Jaguar XF R-Sport Combines Luxury and Performance

Jaguar just revealed the R-Sport trim for its XF sedan before its official debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.

The XF R-Sport is purely an aesthetic package, similar to BMW’s M aero kits and Audi’s S-Line options and adds some of the sporty appearance from the XFR and XFR-S models while retaining the more economical engine and a lower price. Featured on the XF R-Sport is a new front bumper, side skirts, rear spoiler, 17-inch wheels and R-Sport badging.

On the inside, the package features suede seats with Dove contrast stitching. Red or tan contrast stitching are also available. The R-Sport is available on both the sedan and wagon variants and is also available with the optional Black styling package. Currently, the package is being offered on the European market XF with a 2.2-liter turbo diesel that makes 161 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. That car – and the R-Sport trim – are specific to that market for now, although Jaguar hasn’t ruled out bringing the cosmetic components to cars in North America at a later date.
