Years of criticism for being too 'traditional' and flagging sales prompted Jaguar to take a radical step when replacing the S-Type. The Jaguar XF has hints of previous Jaguars in details of its design, but looks and feels every inch a modern, upmarket saloon.

Equipment

When the Jaguar XF was launched in 2008, it was offered in Luxury, Premium Luxury and SE Business trims. These grades continue, but they have been joined by the Portfolio that offers greater luxury and the sporty XF Diesel S. There is also a Sport model, along with the standard SE entry model. All XFs come with six airbags and ESP, and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Jaguar XF equipment

The SE kicks off the Jaguar XF range and comes with Intelligent Stop/Start to save fuel, 17-inch alloy wheels, Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, automatic headlights and wipers, keyless entry and ignition, and rear parking sensors. Inside, the XF SE has suede cloth and leather upholstery, climate control, electric front seat adjustment, seven-inch touchscreen for the CD stereo, Bluetooth, digital radio and MP3 connection, and Jaguar’s multi-function steering wheel with paddle shifters for the gearbox.

For the XF Luxury, Jaguar adds full leather upholstery and satellite navigation, while the Premium Luxury model has soft grain leather seats, more electrical adjustment in the front seats, heated front seats, front and rear carpet mats, auto-dimming door and rear view mirrors, Meridian audio system, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

For the Portfolio trim, buyers get an even more upscale Meridian sound system than the Premium Luxury’s and even more electrical seat adjustment options. There’s also seat position memory and heated and cooled front seats. The Portfolio also gains 19-inch alloy wheels as standard. The XF Diesel S is only offered with the 275bhp 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine and comes in a trim level very similar to the Portfolio’s but with 20-inch alloy wheels.

The S also has a restyled front bumper with lower air intakes, side sills and rear lower bumper.

For the Sport, its equipment levels are comparable to the SE but it comes with 18-inch alloy wheels as standard. The SE Business is also very close in spec to the standard SE except it comes with satellite navigation, side sill extensions, restyled front bumper and a grille with blacked-out inserts.

Jaguar XF accessories

Across the Jaguar XF range, there is the option of adding Adaptive Cruise Control with Intelligent Emergency Brake and Active Seat Belts to ward off low-speed collisions. Front parking sensors are another option on all models, while 20-inch alloys are another choice too. A Blind Spot Monitor can be added, along with Interactive Voice control for the stereo and other functions. For lower spec XFs, it’s also possible to upgrade to the more powerful 380W Meridian Audio System.
