Jaguar has announced plans to offer four-wheel drive versions of its models in certain global markets, but the UK isn't one of them.
All-wheel drive versions of the XF and XJ saloons will be available in selected markets from 2013 model year.
Offered where consumer demand is highest – often driven by climate – the models will increase the capability and versatility of the XF and XJ in conditions where grip is compromised.
North America, Russia, China and continental Europe will account for the majority of sales for the new AWD models.
With AWD occupying less than 5% of the UK luxury saloon market, the AWD XF and XJ will not be offered in the UK for 2013 model year.
