Handsome styling; excellent interior; comfortable seats; fine handling; great technology
Design not drastically different from the previous generation; rearview camera should be standard throughout the range; advanced safety aids only available in higher trims
The biggest development is the addition of the XF Sportbrake, a wagon variant. A new Portfolio trim has also been added, which means various features have been reshuffled. The range now starts off with a new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine. A more powerful version of this engine is also available, effectively replacing the least-powerful supercharged V6 option. See the 2018 Jaguar XF models for sale near you
A Prestige model with the bigger 4-cylinder engine and some options (safety features in particular) imparts some of that authoritative Jaguar character without busting the budget.
The 2018 Jaguar XF comes in base, Premium, Prestige, R-Sport, Portfolio and S trim levels.
The base XF ($48,770) starts out with the 25t gasoline engine (25t), along with xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and tail lights, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, an 11-speaker Meridian sound system, dual-zone automatic climate control, dual power front seats, leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power sunroof, a self-dimming rearview mirror, 18-in alloy wheels and a USB port.
The Premium ($50,760) adds a power-adjustable steering wheel, a rearview camera, memory settings for the driver's-side functions (seat, mirrors and steering wheel), self-dimming side mirrors and a split/fold rear seat (40/20/40).
The Prestige ($55,220) brings 19-in alloy wheels, keyless access with a push-button starter, heated front seats and steering wheel, full leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors and a navigation system with voice control and app integration.
The R-Sport ($59,120) has adaptive xenon headlights, special-design 19-in alloy wheels, sport seats and styling upgrades, satellite radio and an array of high-tech safety features including automatic high beams, lane-keeping assistance, blind spot monitoring, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Portfolio ($68,420) starts out with the more powerful 4-cylinder gasoline engine, enjoys an equipment list similar to the R-Sport, but takes things in a more luxurious direction by adding a "suede cloth" headline, ebony veneers, 18-way power-adjustable heated/ventilated front seats, configurable ambient cabin lighting, an 825-watt Meridian surround sound system, a head-up display, navigation, satellite radio and a 10.3-in infotainment display.
The XF S sedan ($64,860) enjoys the 380-hp V6 exclusively, 20-in wheels, sportier interior and exterior styling cues, adaptive suspension and memory settings for the front passenger seat.
The XF Sportbrake S wagon ($71,445) comes solely in S trim and with all-wheel drive as standard, but also includes some model-specific items like a gesture-controlled powered tailgate, a full-length fixed panoramic sunroof with a powered sunshade and a self-leveling air suspension at the rear.
Some standard features in higher trim levels are available in lower trims. Other options include a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, cooled front seats, a larger touchscreen, head-up display, Wi-Fi, a 17-speaker sound system, quad-zone automatic climate control, a power-operated trunk lid, a power rear sunshade and a driver-assistance package that features self-parking, a 360-degree camera system and adaptive cruise control.
The sedan's trunk space is 19.1 cu ft., great for the class. The Sportbrake has 31.7 cu ft. behind the rear seats, and 69.7 cu ft. when they're folded down.

2018 Audi A6 -- The A6 and the A7 both offer optional all-wheel drive, a comfortable ride and handsome designs inside and out. But a new generation is imminent.
2018 BMW 5 Series -- A new generation debuted for 2017. The 5 Series is traditionally at or near the top of this class, and this fresh version is a serious contender.
2018 Cadillac CTS -- Anyone checking out a Jaguar is no doubt looking beyond Germany for their next car and their time would not be wasted by test driving a CTS.
2018 Lexus GS -- Surprisingly fun for a Lexus, yet stays true to the usual qualities of excellent build and generous standard equipment.
2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- Plenty of new technology on board, including semi-autonomous driving assistance. Plus the usual E-Class attributes of style, space and sophistication.
Used Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- The S-Class is far more than a luxury car; it's a statement. For new XF money, a version from the generation before this current model is totally affordable.
