The Top Gear car review:Jaguar XF
For:Ride and handling are sublime, makes a strong rational case for itself
Against:Interior not quite as special as it could be
What is it?
The Jaguar XF is a heartland car, the upper-medium aspirational ‘executive’ saloon having been core to the company’s brand since the days of black and white TV. Its predecessor ushered in a new look for Jaguar but had old S-type bits underneath. This one has an all-new, aluminium-intensive chassis, new engines, and enough computer firepower to outwit an Airbus A380. Its cab-back design and tight front and rear overhangs are visual highlights, although it does look suspiciously similar to the smaller, cheaper XE.
