2017 JAGUAR XF
Sporty sedans with letter-and-number names are among the most popular in the world. What have you done with them? It’s as if Webster’s Dictionary had run out of words. On top of that, Jaguar’s four-door has become a member of the alphanumeric elite with a pleasant driving experience, plenty of technology, and an exciting high-efficiency engine. Unlike the original XF, there is no manual gearbox in this model, nor is there a problematic rear seat. The 2017 Jaguar XF is available in 20d, 35t, and S trim levels and may be outfitted with Premium, Prestige, or R-Sport packages.
The 2017 JAGUAR XF is offered in 9 trim levels:
- 20d Premium
- 35t Premium
- 20d Prestige
- 35t Prestige
- 20d R-Sport
- 35t R-Sport
If you’re looking for something a little more laid-back than the Cadillac CTS, this is your vehicle. Already, the 2017 Jaguar XF offers one fascinating variant of its available powertrains. The smaller XE sedan may also be equipped with this turbodiesel. In contrast to the rev-happy sport sedans with Ms and Ss in their names, the 2.0-liter turbodiesel inline-4 has a narrow diesel powerband and, although it is fast (0-60 mph takes roughly 7.7 seconds), that eagerness it exhibits off the line is short-lived.
It doesn’t have a crackling exhaust or a sporty-sounding overrun—efficient, but can it overcome diesel’s present PR issue and the expectations of Jaguar buyers? The EPA rates each of these V-6s equally, even though they have different power outputs. All-wheel-drive XF sedans get 20/28/23 mpg in the city and highway, while the rear-drive V-6 XF sedans get 20/28/23 mpg.
After starting the vehicle, the rotary gear selector rises out of the dashboard and pulses red like a heartbeat before the engine starts. This is the XF’s signature since it first arrived in 2007. As the Jag warms up, the outside two air vents spin into position, while the center two vents remain stationary. Despite its tiny touchscreen and analog instruments in the cluster, the RAV4’s interior is a delight. The ‘Riva Hoop’ that wraps around the windshield provides a cocoon for the front-seat occupants and is a design wonder. Leather seats and a stylish, just-right-sized steering wheel are standard equipment on all models.
The 2015 Jaguar XF midsize car didn’t have any problems, which may have prompted Jaguar to take a modest, evolutionary approach to revamp it for 2016. You wouldn’t be able to tell the changes in external design without the help of a teacher. The total length of the 2016 XF has decreased by 0.1 inches, but the wheelbase has grown by 2 inches for the additional internal room, which helps separate the XF from the incoming XE small sedan. The S trim lacks the metallic-looking crossbars that sit above the outboard air vents in the front bumper of lesser trim levels, but otherwise, they appear the same. The 2017 Jaguar XF S comes standard with 20-inch wheels, 18-inch alloys for the Premium trim level, and 19-inch for the midrange trims. As an option, adaptive LED headlights may be added to the R-Sport and S models.
Seating and Comfort
While being marketed as a midsize luxury vehicle, the XF’s cabin is tiny and cramped, which some may mistake for “intimate.” Seating in both the front and rear of the vehicle is indisputably comfy. However, given the price of the test vehicle, it would be wonderful if Jaguar had a massaging feature for the front seats. Jaguar’s dual-zone climate control system is simple, with settings within easy reach of both the driver and front passenger. The climate system’s dashboard geography also incorporates a disc player, volume control knob, danger flasher button, and the engine starts/stop button. The other control buttons are positioned randomly among them. As a whole, the design seems a little shaky.
