Practicality & boot space Rating

4.5 out of 5

Although executive saloons aren’t always bought for their sheer passenger and luggage-carrying capacity, they frequently double up as family cars, so it’s nice to know the Jaguar XF can, at a pinch, accommodate up to five people and their luggage in comfort if needed. It's helped in this regard by additional rear-seat space compared to the outgoing model and a boot that equals or betters the capacity of rivals.

Jaguar XF interior space & storage

The XF is bigger than the first-generation car, with 15mm more legroom, 24mm more knee room and 27mm more headroom than its predecessor. It feels just spacious enough back there, and room for front-seat occupants is generous, too – overall, this is a very comfortable and roomy car. Elsewhere, the steering wheel adjusts both in and out and up and down, while a good-sized glovebox and front door bins mean you won’t be short of somewhere to keep your various odds and ends.

Boot space

At 459 litres, the Jaguar XF's boot capacity is slightly down on that of its close rivals, the four-door saloon versions of the Audi A6 (530 litres) and BMW 5 Series (530 litres). Split-folding rear seats allow you to carry more if necessary and a gesture control system means you only need to wave your foot under the rear bumper to open the boot.

Towing

Every diesel XF can tow a 2,000kg braked trailer, except for the entry-level 2.0-litre with 161bhp, which can tow 1,600kg. Either a detachable or electrically extending tow bar are available as official accessories.
