The 2012 Jaguar XF seen in the above spy shot may not look too different from the existing car, but the improvements you can’t see are what caught our attention.

Jaguar claims that this XF is motivated by a 2.2L 4-cylinder diesel engine making 187 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque, while delivering about 52 mpg on the European cycle. This works out to roughly 40 mpg combined in North American measurements, and a start-stop system, as well as low friction engine components, are credited with helping the big cat reach the vaunted 40 mpg target while also hitting 60 mph in 8.5 seconds.

Jaguar will announce more details, including an on-sale date, at the New York Auto Show, so stay tuned to AutoGuide’s live coverage of the show for further information.
