Jaguar has updated its gorgeous looking XF with a feature loaded and luxurious interior and punchy performing engines
Despite more premium SUVs than ever before, luxury sedans seem to have lost little of their sheen. They still provide the classic three-box silhouette offering great comfort, interiors, dynamics, design, and driving experience. The Germans rule the game but the Jaguar XF always had a special place amongst the people who preferred to have it in a more unique and in a more classy way. The XF has always stood out for its good looks, incredible dynamics and a quintessential British badge. What we have here is the Prestige variant of the XF petrol, which is the entry-level variant. We drive it and tell you whether it makes sense to opt for this.
Motor Quest: The Jaguar XF was the direct replacement to the S-Type and came to India towards the end of 2008. The XF was designed to take on the established German competition comprising of the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6. In its second generation now, the XF is bigger, lighter, more dynamic and more comfortable than the previous model.
Exteriors – The Jaguar XF is a long and classy looking sedan. You will instantly notice the larger grille, intricate design of headlights and splashes and dashes of chrome on the bumpers. The design up front looks quite handsome but we would have preferred more aggression considering that it is a Jaguar. The side of the car looks stately. However, on the Prestige trim of our test car, the wheels look a bit small making the car feel under-tyred. However, the design of the alloy wheels looks nice. The rear angle of the XF is probably its best. With large, F-Type like taillights and a nice strip of chrome above it, the XF looks properly sporty. The twin exhausts are the icing on the cake.
