The Car Connection Expert Review

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.

TheCarConnection.com read all the competitive reviews on the new Jaguar XF to produce this conclusive review, and to give our enthusiastic approval of the new Jaguar XF. TheCarConnection.com also drove the car to be able to give you an expert opinion on the vehicle, and to help you figure out the truth where other car reviews might differ.

Jaguar has been in turmoil, with steep sales declines and its recent sale by Ford to India’s Tata. But you’d never tell from the 2009 Jaguar XF, the brand’s new mid-size luxury sedan. It replaces the stuffy X-Type with a svelte new shape that’s as modern and cutting-edge as any sedan in its class--and it sports an interior worthy of a Virgin Airlines cabin, with aluminum and wood trim and a techno-groovy shifter knob.

Performance is stealthy with the base V-8 and stunning with the optional supercharged V-8. Both switch gears via a six-speed automatic with shifter paddles. The XF turns in surprisingly good fuel-economy numbers, but sacrifices rear-seat room to its coupelike styling.

Crash test data isn’t available yet, but the 2009 Jaguar XF sits at the top of its class for safety equipment and high-end audio and entertainment features.

I purchased this car in May of 2008 after having a 2000 S Type previously. I thought the S type was great but the XF was awesome in more comfort, handling and performance. The only fault I find with the design... + More »
