Leasing a Jaguar XF
Impressive executive saloon
Great handling and ride
While the Jaguar XF is in a competitive segment, it really is an impressive executive saloon delivering great handling and ride. There's a lot to recommend it, including the equipment levels.
Engines and performance for the Jaguar XF
There is a choice of petrol and diesel engines for the excellent Jaguar XF, including a 2.0 litre diesel unit that should return around 69 mpg. Drivers also have the option of a 3.0 litre petrol V6 unit, although for those who want better economy and similar performance should look closely at the 2.0 litre diesel unit producing 240 HP. All of the engines offer a nice balance between performance and economy with the 3.0 litre petrol unit offering economy of 52 mpg for its blistering performance.
Equipment and handling
The revamped Jaguar XF has taken a popular car and made it an iconic one to treasure. It's competing with popular German marques and the XF not only looks great, but also has an impressive interior. It's also great fun to drive, whether that's around town or on long motorway journeys and it's an agile saloon on winding country roads. Part of this impressive performance is down to the extensive use of aluminium that makes the car lighter and the strong chassis delivers the strength when being put through its paces. The new model is larger than the car it replaced with some nice design ideas in the cabin and extensive use of premium materials. The infotainment system is also new with sharp graphics and it's easy to use. There's a long list of standard equipment including a leather interior, bi-zenon headlights and satnav along with electric power steering. Driver assistance systems include a parking assistant and lane keeping assist. Essentially, the Jaguar XF is one of the most rewarding cars to drive in its segment and it's also one of the best looking and with the extra space on board, it's an all-round impressive offering.
