Jaguar updates XF saloon and Sportbrake for 2019

► 2019 Jaguar XF updates
► New smartphone tech
► Plus Chequered Flag edition

Jaguar has announced updates for its XF saloon and Sportbrake estate for the 2019 model year.

The updates to the car in general are pretty minor – from now on, every XF model comes with a new Smartphone Pack that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the InControl Pro infotainment system – something some may be happy about if they wish to ignore Jag’s sometimes-clunky interface.

The main focus is on the new Chequered Flag special edition. It’s available with five of the XF’s engines and can be had in either rear- or all-wheel drive, but the main differences are only skin deep.

There are some unique badges, plus the Black Pack, a boot spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels. Navigation Pro and Connect Pro for the infotainment system are included too, which adds real-time traffic info, as is digital dials and keyless entry.

Prices start at £34,950 for the saloon and £37,390 for the estate, available now.
