2023 Jaguar XF
Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2023 Jaguar XF Overview

|2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder||296 hp||295 lb-ft||25 mph|
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The XF is a midsize luxury sedan with commendable room for five. The tradeoff is a relatively dinky trunk measuring 10.5 cubic feet, although folding the seat opens up nearly double that.
The XF makes a strong showing here with standard adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, surround-view cameras, driver alertness monitoring, and front and rear parking sensors.
The SE trims add automatic high beams and speed limit recognition. A head-up display is available on the R-Dynamic SE only for $1,050.
The standard infotainment system for all trims includes an 11.4-inch touchscreen, a 12-speaker Meridian sound system, navigation, HD and satellite radio, two USB ports, wireless phone charging, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The SE models also come with built-in access to Amazon Alexa, streaming services, and phone data. A 16-speaker Meridian system can be added to these trims for $600.
The XF starts out with plenty of desirable features, including leather upholstery, heated 12-way power front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a power trunk lid, automatic wipers, and paddle shifters. The exterior receives power-folding side mirrors, rear fog lights, and 18-inch bright-finish wheels. There are no option packages for the S.
The SE adds driver memory settings, 19-inch wheels, and the aforementioned safety and connectivity upgrades. Windsor leather upholstery and ventilated 16-way power front seat are available together for $1,750. Extended Windsor leather interior trim costs an extra $1,800, and genuine wood trim can be added for $400. Heated rear seats are a $500 standalone option.
The SE's Convenience Pack ($1,250) furnishes a power-adjustable steering wheel, soft-close doors, a power rear sunshade, two additional USB ports, and Activity Key — a water and shockproof wristband that functions as a key fob. The $700 Cold Climate Pack adds a heated steering wheel, headlight washers, and a heated windshield. There's also a Dynamic Handling Pack ($1,350) with an adaptive suspension, selectable driving modes, red brakes calipers, and a rear spoiler. Finally, the $550 Black Exterior Pack adds gloss black trim outside.
The R-Dynamic SE carries the high-output engine and AWD, plus sportier trim throughout. Other equipment and options packages are shared with the regular SE.
The 2023 Jaguar XF offers strong value no matter how it's equipped. With its extra power, all-weather grip, and still-reasonable price, the R-Dynamic SE is our pick of the three.
