2017 Jaguar XF vs. Its Competition

2017 Jaguar XF S
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

A wave of new Jaguars continues with the new mid-size XF, a car that was new in 2008 and hamstrung by the company's split from former parent Ford.

This time around, it's not letting any technical shortcomings keep it from taking on some of the most accomplished rivals in the car world.

The Audi A6 is one of the older cars in its class, but you'd never know it from its capable chassis, updated drivetrains, excellent safety scores, and command of tasteful design language.

The BMW 5-Series is new this year, with a long roll-out planned for its wide range of drivetrains and body styles.

The new Benz E-Class has a trio of powertrains now, capped by the hulking E63 AMG.

Finally, there's an exceptional car from America on this list, too—the Cadillac CTS, blessed with excellent design and handling, with a storming CTS-V variant.
