The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Jaguar XF is an easy car to love. It performs as well as anything in the class--and has unexpected glamorous touches that will win over converts. The 5-Series sedans and wagons aren't the most practical or the best values in their class, but they're very enjoyable to drive.
