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?

So now we come to the question of how you like your executive saloon. At this stage, we can rule out the Audi A6. It still lives in the 5-Series's shadow: improved, but without a genuine USP to its name. The 5-Series feels like a game-changer, halfway to being a luxury car, as refined and insulating as a 7-Series and not far off the same size. It's a directional shift I'm not entirely happy about, but one that ought to concern Jaguar - this is a BMW that steps on the toes of Jaguar's normal remit.
