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?

Is the new Jaguar left exposed as a result? In a way it is, yes. The XF should have had this engine from the start and now seems half a generation out of date in the light of the cosseting 5-Series. It's also diving into a market sector where buyers will judge it on merit and costs more than badge and style. Perhaps this doesn't matter. Jaguar's sales will rocket just from having this car in the range. But the title of best entry-level diesel exec? That belongs to BMW.
