Despite the vehicle being recognisable as an XF, the heavy camouflage is unusual for just a facelift, particularly at the rear.
Up front, this XF has reshaped headlights, while the rear doors appear longer. Out the back, the heavy camouflage conceals most details, though the tail-lights appear to be similar to those of the current car.
Considering there is meant to be an high-performance SVR variant along with a more practical Sportbrake wagon body added to the current range before the next-generation model arrives, it's unclear how extensive this 'facelift' for the XF will be.
It's also worth noting the prototypes for the wagon, last spied testing in October, wear the headlights of the current model as opposed to the revised units on the vehicle in these images.
For now, we'll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned to CarAdvice for more updates.
