What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Sharp styling, supple handling, effortlessly cool

Against Expensive to buy and run

Verdict The king of cool, but at a price

Go for… 2.7D V6 Luxury

Avoid… 4.2 V8 Premium Luxury

Jaguar XF Saloon
  • 1. The XF's interior is an Aladdin's cave of contemporary design, where everything has solid and well-built feel.
  • 2. Of the four engines available, the 2.7 V6 diesel is the best all-round choice. More than enough power and lower running costs.
  • 3. The diesel version has average fuel economy of 35mpg compared with 26.8mpg - 22.4mpg from the petrols.
  • 4. Gremlins include doors sticking, fuel filler flap jamming. The car's air-conditioning and sat-nav have also experienced a few intermittent faults.
  • 5. Jaguar has gone a long way in improving its cars' reliability: scoring well in the JD Power customer satisfaction survey and What Car?'s reliability tests.
