Introducing the Jaguar XF

Jaguar seemingly reinvented themselves with the XF when the first generation was introduced in 2007. This was a model that was unmistakably Jaguar, but simultaneously brought a new identity that eclipsed its older siblings.

Having entered its latest generation, the British marquee have implemented an aluminium architecture that reduces the weight by nearly 200 kg. As a result of this diet, the XF feels lighter on its feet and gifts the driver with sharper acceleration and a dynamic experience.

That is not the only thing to have changed, because Jaguar have introduced their latest infotainment system and driver assistance technologies. Topping it all off is the latest range of petrol and diesel engines.

Design and Practicality

Jaguar XF Sportbrake, Driving

Believe it or not, the latest XF is shorter than the outgoing model, yet boasts more leg room for passengers sitting in the back. In fact, drivers are unlikely to hear any complaints from the leggiest of passengers, who will also appreciate the increased head room.

Jaguar XF is available in two different body styles, which comprise a traditional saloon and a Sportbrake (Jaguar's name for an estate). Naturally, the estate gets a larger boot space of 885 litres with the rear seats up and a staggering 1,700 litres with the seats folded down. The regular saloon gets between 540 and 885 litres.

Dotted around the cabin are various storage compartments and cup holders, while the door bins are big enough to swallow a large bottle of water.

Technology and Safety

Jaguar XF Interior

The Touch Pro infotainment system takes centre stage in the interior of the XF, and boasts a vibrant 10-inch display. It is a clever system that includes satellite navigation, multimedia controls, Intelligent Voice Recognition, and an Interactive Driver Display. Each feature is easy to find and use thanks to the intuitive layout.

A British Meridian Audio system completes the luxury interior, providing a crisp sound that surrounds the senses. You can also interact with the XF wherever you are, courtesy of the Remote Access smartphone app.

The XF is packed with the latest safety features and driver aids on the market. Autonomous Emergency Braking acts as a second pair of eyes on the road, while Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter ensure you are not unknowingly exceeding the speed limit.

Economy and Performance

Jaguar XF, Exterior, Front

There are a variety of diesel engines to choose from, as well as two petrol units.

The most popular 2.0-litre diesel is available with three power outputs (163, 180 and 240 bhp respectively). They each provide flexible performance that is easy to access at any speed, while returning up to 50.4 mpg on a combined cycle. A larger 3.0-litre V6 Twin Turbocharged unit with 300 bhp is available too.

With 250 or 300 bhp, the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol provides zesty acceleration, with the most potent unit completing the 0-60 mph sprint in just 5.6 seconds. Expect between 29.9 and 34.4 mpg on a combined cycle from these units.

The diesel variants come with a 6-speed manual, although they are available with a rapid-shifting 8-speed automatic gearbox. The automatic is standard on the petrol models.
