Overview

Jaguar has totally redesigned its XF luxury sedan, again positioned between the midsize Jaguar XE and the full-size flagship XJ model. For its second generation, the XF abandons four-cylinder and V8 engine choices, and is now powered only by versions of a supercharged 3-liter V6.

With lighter weight, courtesy of aluminum-intensive architecture, the 2016 XF flaunts a revised coupe-like profile, now with rear quarter windows, and promises more interior space. Like its predecessor, the latest XF manages to distill the unabashed elegance and character of the bigger, familiar XJ sedan down to a four-door of more modest dimensions.

What's New for 2016

Redesigned from the ground up, according to Jaguar, the 2016 XF rides a 2-inch longer wheelbase, with front overhang 2.6 inches shorter. A mesh grille sits in a front end that’s more vertical than before, and the hood contains a deep power bulge. Vents in the front bumper channel air over the front wheels. Jaguar has added an overwhelming number of modern technological systems, either standard or optional.

Choosing Your Jaguar XF

Jaguar XF

Buyers of the second-generation XF get a choice of 340- or 380-horsepower supercharged V6 engines, each mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Torque output for each engine is 332 pound-feet. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available.

The JaguarDrive Control system offers a choice of three driving modes: Normal, Winter and Dynamic. Standard All-Surface Progress Control helps to enable smooth drive-offs on low-friction surfaces, such as snow and ice. An optional Adaptive Dynamics system uses adaptive dampers to further enhance low-speed ride comfort, as well as improve agility at higher velocities.

Headlights are flush with their surrounding panels, and include J-Blade LED daytime running lights. Adaptive full-LED headlights are optional. An all-new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system features a 10.2-inch touchscreen, and it’s available with a reconfigurable 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster.

Jaguar XF

Aluminum body panels are pressed from a single sheet, which not only enhances overall stiffness but eliminates visible joints. The roofline is lower than before, while the rear deck is longer and taller. A sunroof is standard. LED taillights feature the “signature” design borrowed from the Jaguar F-Type.

In the cockpit, at start-up time, a rotary gear selector again rises up from the center console. The layered instrument panel, highlighted by a signature “Riva Hoop,” continues into each door. Trim pieces are constructed of fine veneers and textured aluminum. Interiors feature a black suedecloth headliner and fluted Windsor seat upholstery.

Options include four-zone climate control, heated seats, power trunk closure, and window blinds. Rear occupants get 1.1 inches of additional headroom, compared to the previous XF sedan.

CarsDirect Tip

Prices start at $52,895, but Jaguar has not yet issued full details on trim levels and standard equipment. With only two engine possibilities, the 2016 XF appears to give prospective buyers a lot fewer basic choices to make. Many options are available, however, which means the total price can easily shoot skyward.

Jaguar has totally redesigned its XF luxury sedan, again positioning it between the midsize XE and the full-size flagship XJ. Rather than four-cylinder and V8 engines, two versions of a supercharged V6 provide the power. Weight has dropped significantly, courtesy of new aluminum-intensive construction.

Pricing and Equipment

Starting at $52,895 (including $995 destination charge), the 2016 XF comes with either a 340- or 380-horsepower V6 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Premium, Prestige, and R Sport trim levels are available, with standard rear-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive.

Standard XF Premium equipment includes:

  • Xenon automatic headlights
  • Meridian 380-watt, 11-speaker audio
  • 40/20/40 split folding rear seat
  • Rearview camera
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Power-adjustable steering column
  • 18-inch alloy wheels

Performance Pros

Jaguar XF
  • All-wheel drive availability. Rear-drive is standard but AWD gives the XF a more secure feeling in inclement weather, when slippery pavement can spell trouble for a powerful machine propelled only by the back wheels.
  • Energetic acceleration from supercharged V6 engines, driving an automatic transmission that delivers smooth, practically flawless shifts. A diesel engine is expected later, promising both performance and laudable fuel economy. Gas engines are pretty thrifty, too, with an EPA estimate for the rear-drive XF of 22 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on the highway.
  • Jaguar claims perfectly balanced 50/50 weight distribution, which translates to neatly controlled, nimble handling and a confident, reassuring driving experience. Softer tuning than some competitors assures a smooth ride, too.

Performance Cons

Finding flaws in the performance of a modern-day Jaguar is like searching for gold in a massive mountain of random rocks. The best you can do is pick out one or two relatively minor issues, none of which is likely to influence a determined Jaguar buyer.

  • Supercharger whine. Few Jaguar fans are ever going to complain about noise or vibration from the engine, especially the kind that practically signals you’re savoring the elegant character of a British powertrain.
  • All-wheel drive models may yield more body lean in curves than some rivals, but the difference is more likely to be noticed on a racetrack than on regular roads.

Interior Pros

Jaguar XF
  • Greater interior space in this new generation, along with the switch to lightweight aluminum construction.
  • Vastly improved rear-seat space, turning the XF into a true four-passenger sedan, no longer burdened by the cramped back seat of its predecessor and suitable for adults all-around.
  • Jaguar has reined in the flamboyant touches of the 2009-15 XF, turning instead to a dashboard layout focused on modern touchscreens -- which are considerably better than the screens in the first generation.

Interior Cons

Just like the Performance issues noted above, the XF interior fails to reveal much in the way of trouble spots, beyond trivial nits to pick.

  • Some versions shun conventional instruments, in favor of an electronic display atop the steering wheel. Traditionalists might prefer real, older-type gauges.
  • Rotary gear selector. Yes, plenty of people give a virtual high-five to the gear-selector knob, which rises up from the central console. Malcontents (you know who you are, and I’m one) saw nothing wrong with the old-fashioned shift lever.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

Jaguar XF

Like its predecessor, the latest XF manages to distill the unabashed elegance and character of the bigger, familiar XJ sedan down to a four-door of more modest dimensions. Even better, a selection of advanced safety technology is available, including surround-view cameras, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, parking assist, and autonomous braking

The Least Pleasant Surprise

This is a toughie, so we’ll look into the future rather than the present. Even marques that have been known for decades as cars with character are losing their traditional identities. Even if the XF still maintains a welcome chunk of its traditional British personality, in this era of touchscreens and tech, rapid movement away from the past is inevitable. So, we have to wonder how far afield the next Jaguar will go.

The Bottom Line

We Jaguar fans generally have kind words to say about nearly any product that hails from the factory in Coventry. In the case of the XF, those words are objectively accurate. It’s a Jaguar. Case closed.
