Jaguar XF is being launched as a sports sedan, and it has a 240 horsepower to support that claim. Jaguar created the XF at its Whitley Development and Design Center in the United Kingdom. And while critics claim that the XF certainly doesn't break the Jaguar mold, it definitely replicates the luxury and power that Jaguar has always been known for. Originally titled the C-XF (for concept XF), the sports sedan has veered slightly from the classic Jaguar design. The XF is built more in the style of a sports coupe, rather than a sedan. However, it does have four doors, putting it in the sedan category. Jaguar seems to be taking its cues from Mercedes, who has been developing similar vehicles for several years.
Most critics claim that the XF fails to attract a younger set of consumers. Critics do not make sense as young buyers are not the target market for executive cars.
Test drivers have said that the Jaguar XF is incredibly powerful, but also amazingly comfortable – Make sense.
It’s an executive Jag which is more likely to feature in a golf club car park than on the bank robbing circuit. But it’s been designed by the man behind the Aston Martin DBS, Aston Martin Vanquish and Jaguar XK. And when you see interior and the way the air-con vents open at the flick of a button you’ll immediately fall for it. A stunning-looking car with an even better interior.
The Jaguar XF raised incredible expectations as the car which – along with the Jaguar XK sports car - would blueprint the manufacturer’s style direction and help attract younger buyers to the historic British icon. And it has met those expectations in spades. Where previously the mix of fresh design and retro has been tilted heavily in the favour of the latter the Jaguar XF is thoroughly modern – and unmistakeably a jag. Jaguar designer Ian Callum aimed to combine the look of a coupe with the greater practicality of a saloon – and the car’s looks certainly meet the coupe end of the bargain.
