Practicality & boot space Rating

3.4 out of 5

The Jaguar XF is a reasonably practical car, with a big boot and good cabin storage keeping it on level terms with rivals in its class. There are some minor quibbles though, including a slightly awkwardly shaped boot opening and the fact that the admittedly good-looking sloping roofline eats into rear headroom.

Interior space and storage

There’s plenty of space for the driver and front-seat passenger in the XF, and they have access to plenty of storage thanks to a large glovebox, cup-holders, useful door pockets and a handy central cubby.

It’s a slightly different story for adults travelling in the back of the XF, because the sloping roofline that gives the car its sleek profile cuts into headroom, meaning rear-seat occupants over six feet tall are likely to feel slightly cramped on long journeys.

Boot space

With the optional space-saving spare wheel fitted, the XF can hold 500 litres of luggage, but with the standard puncture repair kit that number increases to 540 litres. This is the same as the Mercedes E-Class and 20 litres bigger than the boot of the BMW 5 Series. Folding down the rear seats increases luggage room to 963 litres, although those split-folding rear seats are optional at extra cost – just like they are in the BMW and Mercedes. The shape of the boot is quite narrow, making it awkward to load large, cumbersome items, but the actual floor area is big and the boot hinges don’t eat into luggage space.

Towing

The Jaguar XF’s maximum braked towing weight is 1,850kg.
