Arguably the most iconic British car maker of all time, the XF, on sale from 2008 as a replacement for the S-Type, sits in the middle of the Jaguar range and rivals the likes of the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
A new generation of the Jaguar XF saloon was launched in 2015 and was a major improvement over the old model. The new diesel engines are particularly impressive for combining performance and economny, it's very agile and there's more space for passengers particularly in the back. It impressed us so much we gave it five stars.
Developed at Jaguar's HQ in Coventry and built at Castle Bromwich Assembly facility in Birmingham, the XF is available as a saloon, estate (named Sportbrake) and two high performance versions called the R and RS.
