  • Jaguar XF Sportbrake (2012 - 2015)
    Good looking estate version of the XF. Gets self-levelling rear suspension as standard. As good to drive as the saloon. Usefully wide and square boot area.
  • Jaguar XF (2008 - 2015)
    Wonderful and bespoke feeling interior. Amazingly quiet and refined. More economical 2.2 diesel from 2011. Navigation not fitted as standard on most models.
