The 2016 Jaguar XF has been spied undergoing cold weather testing ahead of a possible debut at the New York Auto Show.

Looking instantly recognizable, the sedan has an evolutionary front fascia with a rectangular grille and LED-infused headlights. There's also a familiar rear end with a new trunk that appears to have an integrated spoiler.

Moving on to the interior, we can see there's a new dashboard with more conventional air vents.  The model also has metallic trim, a rotary gear knob and a larger infotainment display.

Jaguar has been coy on technical specifications but the model is expected to ride on an extended version of the iQ[Al] platform that underpins the XE. This could enable the model to weigh up to 100 kg (220 lbs) less than its predecessor.

Under the hood, we can expect an assortment of 2.0-liter  four-cylinder Ingenium engines and a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that develops 340 bhp (253 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. The supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine should also carryover with minor modifications for improved performance.
