I tried out the all new Jaguar XF Prestige 2.0 at the Malaysian launch of the XF here in Subang Jaya. This is one of two models available here in Malaysia. The XF Prestige gets 17-inch Lightweight 15-spoke wheels, perforated leather seats, metal tread plates with Jaguar script and multi-function soft-grain leather steering wheel. The other being the XF R-Sport gets a sport suspension, 18” Helix 10-spoke wheels and R-Sport bodykit, R-Sport branded multi-function soft-grain leather steering wheel and R-Sport branded metal tread plates. However, the test units were all Prestige models with different options including larger wheels and tyres. I drove one with fatter 20inch wheels. The one on the left. In that nice Italian Racing Red.
White XF R-Sport
The All-new Jaguar XF, which sits between the recently launched XE and the top-of-the-range XJ, was launched earlier today. What it does is that it renews Jaguar's challenge in the mid-sized luxury car segment.
For the Malaysian market, the fully imported All-new XF is available in two variants -- the XF Prestige and XF R-Sport. They are priced from RM450,000 for the Prestige and from RM460,000 for the R-Sport. Prices include GST but exclude registration, road tax and insurance.

The Renault Clio GT Line is the third car in the current Renault Clio line-up. The first that was launched was the Clio RS and the second was the Renault Captur, which to some extant is a Clio crossover vehicle with a different name. The Clio GT Line is the smallest sized conventional powered Renault you can buy in Malaysia (but not the cheapest), bar the electric Twizy and Zoe models of course.
Shell had recently unveiled a city car concept which could use very little energy expenditure in terms of road transport. This Shell Concept Car is a rethink of the T.25 City Car concept that Gordon Murray envisioned sometime in 2010. If you aren't aware, Mr Murray was instrumental in the design of the McLaren F1.
