Jaguar has revealed the long-wheelbase XFL at the 2016 Beijing auto show, and the automaker has also announced that it will build the stretched sedan in China. The XFL will be the first model the automaker manufactures in China in a new assembly plant in the city of Changshu, marking the opening of the first purpose-built aluminum body shop in the country.

Building on the standard-wheelbase Jaguar XF, the XFL has been developed exclusively for the Chinese market and comes with more space for rear-seat passengers. Additional convenience features include an available wi-fi hotspot that can connect up to eight devices; a rear seat entertainment system with 8-inch screens; seats that heat, cool, and massage; and a new cabin air ionization feature. A Clear Exit Detection system that warns rear seat passengers of incoming traffic approaching from behind when they exit also makes its debut in the XFL.

Jaguar Land Rover’s InControl Pro infotainment system is also available in the XFL and comes with a 10.2-inch touchscreen and a reconfigurable 12.3-inch TFT display with full-screen 3D map view. A 17-speaker Meridian surround sound system is also available along with a host of active safety features including adaptive full-LED headlights, a head-up display, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with queue assist, and lane keeping assist.

Under the hood, the Jaguar XFL will be available with a choice of gas four- or six-cylinder engines mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-liter turbo-four is available in 200- and 240-hp variants while the 3.0-liter V-6 generates 340 hp. Rear-wheel drive will be standard across the board as all-wheel drive isn’t currently offered.
