Jaguar's best selling vehicle is its F-PACE luxury SUV. To keep the momentum going, the brand has introduced a range of fresh engine options. Jonathan Crouch reports.
The Jaguar XF has evolved and improved, now offering a class-leading package that includes the brand's Ingenium diesel engines and AWD. Jonathan Crouch takes a look at the latest version.
Jaguar could have made it easy on themselves. They could have effectively parked their E-TYPE legacy and given up on ever replacing it. That's what the company has essentially did for four decades - but then at no time in that period was Jaguar the company it is now, one with new-found dynamism and swagger. A business ready to remind everyone of its founding membership in the sportscar segment and a rich sporting bloodline stretching back over 75 years.
This is a machine that steers, handles, stops, goes - and sounds - exactly as a Jaguar should. That sound element is important - and it's one of the key reasons why you might want this Convertible model rather than the alternative fixed-top Coupe. Either way, don't knock the F-TYPE because it's not a Boxster or a 911: the F-TYPE was never intended to be like anything else. This model is different, powerful, sensual, ultra-precise - a car that feels alive. We don't think it'll suit many who associate performance motoring from this brand with XJS or XK models. Buckle such people up behind the wheel and they're liable to be a little taken aback. No matter. Jaguar needed to find a younger, more demanding, hungrier audience for its sportscars. It needed to convince people that here and now in this market at this time in history, it could be great again. Mission accomplished.
Lighter, more spacious, better-looking and a whole lot more efficient, this MK2 XF model worried the German makers more than any model Jaguar had previously brought us. There's nothing simple about producing a car as good as this one, a model that set fresh class standards in terms of its aluminium-intensive architecture, its running costs and its ride and handling balance. True, it might not have been the game-changer its predecessor was, but then it didn't need to be. That corner had already been turned. The old XF showed how Jaguar could compete on equal terms with its Teutonic rivals. This car though, demonstrated clearly how it meant to go about beating them.
Ultimately what was so masterful about this second generation XF was how cleverly Jaguar kept and built upon what was good about the original version, while being realistic about where the old car's weaknesses were. As a result, with this 'X260'-series car, you really can have a beautiful Executive class model that offers cutting-edge technology and a dynamic driving experience but which is also built in Britain and sips fuel like a supermini. These truly are amazing times.
To celebrate a decade of XF production, Jaguar has introduced this second generation XF Sportbrake estate model. Jonathan Crouch looks at what's on offer.
