For The XFR will get you to 60mph in less than five seconds and it sounds as brutal as it feels. It has superb traction and you can't fault the standard kit.

Against The ride is a little firmer than the regular XF's and fuel economy isn't great, but otherwise the drawbacks are familiar XF ones, such as the limited rear headroom.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

As you might expect of a former What Car? Car of the Year, there’s not much to criticise. It’s a little disappointing that the 2.2-litre diesel versions aren’t a little bit cleaner, but they're the cheapest XF models to buy and run. Even so, we'd still point you in the direction of the 3.0D V6 - its pace and superb refinement suit the XF perfectly, and it’s cheaper than the more powerful S version.

Prices may look a little on the high side, but this is largely explained by the generous equipment list. Even the entry-level SE model comes with part-leather upholstery and an automatic gearbox, while the next rung on the ladder – Luxury – is so well kitted that there’s no need to go any higher.

There’s a huge range of options available, including a rear-view camera and adaptive cruise control. You can also choose from a particularly wide selection of exterior colours and interior trim.
