Jaguar's XF is expected to have class-leading residual values.
The XF, which costs between £33,900 and £54,900, is being tipped by leading valuers to retain more than 50% of its price after three years.
That outstrips any of its rivals, including the BMW 5 Series.
In order to keep residual values high, a Jaguar insider has told What Car? that the company will only build enough cars to meet orders, rather than flood the market.
The XF has received five stars in whatcar.com's exhaustive track test.
