The new Jaguar XF has been given a comprehensive going over. For starters, it is now available with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. This is the most economical power plant and competes against the ever-popular BMW 520d. Jaguar's eight-speed cruiser produces 188bhp, returns a combined average of 52.3mpg, and hits 62mph in roughly 8.0 seconds. Not quite as frugal as the 5 Series then, which has virtually identical performance.

The Jaguar XF's interior has been tweaked too, so motorists now park themselves on revised leather seats. Very nice. Secondly, the switches are more finger-friendly and it is easier to interpret their function. There are a few more gadgets too, including: automatic high-beam assist, adaptive cruise control with intelligent braking, and a system that activates the hazard lights during hard braking. This minimises the chances of rear impacts.

The new Jaguar XF also has revised bodywork to keep it looking fresh. The wings and front bumper have been re-sculpted to maintain a youthful appearance, and the imposing bonnet now has a more menacing power bulge. These modifications, plus the mechanical and specification enhancements, improve what is already one of the most desirable vehicles in its class. It makes the opposition look restrained and predicable, so long live the mighty XF.
