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.

As is to be expected with Jaguar, even the base trim gets plenty of equipment. This includes automatic lights and wipers, xenon headlights, 17in alloy wheels, leather seats (heated in the front), a suede headlining, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, and a Touch Pro infotainment system with 10.0in touchscreen, Bluetooth, DAB radio and sat-nav.

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.
