New cars: What the critics say

Jaguar XF

Jaguar XF
Price: $58,000–$68,000

AutoWeek
“Jaguar is one sick cat,” and the company is pinning all its hopes on the XF. Reinvented from the bottom up, this all-new Jag says goodbye forever to retro styling. A display screen serves as the main control for all audio, navigation, and communication functions. Standard features include split-zone climate controls, leather-only upholstery, and power-adjustable front seats.

Car & Driver
The XF finally abandons the traditional Jaguar look, eliminating the low rear deck in favor of a Lexus-like high deck lid. Another huge departure is the roomy back seat. The emphasis here is on comfort and luxury, and the “most novel feature” is a gear selector that rises from the front console when the engine starts and rotates to let you select transmission modes.

Birmingham Post (England)
Jaguar still knows how to create a sensation, and the stunning, futuristic XF is proof. “Almost coupe-like in profile,” this four-door, five-seat sedan features a wide mesh front grille, sweeping headlamps, four exhausts, voice control for audio and telephone operations, five cup holders, and, at night, discreet, blue-strip interior lighting to “create an exclusive feel.”
