Entry-level is a relative term at Jaguar, so it's best to think of the midsize XF sedan as the easiest model to own. When it debuted in 2008, the windswept XF looked miles apart from the neoclassic S-Type it replaced. The deep engine roster has included a range of V6 and V8 engines, with supercharging available on the latter since 2009.
Power choices are revised this year in a nod to greater efficiency. There's a new 2-liter four-cylinder turbo, and a supercharged 3-liter V6 that replaces last year's normally aspirated V8. For those who need high performance, Jaguar continues to offer two versions of its supercharged V8.
