The 2016 Jaguar XF is the second generation iteration of the four-door luxury XF sedan, and was unveiled at the 2015 New York International Auto Show.

The 2016 Jaguar XF comes with both rear and all-wheel drive and is highly aerodynamic thanks to front bumper vents that distribute air over the front wheels. Meanwhile, the front end is designed to improve airflow and shorten overhang.

The real highlight of this car however is its aluminum construction, which results in weight savings of 265 pounds compared to the previous Jaguar XF model. The car was built using a two-stage framing process wherein aluminum-intensive construction was combined with advanced high-strength steel and magnesium alloys.

Whereas people once valued cars that were heavy and bulky, the modern motorist is always up for some weight savings and the 2016 Jaguar XF offers just that without compromising on performance.
