Buy a Jaguar XF and you’ll never feel short changed by the handling or interior quality. It's a great driver's car that offers luxury and performance in equal measure. Even entry-level editions are well equipped and cruise effortlessly on the motorway. That said, it's worth noting that passenger space is adequate rather than impressive, and luggage carrying capacity is not as good as the new BMW 5 Series. The fit and finish of the highly distinctive cabin and recently facelifted exterior partly makes up for that. All versions are fast, although the 3.0 V6 diesel engine is the pick of the range, giving the XF effortless performance while returning decent fuel economy. It's just as refined as the petrol models in the range, too. The new 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine is also very impressive, capable of returning 50mpg. The XF compares well to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6, although the latest BMW 5 Series sets new benchmarks for executive cars.
