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.

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.

Petrol buyers get one of two options, starting with this 247bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder unit. It’s relatively smooth and quiet, and offers decent straight-line pace (0-62mph is done in 6.7sec) but you will have to rev it hard when overtaking. Don’t expect much more than 30mpg at best, though.
