2021 Jaguar XF

Pros: Fine mix of ride comfort and handling prowess; classy interior trimmings; distinctive luxury character; all-wheel drive available; cavernous trunk

Cons: Some visibility issues; some testers find the exhaust note almost too subdued, given the athletic overall character

CG Says: The 2021 Jaguar XF has revised styling inside and out, along with an almost $7,000 price reduction for the base model. There is a new infotainment system that can receive over-the-air software updates. Keyless entry and wireless cell-phone charging are now standard, with Clear Exit Monitor newly available. The supercharged V6 engine option and the Sportbrake station wagon have been dropped. The XF is a premium midsize sedan. The sole engine choice is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 247 hp or 296 hp with an 8-speed automatic. Cars with the 247-hp have rear-wheel drive and the 296-hp engine includes all-wheel drive. In addition to the expected luxury trimmings, available features include heated and ventilated front seats, camera rearview mirror, power-closing doors, hands-free power trunk lid, faux suede headliner, and an adaptive damping suspension. Safety features include autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot alert, and rear cross-traffic alert. The Jaguar XF makes a fine case for itself as an alternative to the usual German midsize luxury/sport sedans. Its lightweight aluminum construction makes it feel lithe and athletic from the driver’s seat, and also contributes to respectable fuel economy numbers.
