Launched in 2007, Jaguar’s XF took the executive world by storm. Lauded for its luxury interior, good looks and entertaining driving characteristics. The XF moved the Jaguar brand on leaps and bounds.
There’s a new second-generation version of Jaguar’s middle four door saloon, sandwiched between the XE and XJ. It gets an aluminium-intensive architecture helping reduce weight by 190kg while torsional stiffness is up 28%.
The new model is 51mm longer, 3mm lower and has a stretched wheelbase that provides rear passengers with 15mm more legroom and 24mm knee room.
It’s available with a choice of seven engines, three petrol and four diesel. Two versions of Jaguar’s 2.0-litre petrol are available with either 200PS or 250PS while there’s a range-topping 3.0-litre V6 with 380PS.
There is more choice if you want a diesel with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder available with either 163PS, 180PS and 240PS. A 3.0-litre V6 tops the range with 300PS.
The two entry level diesel engines are offered with a six-speed manual gearbox while the rest get an eight-speed ZF automatic as standard, which is an optional extra on the manual versions.
With most models being rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive is available on the more powerful variants.
Choose from four trim levels; Prestige; Portfolio; R-Sport; and XF S.
