2010 Jaguar XF Sedan

Benefits of Driving a 2010 Jaguar XF Sedan

Designed as a replacement for the S-Type, the Jaguar XF is a midsize luxury car / sports sedan that was first sold in the United States for the 2009 model year. It competes directly with the BMW 5-Series, Lexus GS 460 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Like other Jaguar models, the XF flaunts a very sporty and stylish appearance, with a low roofline and more aggressive stance, pronounced fender vents and a bulging hood design. It's got a more flamboyant style than the competition, not to mention strong luxury and with the XFR, a 510 horsepower engine.

What's new for 2010?

For 2010, there are three new trims for the Jaguar XF. The XF Premium trim offers a naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine, the XF Supercharged gets the same engine but delivers almost 100 more horsepower, and the high-performance XFR has an even more powerful engine that delivers 510 horsepower. All trims have additional noise-reduction materials for 2010. The 4.2L V8 supercharged engine from 2009 has been discontinued.

Model Strengths

  • Performance and luxury in the Jaguar tradition
  • stunning interior appointments
  • wide range of quality materials

Model Review

Five different trims available for the 2010 XKF: the base Luxury, the Premium Luxury, the Portfolio, the Supercharged and the XFR. All are 4-door sedans that come standard with rear-wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission with JaguarDrive Selector, which uses a unique rotary design that Jaguar claims is intuitive and also saves interior space. It includes a Sequential Shift System, which enables the driver to manually shift gears with steering-wheel-mounted paddles.

2010 Jaguar XF / XFR Road Test

Source: The Car Connection

Editors at TheCarConnection.com drove the 2010 Jaguar XF and XFR to write this hands-on road test. In addition to editor's impressions and opinions, this review compares the 2010 Jaguar XF with other vehicles in its class. The companion full review adds a summary of opinions from other respected automotive sites to bring you the best information from around the Web.

High Gear Media obtained a press vehicle from Jaguar for the purposes of this road test.

New last year, the Jaguar XF lineup marks a clean break from the overtly traditional Jaguar shapes of the past. At the same time Jaguar changed hands itself-from Ford to India's Tata-the very essence of the cars shifted as well. So far, the XF has been a success, and for its sophomore season the XF adds a pair of new V-8 engines, one charged with 510 horsepower. Prices start from $52,000 for the base XF Luxury; perched atop an XF Premium Luxury and a Portfolio edition sits the exotic-performing $80,000 XFR.

The 2009 XF replaced the stuffy X-Type in the Jaguar lineup, and its svelte shape's an instant classic, with all the catlike cues and curves that should have been in Jaguar's styling notebook for the past decade. There still are mesh grilles and classic proportions, but you almost expect to see the Jaguar XF in an Infiniti showroom with its softly sculptured roofline, faceted hood, and smartly irregular headlamps. From the back, it's as close to an Aston Martin as any sedan comes (apart from Aston's own Rapide). XFR sedans get stronger chins, four tailpipes, and bigger wheels. If possible, the XF's cabin delights drivers even more than the exterior. It seems to have been lifted from the front desk at a chic London hotel. There's aluminum and wood trim, to be sure, as well as a groovy puck-shaped shifter knob that rises to attention when the ignition button's pressed. At the same time, vents roll open to life, and ambient lighting begins to glow. Jaguar considers it the car's "heartbeat," and it's a clever wake-up call to the reinvigorated design all around.

Stealthy, gripping performance is the new XF's calling card. The 300-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-8 carried over from the first-year sedan is joined in 2010 by two 5.0-liter V-8s. One brings with it 385 horsepower, the other a supercharger and an astonishing 510 hp. A sole six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters works with all three. The rear-drive XF simply gets better with each step up the performance ladder; you'll never miss a beat with the 300-hp version and its 6.3-second stomp to 60 mph-that is, until you sample the 385-hp, 5.5-second-to-60-mph V-8 or the shatteringly fast XFR, which drops the 60-mph dash in a Viper-like 4.7 seconds. The larger V-8 cars also top out at 155 mph. The drivetrains are deceptively smooth, the shifting invisibly quick, and even fuel economy is a cut above the class at 16/24 mpg, 16/25 mpg, and 15/23 mpg. Light, direct steering and capable brakes add up to a joyful driving experience, and with 20-inch tires and electronic systems like Active Differential Control and Adaptive Dynamics shuffling power between the rear wheels and adjusting suspension and steering firmness, the 5,000-pound Jaguar XF out-nimbles some of the less weighty sedans in its class.

Its luxurious cabin has ample space for front passengers, but sensible-shoes drivers will want to look past the Jaguar XF for a vehicle with more rear-seat room. In front, driver and passenger sit low in leather pockets with good side support and power adjustments that multiply with each pricier model. Behind them, the rear seats may as well be used for luggage; it's slightly larger than the four-door it replaced, but the Jaguar XF's dramatic styling cuts into backseat room with no apologies. It's packaged more like a four-door coupe than a family sedan, but the trunk is large for the class, and the rear seats fold down for access to the trunk. The console and doors have enough small-item storage, even a deep cup holder. The lavish materials inside set a new high-water mark for Jaguar. Leather trim is double-stitched, and LED lighting mixes with choice wood and metallic trim to turn the cabin into a most atmospheric space.

At this writing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not yet performed crash tests on the Jaguar XF. Neither has the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), an insurance industry-funded research group. Six airbags are standard, along with stability control and electronic assistants like a rearview camera. Unlike other sedans in its class, the XF doesn't offer an all-wheel-drive option.

All 2010 Jaguar XF sedans are built with luxury in mind. Standard equipment on the $52,000 Jaguar XF Luxury includes a sunroof; automatic climate control; a keyless entry and ignition system; an electronic parking brake; leather upholstery and walnut trim; heated front seats; Sirius Satellite Radio, a six-CD changer, and a navigation system all controlled via a large LCD touch screen in the dash or by voice commands; and Bluetooth connectivity. The $57,000 Premium Luxury model adds the 5.0-liter V-8, blind-spot monitors, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and ventilated front seats. The Portfolio edition offers the 5.0-liter V-8 with distinct leather and suede upholstery, along with ebony dash trim. The $80,000 XFR fits the supercharged V-8; 20-inch wheels; a heated steering wheel; adaptive cruise control; and a Bowers & Wilkins audio system with HD and Sirius Satellite Radio and integration for audio players. Most of the XFR's audio offerings are options on lesser models, along with 20-inch wheels.


The Bottom Line:

The 2010 Jaguar XF betters its class-leading rating at TheCarConnection.com with a sizzling XFR edition.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Corrosion 6 Years/Unlimited Miles

Jaguar Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

Terms include up to 6 year/ 100,000 miles limited warranty.
Age/Mileage Eligibility 5 yrs or less from inservice date/less than 60K mi
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 150
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible No
