4.1 out of 5

The Jaguar XF is billed as a luxury executive saloon and it certainly feels like it inside. The leather-topped dash is stylish and though some parts are starting to look a little dated (such as some of the silver metal finishes), they don’t feel or look cheap. Nice touches like the pop-up gear selector still look slick and add a sense of occasion to the interior.

The seats are very comfortable and get more luxurious the further up the trim levels you go, as do the materials used on the doors and centre console.

The XF is effectively available in five different trim levels, going from Luxury to R-Sport, Portfolio and then Diesel S Portfolio. A special edition R-Sport Black Edition model has also been launched recently and can be counted as the fifth.

Even the basic Jaguar XF comes with climate control, cruise control, powerful automatic xenon headlights, automatic wipers, a touchscreen infotainment system, heated seats and a rear-view camera, as well as an impressive stereo.

The XF R-Sport is designed to look like the sporty Jaguar XFR, but at a fraction of the cost. It’s available with the 2.2-litre diesel engine in both power outputs, and adds sporty bumpers and a small bootlid spoiler, while inside there are lots of R-Sport badges and a set of R-Sport door sills.

The XF R-Sport Black edition can be considered something of a bargain as it adds around £8,000 worth of equipment to the R-Sport trim but only costs around £2,000 extra. The additional kit includes 20-inch black alloy wheels, special leather upholstery, 18way sports seats and a 770w Meridian surround sound hi-fi system.

The XF Portfolio model tops the range and adds even more standard equipment and more luxurious touches, including 19-inch alloy wheels and a 380w Merdian sound system.

There are plenty of options available to XF buyers including xenon headlights with adaptive lighting, blind-spot monitoring, an electric glass sunroof, upgraded stereo and upholstery, plus different alloy wheel designs and sizes.
