2014 Jaguar XF review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2014 Jaguar XF?

The 2014 Jaguar XF is a luxury sports sedan with seating for five. It is available in five trim levels: I4 T, V6 SC, Supercharged, XFR and XFR-S. It competes against rivals like the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6.

What's New on the 2014 Jaguar XF?

The new XFR-S trim is available in limited quantities, and the newly available Vision Pack features intelligent high beams, adaptive front lights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and blind spot monitor. Keyless entry and voice activation for the navigation, climate and audio systems are now part of the Premium Pack. A Performance Pack is available for the XFR model, which offers the Sport exhaust and chassis and brake upgrades that are found on the new XFR-S model.

How Does the 2014 Jaguar XF Compare With Other Luxury Sports Sedans?

As is common with most luxury sports sedans, the base price jumps dramatically when you start adding some of the available options. The XF offers performance and pricing similar to the BMW 528i. At the base level, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class gives you a much more powerful engine for just a few thousand dollars more.

What Features on the 2014 Jaguar XF Are Most Important?

The 2014 XF comes standard with a 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but drivers have several other options. There's the 340-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6; 470-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8; 510-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 and even a 550-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 depending on the trim level you choose. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Standard features include 18-inch wheels, LED taillights, a trunk lid spoiler, four tailpipes, leather upholstery, heated front seats and wood trim. Available amenities include 19- or 20-inch wheels, automatic high-beam headlights, ventilated front seats, a navigation system and a power rear sunshade.

Standard safety features include side-impact airbags and active head restraints for the front seats, antilock brakes and an electronic stability control system. Optional safety amenities include a backup camera, adaptive cruise control, a blind spot warning system and a collision warning system.

Should I Buy the 2014 Jaguar XF?

The Jaguar XF has a sleek and sophisticated cabin design, sharp styling and plenty of cargo space in the trunk, but the backseat is a little cramped and road noise may be a bit distracting.

Reliable, stylish and very comfortable

I am happy that I purchased this vehicle. It's stylish and comfortable. My entire family can ride without it being overcrowded. The best car I've ever owned.

5.0

This is my second Jaguar and it won't be my last.

If you are willing to maintain the Jaguar XF to factory specs, this car will easily take you to well over a 100k miles. My first Jaguar traveled 122k miles over a 10 year period with very minimal down time. The cost was no more then my other car. In my opinion, if you want luxury with a stylish leather interior and swede accents, NOT PLASTIC, then this is the car for you...

5.0

Outstanding vehicle from bumper to bumper.

The lines of the XF are superb; sleek, flows gently, in a forward looking view. The interior has grained comfortable leather seats. The choreographed ac/heat vents were a pleasant surprise. The supercharged 3.0 engine purrs and then roars, a lot of fun driving around the city or on the open road.
