Jaguar has added a new trim level to its XF midsize saloon. These new R-Dynamic Black models include the kind of design upgrades that the name implies, as well as a few infotainment upgrades. To that end, Jaguar XF models will soon be equipped with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via an over-the-air software update.
German automakers have dominated the current sports-sedan market. Although Japanese and Korean automakers are getting closer to replicating the driving enchantment of the BMW 3- and 5-series, Jaguar's dedication to luxury often overshadows the sportiness of its vehicles. The first-generation Jaguar XF did capture the enchantment when it debuted for the 2009 model year and won a 10Best award, but it's been a bumpy journey since then—quite literally in the case of Jaguar's track-focused XE SV Project 8.
