Taller drivers may find headroom up front tight

The lack of back-seat headroom in the 2014 Jaguar XF sedans serves as a reminder that there's no style without sacrifice; but at the same time, there is surprisingly little else to gripe about in this sport sedan. And it especially impresses with its lavish materials and smooth, quiet ride.

Front seats in the XF are supportive and highly adjustable (18 ways in the XFR), and they have adequate leg and head room for tall drivers to find comfort--even though the position is a little low and the sunroof tends to steal a couple of inches of headroom.

No matter where you're sitting, the seats are supple and well-contoured, and you're surrounded by rich leather and other glitzy materials, from walnut to aluminum. Leather trim is double-stitched, and LED lighting mixes with choice wood and metallic trim to turn the cabin into a most atmospheric space. The console and doors have enough small-item storage, too, even a deep cup holder. And overall, the lavish, warm appointments in the 2014 XF continue to impress--particularly against the more sterile trims and materials you'll find in many German sport sedans. Look around, and the instrument panel and center console are dressed in aluminum finishes and wood veneers, along with contrast stitching.

The significant weakness of the XF interior is that the swoopy roofline does cut headroom in back. With packaging that's closer to a four-door coupe than a family sedan; getting in and out is perhaps a little harder than it should be, and we don't see those much over six feet tall being able to fit comfortably back there (it's definitely smaller than a Mercedes E-Class or BMW 5-Series).

But there's still plenty to swoon over, and those rear seatbacks do fold down for access to the 17.7-cubic-foot trunk.

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.
