Review Summary:

’s entry level model, the XF, is a sleek executive car that a lot of people generally overlook.

Pros

* Compared to the slightly prosaic Germans, the XF is a breath of fresh air as far as designs are concerned.

Cons

* Interior isn't up to par of those found in its rivals.

Looks

The 2015 Jaguar XF sits alongside its two fiercest rivals, the Mercedes-Benz E Class and BMW 5 Series, with one string to its bow: it’s the only non-German one. These executive class cars are all sophisticated and subtle, but when they’re lined up alongside each other, which do you pick? It has to be the XF, because it’s so darn pretty if nothing else. Everything about it from its angry face to its neatly arrange rear-end just looks excellent.

Feel

Jaguar’s new futuristic image is certainly a winner, and inside the XF the occupants are treated to all sorts of features. There are hints of walnut, and they do look a tad out of place, but should you (yes, you should) opt to not have them, then the unencumbered styling will make you feel a part of the future.

Engineering

The 2015 Jaguar XF comes with “Hold and Control”, which is a ridiculously clever system. The steering wheel remembers your preferred seating position and adjusts it for you automatically each time you get in, and moves back when you exit so that you can dismount with ease.

What’s on offer?

The XF is, surprisingly, Jaguar’s entry model. The cheapest XF, and cheapest Jag overall, starts at AED 169,000, and for this money you get a respectable 2.0 litre set-up that will get you along nicely. If you want to turn it up a notch, there’s a 3.0 litre supercharged variant as well, and a mighty powerful one, churning out 340 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque.

Summing it…

The XF may not be the most obvious choice between the lot, but if you’re smart enough, you know it’s the best. Wearing a price tag that ranges from AED 169,000 to AED 239,000 it really is quite difficult to fault.

    I own a 2015 Jaguar XF AWD. I purchased your Jaguar in July 2014. I I have owned a Porsche , Mercedes and Audi cars. I fine this is the best car I have ever owned. The car looks good, performs well, and the quality of the fit and finish is excellent . I enjoy the exclusivity the car provides by not being so common on the streets. Well done Jaguar!

      Hi Terry,

      Glad to hear you’re enjoying the Jag experience. Standing out from the crowd is something that little Briton does quite well.

      Regards,

      Zaran
