2010 XF Overview

The Jaguar XF is a fresh, engaging and stunningly gorgeous alternative to luxury cars such as the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Mercedes E-Class, and Lexus GS.After our test drives, we'd rank the Jaguar XF near the top of a class in which there are no unappealing entries.

The Jaguar XF delivers everything you'd expect in a contemporary luxury sedan, and then some, in styling, interior design, features, technology, driving behavior and overall impeccable luxury.The hardware underneath is anything but ordinary, much of it shared with the sporty Jaguar XK.Factor in a well-engineered body structure, and the Jaguar XF is exactly what it should be: smooth, quiet and responsive.This mid-size, rear-wheel-drive sedan feels lighter and more agile than some of the other cars in this class, and it bears up like a top-rank sports sedan when driven aggressively.

The 2010 Jaguar XF line includes four trim levels and four V8 engine choices.All XF models offer the full Jaguar experience of luxury, elegance, performance, ride and handling.The standard XF is one of the best equipped base models in this class.

The XF marks a fresh design direction for Jaguar, but includes themes that have identified the brand for decades.The swooping roofline and side glass are intended to create the impression of a sleek two-door coupe more than a four-door sedan, which is what it is, and to a considerable extent it works.

The same level of appeal is found inside; it's an interior we really like, both for its look and its overall function.Slide into the driver's seat and an interactive greeting that Jaguar calls the handshake, with the aluminum shift knob rising out of the console, welcomes the driver with the reminder that this will be an active process.The wood, wool and leather create the expected Jaguar feel and scent of an exclusive British club room, but the design itself is light, modern and airy.There's a minimalist feel to it, but it's also charming and makes familiarization easy.

The swoopy, coupe-like styling has its drawbacks, and the biggest should be obvious: That flowing roofline and raked rear glass mean rear headroom is tight, and it feels more confining than, say, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class or the Audi A6.On the upside, the XF trunk is larger than those of the competitors, and a folding rear seat offers expanded capacity.The importance of the loss of rear-seat headroom or the enhanced trunk capacity will depend upon the buyer's priorities.

We think there's no doubt the Jaguar XF is one of the most appealing choices in this wonderful class.It offers a viable alternative to the densely packed switches, multi-layered interfaces and alphabet-soup of electronic gadgets and wizardry that typifies many other choices in the luxury/sports sedan category, and does it with charm, distinctively stunning good looks and certainly no less cachet or driving dynamic capability.

The XF was introduced for the 2009 model year.For 2010, XF has some significant changes.In 2009, all the V8 engine choices were 4.2 liters displacement.For 2010, the base version has the same normally aspirated 4.2-liter, 300-horsepower V8 …
