Jaguar Refreshes XF Sedan for 2021, Trims Claws

Jaguar XF gets upgrades to infotainment, interior, and exterior. So pretty much everywhere

  • New styling, new interior, no new powertrains.

  • Jaguar looks to up the luxury with latest model.


The Jaguar XF is getting a host of upgrades for 2021 that includes updated styling with blade-like LED lights, reworked fender vents, and interior upgrades that include an all-new infotainment system floating elegantly in the dash and active noise cancellation to make this Jaguar’s purr a little bit quieter.

First up, we’ll address the elephant in the room. There’s no mention of the Sportbrake wagon in the US press release for the 2021 model, meaning that it’s likely gone from that market. The Sportbrake wasn’t offered in Canada in the first place, so we don’t think buyers will miss it.

Especially when they see the elegant new exterior Jaguar has given the XF for the new model year. Starting with ultra-slim LED headlights like those of the F-Type coupe, the XF gets a double-J blade lighting signature that blends into a mesh design grille with diamond detailing. Lower air intakes are larger and reshaped, and the fender vents have also been updated. At the back are new taillights and a new bumper and the C-pillar has been reshaped slightly.

Inside, the XF has gotten some material upgrades including open-pore wood veneers and aluminum trim accents as well as laser-etched speaker covers, all working to add a welcome dose of luxury to the car.

Sitting above the new cricket-stitch gear selector is a magnesium-framed Pivi Pro 11.4-inch touchscreen. Jaguar’s newest system adds a simplified menu system as well as smoother and more intuitive operation, the company says.

Making driver and passenger more comfy are wider cushions for the front seats as well as a larger heated and cooled area. New interior lighting encircles the front of the cabin and there is a new welcome sequence as you approach the vehicle.

Two engines are on offer, both with eight-speed automatics. The first is the P250, a 2.0L turbo-four with 246 hp. The P300 gets a 296-hp version of the same engine, and the 380-hp V6 seems to have been dropped from the line.
