Handsome styling; excellent interior; comfortable seats; fine handling; great new technology.
Design not drastically different from that of the previous generation; rearview camera should be standard throughout the range; advanced safety aids only available in higher trims.
Take a midlevel Prestige, add a few choice safety and technology options, and it becomes a well-equipped, high-tech Jaguar for around $65,000 -- not bad for a brand-new luxury car. By all means, get the more powerful V6, but the difference in real performance is negligible. Find a Jaguar XF for sale

2017 Audi A6 -- The A6 or the A7 both offer optional all-wheel drive, a comfortable ride and handsome designs inside and out.
2017 BMW 5 Series -- A new generation debuts for 2017. The 5 Series is traditionally at or near the top of this class, so the 2017 model is a serious contender.
2017 Cadillac CTS -- Anyone checking out a Jaguar is undoubtedly looking beyond Germany for their next car, and their time would not be wasted by test driving a CTS.
2017 Lexus GS -- Surprisingly fun for a Lexus, yet stays true to the usual qualities of excellent build and generous standard equipment.
2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- Also new for 2017. 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, an S-Class version from the generation before the current model is totally affordable.
