“To coincide with the launch of the 12MY range Jaguar Australia has taken the opportunity to redesign the specification and pricing to ensure spec and feature impress consumers as much as the redesigns seen on the product and of course, to catch the attention of customers who may now consider Jaguar as purchase proposition for the first time.” Said Kevin Goult, Jaguar Australia’s Brand Manager.

With the new Bi-function HID Xenon headlamps, the 2012 Jaguar XF now looks more like the CXF concept car freshening the look of the vehicle and bringing the vehicle into line with the looks of XJ flagship model.
Goult Continues “Jaguar XF has always been a good looking vehicle, but now, we’re stunning… The new look should and will entice customers away from our competitors and why wouldn’t it with a starting price of $78,900 and impressive fuel consumption figures”
