I can't imagine what the reviewer on 21 Feb was on when he wrote that, and find it almost impossible to believe that he has actually driven an XF. I had the pleasure of doing so a couple of days ago, and my word its a terrific car.
Looks are an individual thing, of course, but I think it looks gorgeous, and the standard equipment level is very high, although I'm amazed that Bi-xenon lights are extra. The cabin is a total delight, the engine willing, powerful and flexible, the drive options - normal/sport/paddles etc - give the driver everything one could hope for. The driving experience is altogether very impressive indeed, grippy and tight sweeping through the bends.
If I only give it four stars its because I've been driving a Saab 9-5 Aero for the last couple of years and missed that savage acceleration when you drop a gear or two. Having said that, am I going to order an XF? You bet!
what as happened to jaguar why have they gone like ford the new xf is not a jaguar its a dressed up mondeo or some sort of jap rubbish come on jag you can come up with something better than that you are getting more like the japs just rubbish go back to the drawing table and come up with a car we can call a jaguar and not a dressed up mondeo sorry i have to say this but british cars are just 100% rubbish whats going on?
I drove this car on Sunday, its awesome, simply put.. I am amazed at the comment from the previous chap where he states "he knows about cars" obviously he does not as the residuals expected on this car outclass the Audi A5, and BMW 5 too. Ordered one too due in April, cannot wait! The interior is of a high standard and feels solid and soft in the right places, corners flat and sticky and the 2.7 v6 D is a good engine, pulls right through and doesnt lack power.. as to looking like a mondeo?! no more than a boxster looks like an MR2, or 300c looking like a Bentley etc etc, this car is different and is a milestone for Jaguar! wait till the new XF R comes out
I was overwhelmed by the sophistication of this new Jaguar. The ride is perfect for a driving enthusiast and the power is extremely satisfyng. I want this car! I was totally impressed with the technology and its ease of use. It is a 10 out of 10!

owned for 3 years Pro engine, performance, size, looks Cons Service cost (BMW in general), folding rear seats is an option - annoying, no spare…
Even after 8 months I still look forward to driving this car. The handling is superb, the 8 speed gearbox a dream. There is a bit of lag when you…
