Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Brisk and quite. Handles particularly well with communicative steering. Dampers can be changed to suit your journey with the Dynamic mode switch.

What's it like to park?
Fairly easy. Mine doesn't have the rear camera but most have this feature plus front parking sensors are available. Having made do without sensors for some years, it's a doddle for me with the rear sensors.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
When the fuel tank if full, there is a thud when braking. Tank slap, and it's a known fault on some XF's, annoying rather than dangerous. There is a fix but mine didn't work.

What's most practical about your car?
Easy access, comfy and fast. It can be very economical when needed too.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cooled seats.
