For The Jaguar XF has stylish looks, a dramatic cabin, sensational handling, a supple motorway ride and great refinement.
Against Headroom is a little tight in the back, and the engines aren’t as clean or fuel-efficient as key rivals’.
What Car? says
The Jaguar XF is a brilliant combination of sporting saloon and luxury limo. Refined, classy and well equipped, it's among the best executive cars you can buy.

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.
