Review
I have owned a Jaguar XF for almost 7 years. I must say the XF is quick , quiet and spacious. The back seat and the trunk are roomy. It definitely delivers the excitement , composure and the comfort. The transmission provides smoother acceleration and delivers better fuel economy and fewer emissions , in tandem with the start/stop system.

Selective drive modes , change gears manually via steering mounted paddles setting cruise speed with your thumb.

The cabin architecture is clean and unfussy , illuminated sill tread plates and window controls add to the haloed ambience.

The touch infotainment system provides full command over a wealth of features including audio , climate and navigation.

A distinctive design enhanced by a dynamic drive and the latest technologies.

The lightweight front double wishbone and the rear integral link suspension work together to bring up the level of ride comfort and handling.

A press on the start button and the engine purrs to life , opening up air conditioning vents , rises up gear knob and the big cat shakes off its slumber. Just a touch to wake this cat up !

This car is designed to do anything at the flick of a finger or the mere touch of it. From shifting gears to engaging the parking brakes to switching on the cabin lights.

What I like
- Stunning body curves and aerodynamic design
- The nice design cohesion of the LED slant of the headlights at the end
- The iconic Jaguar front grille
- The Air-con vents that opens up when engine is on and closes up when is off
- The gear knob that rises up when the engine is on , that enhanced the driving
control in the palm of my hand
- The half-moon button parking brake mounted on the central console

What I do not like
- High maintenance price

Review
Test drove this new larger version of XE....

First looks, its has the exact curves and contour of the XE, except that this XF has larger wheelbase, longer and wider body than its little sibling. The 18 inches wheels matches perfectly, not really a need to upgrade further. Electric tailgate is standard compared to the earlier XF that doesn't have at all.

The boomerang LED DRL looks smart which is the Jags new signature look, similar to other makes having their own.

Interior is a semi luxury version of the upcoming facelift of XJ. Fine and smooth leather seatings as standard

The 8 inches screen which comes with navigation serves as a clear view for any on the road to watch the road as well as the map for directions (even that the map talks back to you).

Electric seats are standard which comes with passengers too (if I didn't recall wrongly) which is cool.

The rear seats are reclined nicely to fit us, Asians back for better comfort, similar to XE where its definitely nice to sit on for long drives + perhaps a short nap.

The drive....When you START the engine, the quietness of the cat purrs smoothly where you may think "Power not there?", try revving a little and you will feel the punch of the 240 horses rushing to go forward.

This cat with 240 horses is certainly comes with good power, pickup is almost instantaneous compared to its smaller sibling.

Cornering is EXCELLENT I must say despite its longer and wider body. Jag also considered many safety features that I must say is a good consideration to city driving like here.

Overall, if you want power and luxury, this is the car, XF to get in comparison to his competitors like Mercedes E200, BMW 5 series or Audi A6.

What I like
Electric Tailgate as standard
Good reclining backseats for the comfort of rear passengers
8 inches full color touchscreen
Whopping of having 240 horses at your disposal
Safety features enhancements

What I do not like
Price tag of S$ 226k (As of 9th Feb) too high

Review
Took some time to test drive the new Jaguar XF, and i found it to be a very refined drive.

looks wise, the jag shares a lot of similarities to the rest of the jag family, so the familiar lines are all there. Its still a handsome looking car. Inside, its all very sensible, although not super luxurious by any account.

the car is a bit of a head-scratcher to drive. On one hand, the engine can be a bit of a turn off. There's a noticable engine drone at low speeds especially, and the engine isn't particularly 'fun' by any account. Although i suppose it wasn't made for that. On the other hand, the rest of the car is superb. The ride is super comfortable, handling feels good. All in all a good, refined car that could do with a sweeter engine.

What I like
- ride quality is top notch
- good look
- transmission is quite good
- well put together

What I do not like
- engine is droney
