2015 Jaguar XF vs. Its Competition

2015 Jaguar XF
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2015 Jaguar XF is Jaguar's most competitive mid-sizer yet, putting it within striking distance of the segment's longtime leaders.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is now offered in its own vast array of models, including diesel, hybrid, and gas; it's also sold as a wagon, coupe, and cabriolet, as well as in hyper-performing AMG editions.

The BMW 5-Series offers turbocharged V-8 performance and pretty impressive handling, especially in M5 form, though it's grown a little bloated in size and techno features.

The Audi A6 and A7 have especially gorgeous styling, but their on-the-road handling and performance are more muted than the Jag's.

One final alternative is the Infiniti Q70 (formerly the M56); it's less glitzy inside, but has a level of athleticism that rivals that of the XF.

The A7 is handsome no matter how you slice it, but it's the brawn S7 and brutish RS7 that really gets our blood flowing.
