The Jaguar XF is a heartland car, the upper-medium aspirational ‘executive’ saloon having been core to the company’s brand since the days of black and white TV. Its predecessor ushered in a new look for Jaguar but had old S-type bits underneath. This one has an all-new, aluminium-intensive chassis, new engines, and enough computer firepower to outwit an Airbus A380. Its cab-back design and tight front and rear overhangs are visual highlights, although it does look suspiciously similar to the smaller, cheaper XE.
Jaguar is determined to hang onto its sporting credentials, but it’s the XF’s sublime rolling comfort that most impresses. It has a sophisticated rear suspension that does an outstanding job of massaging away surface imperfections while delivering impressively agile handling. The entry-level 161bhp, ‘Ingenium’ 2.0-litre turbodiesel is clean and frugal but too weedy to get the best from the XF’s excellent chassis, and the 375bhp supercharged V6 is lovely but sadly irrelevant.
Our pick is the 296bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbodiesel, which has fantastic real-world pace thanks to 516 torques from just 2000rpm, impressive if not class-leading refinement, and averages a claimed 51.4mpg. It really takes the fight to the German establishment.
An in-house team of tech experts has transformed the Jaguar interior experience. Sure, you can still have wood and leather, but it’s secondary to the XF’s connectivity. Choose between an 8 or 10.2in central touchscreen, called InControl, which has the swipe and pinch functionality of a smartphone and integrates audio, sat nav and a huge array of bespoke Jaguar apps. The main instruments sit in an (optional) configurable TFT screen, and while it all teeters close to overload it’s mostly intuitive and pleasingly contemporary. There’s also a lot more space in the rear of the XF, and decent boot capacity – from 540 litres with the seats up puts it among the more commodious in this sector, which is unusual for a Jag.
