Jaguar's F-TYPE Coupe gets further enhancements that will appeal to keen drivers. This story keeps getting better and better, as Jonathan Crouch reports.
If you think the big three prestigious German brands have the Executive car segment sewn-up, a drive in Jaguar's second generation XF may be enough to make you reconsider. Even in the face of tough competition from rivals like the BMW 5 Series, the Mercedes E-Class and the Audi A6, this car offers a compelling range of virtues. There's a choice of saloon or Sportbrake bodystyles.
The XF range hinges around a 2.0-litre diesel four-cylinder engine with 163, 180 or 240PS. There's also a 2.0-litre petrol unit with 200, 250 or 300PS. And two 3.0 V6s, a 300PS twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre diesel and a 380PS supercharged 3.0-litre petrol unit. As for design, well, from almost any angle, you'd know this was a Jaguar. You'd know this was an XF.
Jaguar's E-PACE gives buyers another, very interesting option in the Audi Q3-dominated segment for premium-badged compact SUVs. Jonathan Crouch looks at what's on offer.
Jaguar makes a full-electric vehicle - and a very good one. Jonathan Crouch looks at the I-PACE.
Jaguar's XE is much improved. Jonathan Crouch drives the volume D180 diesel version.
Bold, innovative, forward-thinking and able to level with the class best, this XE proved to be the most credible Jaguar sports saloon we'd seen since the Sixties. It chased bigger sales but unlike some of its predecessors, didn't dilute crucial elements of brand credibility to do it. On the contrary, it's a model company founder Sir William Lyons might have been proud of. He sought to make cars that made their owners feel 'alive' and the objective of this one was exactly that, aiming at nothing less than a fresh dynamic benchmark in the German brand-dominated compact executive segment, a target it got very close to achieving.
Failings are relatively few. Yes, buyers will lack a little when it comes to boot space and some may find selected areas of the styling approach to be slightly conservative. There's nothing wrong with the fundamentals of this design though and the aluminium underpinnings that lie beneath that taut bodywork are more sophisticated than anything previously seen in this segment in this era. In short, this is an under-rated car. Before you opt for a used 3 Series, C-Class or A4 in this segment, seek an XE out. We think you might like it.
