My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Jaguar will celebrate a decade of XF saloon production as it takes the wraps off the XF Sportbrake, its new lifestyle estate.
The new Sportbrake comes hot on the heels of a range of updates to the XF model. Earlier this year Jaguar Land Rover’s latest Ingenium engines were introduced to deliver improved efficiency, lower running costs and enhanced performance. Updates included the new 200PS and 250PS Ingenium petrol engines, as well as new convenience and safety features.
In 2016 the XF won the coveted Golden Steering Wheel – Germany’s top car award – being voted ‘Best Saloon’ in the Mid-Full-size category ahead of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Volvo S90.
Last year also witnessed the introduction of the long-wheelbase model in China, with enhanced rear comfort and Clear Exit Detection technology to warn passengers of passing traffic when exiting the vehicle.
The XF is manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover's Castle Bromwich Plant alongside the XE, XJ and F-TYPE model lines.
