Jaguar XF 3.0 S/C V6 Premium Luxury Review

Introduction

When it was first unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007, the XF garnered much admiration for its swoopy elegant lines that instantly made its competitors in the luxury sedan segment suddenly old school.

Now, five years later, the old cat is still one of the sexiest luxury sedans on the market. But with their competitors going down the efficiency and low carbon emissions route, Jaguar has unveiled a new powerplant and transmission to keep the old cat up to date.

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.
