The new F-Type takes Jaguar back to its roots in small, rear-wheel-drive two-seater convertible sports cars. Sleek and sporty, the F-Type is perhaps Jaguar's most striking vehicle in a long time – a style backed up by automotive substance from its three powerful engines. The 335bhp entry-level is followed by the 375bhp S level, before the top of the range 5.0-litre V8 S produces 488bhp, doing 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds, up to a top speed of 186mph. All models come with an eight-speed ‘quick-shift’ automatic gearbox, and the S and V8 S also come equipped with an active exhaust. So carefully styled is the new F-Type, that the door handles are even hidden to preserve the clean lines of the design language.

The new Jaguar XF is distinctive to look at, good to drive and has one of the best-designed interiors money can buy. The stylish new Sportbrake estate model will also no doubt attract new customers to the brand. Engines include a new 2.2-litre diesel that offers 50mpg, a range of 3.0-litre V6 petrol and diesels, plus two 5.0-litre petrol V8s, one of which is supercharged. Best-selling models are powered by the 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel, which is available in two different power levels. The low power version offers economy of 42mpg and emissions of 179g/km. The range is divided into Luxury, Premium Luxury and Portfolio models, but all are well equipped. Prices compare favourably to German competition such as the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The XF is a distinctive, bold looking alternative that is effortlessly fast in all guises.
When it comes to design, the latest Jaguar XJ marks a shocking departure for Jaguar. Having retained the same basic shape for decades, the current XJ is completely different, taking inspiration from the smaller XF. It's thoroughly modern inside and out, luxurious and powerful no matter whether you choose a diesel or petrol version.

The Jaguar XK coupe and convertible can trace their roots through a line of glorious sports cars that have both excited behind the wheel and pleased the eye. Our judges named it the Most Stylish, as part of the CarBuyer Car of the Year awards 2011. The XK remains true to both, with huge performance available from a 5.0-litre V8 that's offered with or without a power-boosting supercharger. With the supercharger you get 503bhp or 542bhp in the XKR-S version and pace to rival supercars. Boasting good looks and a sumptuous interior, the Jaguar is a great grand tourer.
