The XF R-Dynamic Black, Jaguar says, benefits from several key features, designed to give it an even more purposeful presence. The most distinguishable additions to the exterior come in the shape of the Black pack, which comprise gloss black finish for, among others, the front grille, door mirror caps and air vents. The same hue has been applied to the R-Dynamic Black’s 19-inch alloy wheels, which house a set of red brake callipers.

The interior features Satin Charcoal Ash veneer finishes. Bright metal pedals add to this XF’s sporty persona. Cabin ambience is enhanced thanks to the fitment of Jaguar’s Premium Cabin Lighting feature, which offers a choice of 30 colour options, and a standard-fitment panoramic sunroof.

According to Jaguar, the XF’s Pivi Pro infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and Spotify, is now better than ever. Wireless smartphone charging can be specified.
