Handsome styling; excellent interior; comfortable seats; fine handling; great technology.
Design not drastically different from the previous generation; advanced safety aids only available in higher trims.
Jaguar has ditched the no-name base trim level and the R-Sport. A limited-edition 300 Sport trim joins the lineup. The Sportbrake wagon variant now becomes available in a more affordable Prestige trim with the 296-hp 4-cylinder engine. Every version receives an updated infotainment system with the 10.2-in touchscreen and the navigation system now responds to voice commands. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration is an optional Smartphone package. The cabins have also been enlivened by simulated suede headliners, bright metal pedals, chromed seat switches, illuminated metal tread plates and frameless/self-dimming rearview mirrors.

Now there's a less expensive yet still well-equipped Sportbrake version, this would be one way of standing out. It might prove problematic when resale time comes around, though. Regardless of body style, the V6-powered S version best encapsulates what a Jaguar should be about. Find a Jaguar XF for sale
