Here’s your first look at the 2020 Jaguar XF Sportbrake facelift.
We already know the Jaguar F-Pace is getting a facelift soon, and now our spies have confirmed the XF will be getting the same treatment. The second-generation XF has been on sale since 2015, so the time seems right for an update to help it compete with the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes E-Class.
Earlier this year, the XE was given a facelift for the 2020 model year with F-Type-inspired styling changes, and it appears its XF sibling will be receiving similar changes. Our spies have caught a prototype of the facelifted XF Sportbrake undergoing testing, but the same changes should also be applied to the XF sedan.
The refreshed wagon is covered up in camouflage, but we can still see design changes such as sharper headlights, a new front bumper and a reshaped grille. At the back, the bumper and the rear lights will be updated with a new design.
We don't have any photos of the cabin but expect the interior to get some significant upgrades. Like its XE sibling, the facelifted XF is expected to feature higher-quality interior materials and more advanced tech. Inside the XE, soft-touch materials give the cabin a more premium look and improve the comfort, while an all-new door design improves the sedan's practicality. The updated XF should also adopt features from the I-Pace, including a new steering wheel, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and Jaguar's dual touch screen InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system.
Powertrain options for the 2020 Jaguar XF haven't been confirmed, but the current model is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo inline-4 gasoline engine that produces 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, while the range-topping S version has a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque on tap.
The 2020 Jaguar XF is expected to debut before the end of the year before the updated F-Pace arrives early next year.
