The 2016 Beijing Motor Show is in full swing at the moment, with exciting news about new vehicles emerging from China since this morning. We’ve already had a glimpse at some of Audi’s latest cars, the new BAIC Arcfox-7 was unveiled and now the new long-wheelbase version of the Jaguar XFL has made its debut.


The China-only saloon is aimed at the Chinese market, which is renowned for its fascination with luxury vehicles.

Although at its core, the Jaguar XFL remains true to its predecessor, the long-wheelbase saloon is 140mm longer than the standard XFL. This extends the car’s rear leg room by as much as 157mm.

This is great news for Chinese customers, looking for something luxurious, elegant and comfortable. A lot of vehicles advertised as “luxury cars” often lack the space that many people are after. If you’re paying a lot of money for car you expect it to be spacious and comfortable, which is exactly what you are getting with the XFL.

According to the brand, the car was designed specifically for chauffeur-driven buyers, with great attention being placed on entertainment and comfort rather than the driving experience itself.

Two 8inch screens allow the passengers to browse the web, watch films or even work whilst on the road. A staggering 17 speakers can be found within the vehicle as part of the car’s Meridian Surround Sound System.

Heated seats, folding tables, massage functions and window blinds are among the many features the new XFL offers.

Since the vehicle is aimed at a Chinese market, it will likely never be sold in Europe. It’s not clear at the moment how much the vehicle will cost, however knowing the Chinese market, it’s likely going to do well when it goes on sale.

Chinese customers are known for their love of luxury cars, so something this luxurious is guaranteed to have a successful production run.

Scheduled to go into production at firm’s Chery Jaguar Land Rover plant located in Changshu, the car will go on sale in the near future.
