2016 Jaguar XF 35T R-Sport AWD

Wonderful car to drive, lots of technology, good handling. Very comfortable and the ride is pretty smooth. Beautiful look, and very spacious. I enjoy it.


Nice but radio is problematic

I luv the look and feel but I’m scared it’s a lil problematic. The Bluetooth works with my playlist when it wants to. It’ll stop syncing to my music but continue to work with my calls. Kinda annoying. Also, the music quality in my Tahoe, Benz, and Camry was waaaaaaay better. Sometimes the engine sounds weird to me but I’m no mechanic. I’m nervous about the longevity of this car but time will tell. I still love it so far and would buy it again. I might just change the whole music system later on.


Am glad I stumbled onto this vehicle.

Clean and economical.... a real joy to drive. A very smooth ride. A smile on my face every time I drive it. Am very happy with its performance, and style.


Most powerful car I have ever owned

This car I dreamt about since I was a boy. Now that I am in the autumn of my life purchasing my dream car and still being able to drive it. This is one off my bucket list


Just bad

Had such high hopes for this car but it did not deliver. I bought though a service that lets me return if I don't like it, it lasted two days before I made that call. To be up front on my size I am a 31 year old male, 6ft tall, 185lbs and no injuries. -The gas and break pedal are insanely close to each other, a few times I went to stop and hit the break and gas at the same time. If you've never done that before let me spoil the ending, the car doesn't stop all that well if it has a powerful engine. -Bluetooth audio cuts out every few minutes for maybe half a second and it's one of the most annoying things. This is a known issue with a lot of android phones and newer iPhones, quick Google search will show many forum posts on this. -Uncomfortable seats. I drove it on the highway for about 30-40 min and my back was killing me. I adjusted the seat before the return trip and same thing. -The engine is great, nice and powerful when you can hit the gas pedal on its own. The issue I have is the transmission, it's an old school sequential automatic and when you are going to a stop you can feel every single downshift until it hits first. Normally you would program the shifts to a lower rpm so it doesn't jerk at every shift down but Jaguar must have forgot physics.


Shockingly Great Value Used!

The XF 35t (6 cyl) is crazy quick, nimble, smooth and quiet. The interior is elegant and extremely comfortable. Luxury AND performance. Not a single problem with the car through 65K miles - reliable. Economic at greater than 25 mpg (premium fuel). My only issue is a rather small trunk. Best car bargain possible if purchased used.


2016 XF R-Sport

Well equipped vehicle for the cost. Comfortable, incredibly quick and agile handling. For a supercharged V6 the fuel economy is an unbelievable 6.9Litres/100Km... or 34 MPG (US) 40 MPG (imperial). Meridian sound system is excellent, the interior is well executed, but not right at the cutting edge, nor is it truly traditional. This is a sports car in performance, with a refined ride.


Good to be owned for a while

Fun to drive car, but a lil bit easy to get bored. Suspension is super soft which makes it drive like a boat, so it's comfortable driving a long distance.


2016 Jaguar XF R Sport

The 2016 XF is the first year of the latest generation and is all new inside and out. Perfect balance of power and economy, ride and handling. Fun to drive and is a real head-turner! Has all of the options that you need without going overboard.


3 years and still love it!

This is the best vehicle I have owned so far. I knew the bad rap the Jaguars and Land Rovers got in the past, but having three new Land Rovers since 2012, thought I would give the Jaguar a try. I have been more than pleased with everything about it. I have the XF S version which is the sports package with the 380 HP Supercharged V6 which is like a rocket. Given the aluminum architecture and handling characteristics of this car, it drive like it's on rails on tight corners and country roads. This car was purchased off the showroom floor and has every option that was available in 2016. The interior is beautiful, multiple drive dynamics available, well finished, and well laid out. The exterior has an excellent fit and finish and I found no flaws in it at all. In three years I have had only scheduled service required, in addition to two O2 sensors that went bad. No big problem, as the car has a 5 year warranty and also 5 years included maintenance. Finally, I used to buy a new car every year or less...saying I have owned this one three years is a really big indicator of how much I love this car.
