Expert Quotes:

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


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.

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.

 

Conclusion

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

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.
