The XF is a four-door saloon featuring the new JaguarDrive SelectorTM with the option of manual selection through Jaguar Sequential Shift. The XF is available with a 2.7-litre V6 twin-turbocharged diesel, a 3.0-litre V6 petrol and a naturally aspirated and supercharged 4.2 V8 petrol.

UK managing director Geoff Cousins said: ‘The new Jaguar XF combines the emotional appeal of a contemporary, modern Jaguar with all the rational appeal of a spacious five-seater sports saloon with high levels of standard equipment, innovative functional features and competitive pricing. The other excellent news for customers is of course the residual values that experts are quoting for XF.’
CAP and EurotaxGlass’s have will be quoting residual value after 36 months/36,000 miles of 50% of original value for the 2.7-litre diesel Luxury model. These figures mean the XF 2.7-litre diesel Luxury is best-in-class against rivals BMW, Mercedes, Lexus and Audi. CAP has concluded that the nearest rival, the BMW 525d SE will retain 45.3% of its original value over the same period.
Martin Ward, manufacturer relationship manager for CAP Motor Research said: ‘The new Jaguar XF has not only caught up with its nearest competitors, but has now overtaken them. Jaguar has proved that a well built, well specified and well priced car that has fantastic styling can break the mould, and should be a success the world over.’
EurotaxGlass’s figure of 50% for the XF 2.7-litre diesel Luxury is best-in-class ahead of the BMW 525d at 48% and the Audi A6 3.0 V6 TDI Quattro SE at a rating of 49%. The XF 3.0-litre V6 petrol is expected to retain 45% of its original value making it best-in-class over the BMW 530i, the Audi A6 3.2 FSI and the Mercedes-Benz E350.
Kevin Gaskell, CEO of EurotaxGlass’s, said: ‘The whole XF package is class-leading. With an array of impressive standard equipment, competitive pricing and outstanding styling, we have concluded that it will be a desirable car with best-in-class residual values of 50%.’
