2021 Jaguar XF vs. Its Competition

2021 Jaguar XF
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The 2021 Jaguar XF takes a simplified approach to a rough mid-size luxury class, with just turbo-4 power and one body style.

The BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class offer multiple engines, additional body styles, and high-performance models.

The A6 is supplemented by the A7 hatchback and two performance models, and all the Germans offer more technology.

The Cadillac CT5 also has multiple performance models, though like the XF, it faces an uphill battle against the Germans.

The Volvo S90 aims more at simplified luxury with a unique Scandinavian style.
