test drive one of these to really understand how this new design impacts on driving experience and leisure.
