The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is a very competitive luxury estate. If sharp handling is your top priority, it’s without doubt one of the most enjoyable cars in its class to drive – and it comes well equipped, too. The engines aren’t that efficient, though, and interior fit and finish isn’t a match for the likes of Audi, BMW or Mercedes.get the best price
Upgrades from Prestige spec include 18in alloy wheels (except the 2.0d 163), finer-grade Windsor leather seat trim, a digital instrument panel, keyless entry, a heated windscreen, front parking sensors, a rear-view camera, power-folding door mirrors, figured ebony walnut interior trim, 10-way electrically adjustable front seats (including lumbar adjustment) and a powered tailgate.
The cheapest engine is this 2.0-litre diesel, which returns an impressive claimed average fuel economy of 62.8mpg. It drives the XF Sportbrake’s rear wheels and comes with the option of a manual or an automatic gearbox. This model is the cheapest to run as a company car, too. However, we reckon it’s worth upgrading to the 2.0d 180, which offers more pace for not a lot more money.
