Jaguar’s XF Sportbrake strikes a convincing balance between form and function, but iffy interior quality lets it downread the full model review
R-Sport models feature all the same kit that's standard on Prestige but add front parking sensors and more aggressive styling both inside and out. This includes black detailing and bigger alloy wheels. It’s our favourite trim.
This engine is powerful and quick but, like the other 2.0-litre diesels, it’s hampered by clattery engine noise and a sluggish eight-speed gearbox. It’s only available with all-wheel drive, so there’s plenty of grip, but CO2 emissions are high compared with rivals and fuel economy isn’t impressive either.
