after a short while in the wilderness, Jaguar revitalised its line up with the original XF back in 2007.
With the new X260 version being introduced in 2015, we take a look at this luxury mid-size as it hits the forecourts of our trusted dealers.
If ever there were two words that perfectly summed up the Jaguar XF, it would be these.
With a used Jaguar XF starting as low as just £6,990 on findandfundmycar.com (at the time of writing), it is the epitome of an affordable, second-hand luxury saloon.
First released in 2008, the XF has played a huge part in Jaguar's success as a modern yet heritage-rich brand. Combining prestige, power and performance at a reasonable price – this really is a car you can be proud of.
Because it exudes confidence – not cockiness.
It's fierce – not flashy.
It's style and substance – not style over substance.
It's up there with the best of them.
And it's not hard to see why.
Let's start with its stylish exterior. Combining sleek lines, luscious lights and a ferocious front grill; the XF comprises a series of subtle design and styling elements that really set it apart from the competition.
The same impeccable standards can be found throughout the XF's interior, too: a classy, comfortable cabin provided for both driver and passengers alike.
And the XF truly comes into its own the minute you start the engine.
With a selection of excellent engine specs and an equally impressive chassis, the entire XF range provides an enjoyable ratio of power, performance and prowess. But it's the sportier XFR model makes it our undoubted pick of the bunch thanks to its direct injection, supercharged V8 engine giving you a truly unforgettable driving experience.
Chomping at the bit to buy one? There are a few things to look out for when buying a second-hand model – as you would when looking at any used car. When test driving an XF, listen out for squeaks and rattles within the interior – as well as temperamental warning lights, touchscreen sat-nav and air conditioning systems.
It's also worth noting that certain 2010 XF models were recalled because of an issue surrounding engines not being supplied with the right fuel levels to run. Always check to see if the XF you're considering buying is one of these models - and make sure the correct work has been carried out if it is!
