New Jag XF diesel vs BMW and Audi
At last, the Jaguar XF is available with a four-pot diesel. But how does it match up to its rivals?

Whether this is the image Jaguar wants the XF to project is doubtful, but that'll be the way it works out when the lowest-common-denominator buyer isn't an early-retiree wafting along the middle lane of life in his cherished V6, but a stressed everyman with places to get to, people to see, meetings to be successful at. Volumes will go up (which will make Jaguar happy), exclusivity will be lost (but it won't lose much sleep over that) and motorways across the land will be pounded by 2.2-litre diesel XFs.
So, what every high-miler needs to know is: does the new XF stack up?
