A Used Jaguar XF Ticks All the Boxes
The XF blows its class competitors out of the water in the styling stakes. Its sleek lines along its length are matched in the front end with curves down to the menacing grill, which delivers the looks like a Jaguar should. The only real complaint is that the back looks like an Aston Martin, which can only be a good thing, right?
Quality and practicality
The XF oozes quality from every pore. The interior has seen no expense spared with innovative lighting putting its class rivals in the shade. The central hub hasn't changed much and still offers the perfect space for the drivers necessities tucked away in a neat central cubby-hole. There's a cosy feel to the front of the car, but the rear still remains a bit cramped. However, you won't mind being just that little bit closer to all of the quality around you.
Performance and Economy
Improvements have been made in the quality of Jaguar's engines, which maintain the potency while not negating the feel and composure that Jaguar are known for. The best has to be the 2.2 diesel, which can race from 0-60 in just 7.4 seconds. Moreover, the diesel engines will give you much more bang for your buck in terms of economy.
Ride and Handling
Not often do cars match up to the ride and handling of a BMW, but Jaguars composure and hugging of the bends overwhelm any of its class rivals. It will not be beaten on comfort and ride if you are someone who racks up the miles. The XF combines blistering pace with effortless grace to be the top of its class.
Overall, the Jaguar XF is one the best saloons available right now and provides a superb update to the outdated S-Type. From the styling to the comfort, the XF offers great value for money; especially if you are buying it second-hand with low mileage.
Buying a quality used car can be something of a headache. What should you buy to get the best value for money, but also the most luxurious, despite being second hand?
