2012 Jaguar XF Features

8.0
Features

Part luxury sedan, part performance four-door, the Jaguar XF has all the features expected of a car in its price bracket, save for the arguable omission of all-wheel drive.

All XF sedans come with power features; cruise control; automatic climate control; a sunroof; leather upholstery; walnut trim; keyless ignition; satellite radio; Bluetooth; steering-wheel controls; heated front seats; and a navigation system.

High-end features are par for the Jaguar XF course; we'd listen to the 1200-watt Bowers Wilkins audio system any day.

The nav, audio and most climate functions are controlled via a large LCD touchscreen on the dash. 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.

Moving into higher trim levels brings ventilated front seats, upgraded leather, and a choice of ebony trim. XFR sedans also stock standard 20-inch wheels; adaptive cruise control; a Bowers & Wilkins audio system with HD radio; and a heated steering wheel.

Optional equipment includes a heated steering wheel and active cruise control. The 1200-watt Bowers & Wilkins system, available on non-XFR sedans, is one of the best-sounding audio setups the editors have heard in any vehicle, cost no object.
