Review

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.

Trim: R-Sport

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 an expensive update for not a lot of stuff, so we'd recommend sticking with the lower trims.

Engine: 2.0i [300]

The other petrol option is the same 2.0-litre with the wick cranked up to 296bhp. It’s comes with either rear- or (optional) four-wheel drive, and the extra power over the entry-level petrol means the 0-62mph time drops to around 6.0sec. It’s certainly quicker through the gears, but in reality feels a little lacklustre from a standstill given its claimed meaty power output, and the fuel consumption will be worse, too.
