Parkers overall rating: 4.1 out of 5 4.1
  • More space for people and luggage this time around
  • Top-spec models have a 40:20:40 split rear seat
  • Plenty of storage cubbies in the upmarket cabin

Given the sleekness of its four-door coupe-like profile, you’d be forgiven for imagining Jaguar XF practicality might not be particularly impressive – but there's room for four adults and a decently sized boot.

There’s also a handful of usefully sized storage areas. There’s a rubber-backed well in front of the gear lever, a pair of cup holders in the centre console and a hinged armrest which also reveals a couple of USB ports and a 12-volt charging point

Rear parking sensors come as part of the package of all models, while higher-end trims additionally feature a complementary set at the front and a reversing camera too. A 360-degree camera system and self-parking can be added at extra cost.

Will my luggage fit?

This generation of XF features a larger aperture than before allowing better access to the 540-litre capacity boot.

As standard all Portfolio and S specification models have a 40:20:40-split rear seat back, allowing longer, more awkward loads to be carried with ease. Fortunately, this is also optional on other models should you need the improved practicality that it offers.

Many versions come with keyless entry as standard but all feature keyless start. A powered boot lid is also available, and its ease of use can be bolstered further by an additional gesture control upgrade.

Safety

  • Full five-star crash test score from Euro NCAP
  • An inherently safe executive saloon
  • Further safety kit is optionally available

When crash-tested by the safety experts at Euro NCAP, the Jaguar XF was awarded a full five-star rating.

All XFs are equipped with six airbags, electronic stability control, lane departure warning, all-surface progress control (extra traction at low speeds for automatic versions), traffic sign recognition and a pair of Isofix child seat-mounting points in the back.

A suite of further options are available in two of the optional packages.

Integral to the Advanced Parking Assist option is a 360-degree camera function, including self-park and drive-out facilities, as well as a junction-view camera which splits the screen to show what’s to the left and right as you ease out of obscured junctions.

Second is the appropriately titled Active Safety Pack which includes adaptive cruise control to monitor the speed of the vehicles in front, as well as Lane Keep Aid (LKA) and Driver Condition Monitoring (DCM) to measure the apparent state of alertness of the driver.
