XF WINTER MODE
Performance in Snow and Ice
JaguarDrive Control™ gives the driver an opportunity to fine-tune the driving characteristics of the XF. This is achieved by selecting from the driving modes.
For winter conditions, Winter Mode is the choice for continued performance. Driving in this mode, changes the XF´s functionality in these ways:
- Engine – tempers the responsiveness of the engine and modifies the gear change strategy to maintain optimum traction in snowy, icy or slippery conditions.
- Gearbox – when active, Winter Mode selects the second gear for pulling away. This provides the optimal amount of torque to the rear tires when accelerating from a stop position.
- Dynamic Stability Control – the vehicle performs in a more controlled manner, allowing more confident progress. Each time progression is monitored through the Dynamic Stability Control system. When slipping is detected, DSC will assist the driver to help maintain control.
