It may look very familiar, but the Jaguar XF is an all-new car that aims to give the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class a run for their money. Obviously, the big question here is whether or not it will be able to compete with the German trio of executive sedans.
Well, we can get some hints from reviews of the new Jaguar XF, with Auto Express being one of the first media outlets to test drive the new sedan. The good news is the latest XF rides better than its predecessor, thanks to a new suspension setting at the rear called Integral Link.
James Batchelor describes the XF’s ride quality as “flawless” and the steering as “full of feel.” He even goes on to say that steering is very close to that of the BMW 5-Series. In terms of engines, the reviewer says the pick of the range is the 2.0-liter diesel – not because it’s exciting to drive but because it’s very frugal.
However, for those who don’t care about fuel-economy when buying a Jaguar executive sedan, the 380PS 3.0-liter supercharged V6 is obviously the only engine to consider.
