Jaguar XF – the best car in Britain

The executive saloon, launched in 2008 by the rejuvenated Big Cat, is the Auto Express Driver Power ‘Car of the Decade’ after over 300,000 drivers voted on their favourite car.

Based on reliability, design, ease of use and even the dealership experience, the stylish saloon took the prestigious top title this week.

Graham Hope, Editor of Auto Express, said: “Over the past 10 years, more than 302,000 Auto Express readers have told us what they like and dislike about their cars, and no model has demonstrated such consistent all-round ability as the XF. It’s fantastic to drive and extremely well built – a tribute to the skilled workforce at Castle Bromwich.”

The Jaguar XF has won several national and international awards since its launch for both design and driving ability. The Jaguar XF has emerged as the strongest challenger to the German monopoly on premium executive saloons in recent years.

Since launch, it has won over 50 awards, including What Car? Best Executive Car 2011 and similar titles from Fleet News, Diesel Car, Fleet World and the JD Power Survey.

Priced from £30,950 on-the-road, the Jaguar XF has been upgraded to make it more efficient than ever.

The introduction of the 2.2-litre diesel engine from tomorrow means CO2 emissions will be lowered to 149g/km – the lowest CO2 emissions ever offered with the XF.

Jaguar says the XF will now be capable of travelling over 800 miles on a single tank of fuel with the new diesel engine as it looks to build on impressive sales of over 37,000 models since its launch.
