The 2009 Jaguar XF has all the features you’d expect to find in a high-end luxury sedan--and some that you don’t find even in the most exclusive ultra-luxury vehicles.

Edmunds.com details the three different trim levels available, starting with the Luxury edition, which comes with 18-inch wheels, a sunroof, leather interior, 10-way power front seats, and a premium sound system with an auxiliary audio jack. The Premium Luxury package “adds 19-inch wheels, heated 16-way power front seats, upgraded leather, a navigation system with voice activation, and keyless ignition/entry,” while the Supercharged edition gets the 420-hp V-8, 20-inch wheels, “an active suspension (dubbed ‘CATS’),” and satellite radio.

Optional equipment includes a heated steering wheel and active cruise control.

Automobile says the “long list of electronic driver aids” includes “voice control for audio and telephone, a blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, a tire-pressure monitor, and an electronic parking brake.”

Order the upmarket audio system and you get a 440-watt “favorite among audiophiles,” Kelley Blue Book adds. “The Bowers & Wilkins sound system has precise and crisp sound output at any volume level.”

The 2009 Jaguar XF’s navigation system also incorporates iPod/iPhone control for music, Motor Trend says. A tap on the touchscreen and you’re controlling the flow of tunes through a target on the screen that Motor Trend says “was inspired by The Who's Quadrophenia album cover.” Popular Mechanics likes the navigation touchscreen, but points out that “it does require more pressure than other manufacturers’ systems, and that can be annoying at times.”


Conclusion

Lots of high-end equipment makes the 2009 Jaguar XF feel like a home theater--and its in-car touchscreen is far superior to BMW’s iDrive controller.

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.
