Launched last year, the new second-generation Jaguar XF is the star of our latest walk-around video tour. Hailing all the way from Coventry, the executive sedan is offered in RM450,000 Prestige and RM460,000 R Sport trims – we’re giving you a closer look at the latter.

Compared to its German rivals, the XF is certainly pricey, so what do you get for the extra outlay? Well, first and foremost, the new model is lighter, more spacious, more powerful and more fuel efficient than its predecessor, which has been around since 2007.

Under the skin, it uses a predominantly aluminium modular platform shared with the smaller XE, as well as the F-Pace, Jaguar’s first SUV, making it up to 190 kg lighter than before. It’s also claimed to be as much as 80 kg lighter than its next competitor, which doesn’t seem at all insignificant. Power comes from a 2.0 litre turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder petrol engine developing 240 PS and 340 Nm of torque.
