The Jaguar XF is great to drive, well equipped and manages to undercut key rivals with a competitive list price, and that helps to make up for an interior that isn’t quite as plush as the class best. Go for the D200 diesel if you’re a company car buyer or worried about fuel costs and stick with entry-level S trim if you want the best value for money.

Stepping up to R-Dynamic SE trim (from R-Dynamic S trim) adds a powered steering column, keyless entry, 16-way electrically adjustable sports seats, digital dials, directional indicators and additional safety kit.

The cheapest engine in the lineup is also our favourite: the 201bhp 2.0-litre diesel (badged D200). On paper it might not be quite as quick as a BMW 520d, (0-62mph taking just 7.2 seconds in the BMW opposed to 7.6 in the Jaguar) but in the real world it feels impressively punchy from low revs and is plenty quick enough to whisk you up to motorway speeds without any fuss. Four wheel drive is available, but, since the rear-wheel drive version is cheaper, more economical and has more feelsome steering (more on that below), we wouldn’t bother unless you live in a particularly weather beaten part of the country.
