Jaguar XF

2019
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The XF is the sportiest midsized luxury sedan. It's taut and agile, with lively steering, yet possesses a supple and composed ride. The 340-hp supercharged V6 is punchy but may have too much of a growling sound for a luxury car. A more powerful 380-hp version is also available. We got 21 mpg overall with our all-wheel-drive XF. The front and rear seats are very comfortable, and the trunk is large. But interior ambience is a bit austere for a Jaguar, and the standard infotainment system is slow and somewhat fussy. The air-conditioning system is rather wimpy. Also available are a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and a wagon version called Sportbrake with all-wheel drive. Automatic emergency braking and blind-spot warning are optional.

The air-conditioning system is rather wimpy. All new models get a generous five-year/60,000-mile warranty, which includes free scheduled maintenance and roadside assistance.

Jaguar XF 2018
Jaguar's mid-level S-Type sedan was introduced for 2000, competing with the likes of the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The S-Type shared its rear-drive platform with the Lincoln LS. We found handling to be fairly nimble, and the ride supple and controlled. The optional V8 was strong and smooth, the V6 much less so. The interior was a bit tight and the trunk was tiny. Overall, the driving experience was more run-of-the-mill than luxurious. Reliability has been mostly subpar. The XF replaced the S-Type for 2009. It brought first-rate driving dynamics and a comfortable ride but a rather snug though beautifully finished interior.

Jaguar XF 2015
The midsized Jaguar XF is something of a boutique selection: stylish, expensive, and a little whimsical, even eccentric. It may be the sportiest-handling car in its class, with driving dynamics like the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series. The ride is compliant and composed with underlying firmness. Most will have the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and eight-speed automatic. The base engine is a four-cylinder; three powerful V8s top the range. Our AWD V6 proved very quick and agile. Low-slung, coupe-like styling takes a toll on access and visibility. The cabin is beautifully finished but snug, especially in back, and controls are needlessly complicated.

Jaguar XF 2012
The XF replaced the S-Type for 2009. Considerably more in keeping with the traits we've come to expect from Jaguar, the XF brought first-rate driving dynamics and a comfortable ride. While somewhat snug, the interior is beautifully finished, although some of the controls are more complicated than they really need to be. This iteration of the XF can be found with either V8 or V6 power.
