CARS.COM — Jaguar redesigned its XF sedan for 2016. The second-generation XF got bigger this year, which means more space for backseat passengers: There’s an additional 0.6 inches of legroom, 0.9 inches of knee room and 1.1 inches of rear headroom, according to Jaguar. For this Car Seat Check, we tested an XF S model with leather seats. Thanks to easy Latch anchors and more space, the 2016 XF accommodated car seats better than the outgoing version.
How many car seats fit in the second row? Two
What We Like
- The two sets of Latch anchors in the outboard seats sit under removable plastic covers and are easy to access. Three well-marked tether anchors are on the rear shelf behind the head restraints.
- Both the infant seat and rear-facing convertible installed easily and fit well; we did not have to move the front passenger seat forward to accommodate them.
- The forward-facing convertible went in easily and fit well.
- The backseat cushions are bolstered and hold the booster snugly in place. The outboard seat belt buckles are on stable bases, making them easy for kids to use independently.
