Fun to drive

Limited rear headroom

Pricey compared to some rivals

Little else.

The Jaguar XF is as sharp and modern as its S-Type predecessor was retro and divisive, and this makes it almost universally well received by the press.


There’s very little to complain about in the XF’s cabin. It’s reasonably spacious, has a sporting, comfortable driving position and high quality materials. Testers also like the “surprise and delight” features such as the gear selector rising from the centre console.

Rear visibility isn’t quite as impressive, though, it is slightly restricted.


The Jaguar’s handling is praised in every test. Some models can be occasionally harsh in ride comfort but generally they’re up with the best in class. The experts say it’s not quite as sharp as a BMW but reckon it’s much more fluid and agile than a big executive car has any right to be.


Refinement is the order of the day with every XF engine. The diesels are all quiet and smooth with plenty of power and torque, and the 8-speed automatic transmission locks up early for better economy and sharp engine response. Drivers looking for great economy and low tax will want the 2.2 D, one of the most powerful in its class.

In January 2012, Jaguar announced an even more efficient version of the 2.2D. It has 163PS and can get up to 52mpg. Full details here – Jaguar XF 2.2D 163 .

Value for money

Equipment levels are strong and the XF shouldn’t depreciate too drastically, which makes its competitive purchase price even more appealing. Fuel economy is good, but not quite up to the level of some rivals.

Worth noting

As is frequently the case these days, the diesels are the models to go for. The 3.0 D is incredibly refined and the 2.2 is the cheapest to run. Sportier trim levels can spoil the ride a little, so regular models will be better on UK roads.

The large transmission tunnel makes it effectively a four-seater, the rear middle seat can only really be used for short journeys.

If you’re not one for brand loyalty and simply want the best executive car for your money, the Jaguar comes highly recommended. If you were thinking of trying a BMW 5-Series, have a test drive in an XF too – it may surprise you!
