The Jaguar XF has slowly evolved, from the buggy first generation car, and now yet another set of improvements and changes have been made to it, for the 2014 model-year. We note minor changes in its trim grades, two new paint finish options on the aesthetic side, and a detuned version of the 2.2-liter diesel engine is the main point of interest (for company car drivers, especially).
Jaguar claims a 4.9 l/100km (57.7 mpg UK) figure, and carbon emissions of 129 g/km. The “ECO2 engine,” as it’s referred to, also gets an Intelligent Stop-Start system as standard, and this contributes to the low declared figure.
The rest of the range remains untouched, and the only other notable feature they’ve added for 2014 is “extended navigation,” which “more focused and intuitive mapping as well as iGO primo.”
This doesn’t change much, so if you were going to buy an XF, you’re going to anyway, but if you were unsure of whether to take it or one of its many rivals, this model year revision has definitely not made the car more appealing – again, unless you’re a company car driver looking to trade your ageing BMW 5-Series in for something different.
