Premium class has its own laws. Business Class has been long occupied by Germans – Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW, – and any others were not allowed there. The economy here is not working: Cadillac, Citroen and other Koreans tried to beat the price, but in vain. As in this cruel world could survive a car like Jaguar XF? We decided to find out.
The front view especially succeeded: cheeky, but at the same time aristocratic grille, side by side with conspiratorial narrowed headlamps.
Oh, the interior cannot be said. On the one hand, there is a touch-sensitive keys interior lighting, sliding the puck selector “automatic” and “interactive” deflectors ventilation – when the ignition they are hiding. But it is difficult to surprise.

On the one hand, there’s good stuff, and the front panel is completely “rolled up” into the skin. On the other – the control panel windows from Volvo S60 15-year-old and multimedia system with primitive graphics. Armchairs amorphous, landing ideal, but there is too little space on the back.

Jaguar’s saloon is a weak spot and a leading indicator of old age.
340-horsepower supercharged V6. Pulls great: up to hundreds XF with this engine accelerates in 6.4 seconds. And the engine is not satisfied with the fit, in response to each press of the gas – Jaguar accelerates smoothly and quietly.
But with gearbox problems begin. Car even in sport mode is still sleepy as lemur.
