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.

We have check others and no doubt this is the best! From the prompt and reliable agent Angie to the honest dealer David, everything is 10/10. Other platform not only charges transactions fee the dealer will squeeze you below market rate.
