Jaguar has streamlined its XF range by discontinuing the SE, SE Business and Premium Luxury trim levels.
The British car has also dropped two engines: the 3.0-litre V6 petrol unit and the 240hp 3.0 diesel engine.
The entry trim level is now the Luxury model, although Jaguar has tweaked the standard specification. The Winter Comfort Pack and Parking packs. Previously the options cost £810 and £500 respectively.
The firm's 200hp diesel models also get upgraded from 17-inch alloys to 18-inch alloys as standard, although cars with the less powerful 163hp engine keep the smaller wheels to reduce the CO2 emissions to 129g/km.
Higher up the range, the R-Sport gets extra standard kit - the Winter and Parking packs, and the 380w Meridian Audio system, while the Portfolio cars adds the Parking Pack, Blind Spot Monitor and 19-inch wheels as standard.
For Luxury models, Jaguar claimed the extra equipment represents an additional £1870 worth of value, with an on-the-road price increase of £600 for the 200hp models and £500 on the 163hp versions, while R-Sport models have a on-the-road price increase of £800 for the 200hp models and £700 on 163hp cars. The Portfolio trim level has been reduced by £3500.
