2017 Jaguar XF Review

Introduction

This is the Jaguar XF in its second generation and it’s a case of ‘do not adjust your set’, as this car looks very similar to the smaller XE within its own stable. The XF is an attractive, well-equipped executive saloon that drives beautifully and which has plenty of luxury appointments, and it currently has a cheaper starting price than its key rivals. The XF is sold only as a four-door saloon, with most models featuring rear-wheel drive; four-wheel drive is offered as an option. A six-speed manual represents the first time the XF has come with a clutch pedal, although the vast majority of the Jaguar range runs the eight-speed automatic. Four trim lines and a choice of forced induction petrol and diesel engines ensure that there’s plenty of variety within the XF family.
