an available adapter that allows you to operate your iPod or iPhone (music only) via the central touchscreen.
Motor Trend

The infotainment and climate-control systems are only accessible through submenus that are byzantine at best and perverse at worst.
Car and Driver

Many functions, from the heated seats to fan-direction controls, can be found only in touch-screen menus on the central dash display.

Many simple tasks require performing quite a few "virtual button" presses, and drilling down through several menu screens to access some audio functions.
Consumer Guide


The 2011 Jaguar XF is a sport sedan, with all the features of a luxury sedan. Standard equipment on the $52,000 Jaguar XF Luxury includes a sunroof; automatic climate control; a keyless entry and ignition system; an electronic parking brake; leather upholstery and walnut trim; heated front seats; Sirius Satellite Radio, a six-CD changer, and a navigation system all controlled via a large LCD touch screen in the dash or by voice commands; and Bluetooth connectivity.

The $57,000 Premium Luxury model adds the 5.0-liter V-8, blind-spot monitors, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and ventilated front seats, while the Portfolio edition offers the 5.0-liter V-8 with distinct leather and suede upholstery, along with ebony dash trim. The $80,000 XFR fits the supercharged V-8; 20-inch wheels; a heated steering wheel; adaptive cruise control; and a Bowers & Wilkins audio system with HD and Sirius Satellite Radio and integration for audio players.

Optional equipment includes a heated steering wheel and active cruise control, while the available 525-watt Bowers & Wilkins system is one of the best-sounding audio setups the editors have heard in any vehicle, cost no object. For 2011, even the base model gets standard Burl Walnut trim, while a heated windshield is optional on all models. The JaguarSense glovebox release—a trick feature liked by many—has been replaced with a standard button.

The XF's navigation system also incorporates iPod/iPhone control for music. A tap on the touch screen and you're controlling the flow of tunes through a target on the display; however some drivers will be disappointed to see that many of the climate controls have been moved to screen-only positions as well.

Conclusion

The 2011 Jaguar XF has all the features you'd expect to find in a high-end luxury sedan—plus a sound system that will woo even die-hard audiophiles.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
