The XF’s impressive usability stems from its improved rear access and legroom, because despite the low roofline it’s easy to climb into the back. There’s acres of space once you’re in there, so even taller adults should be comfortable on longer journeys. Comfortable seats mean it’s easy to while away the miles, helping you feel fresh when you reach your destination.

Size

The XF is 1.88 metres wide, and the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class have narrower dimensions. It means there’s plenty of width in the back, so space across the rear bench should accommodate three adults for shorter trips.

It’s also slightly longer than its German counterparts, and slightly higher too. However, the narrow window opening and flowing roofline helps to elongate the car’s elegant shape, making it look lower and longer than it is. A sensible ride height makes it easy to get in and out of.

Leg room, head room & passenger space

Despite the tapering roofline towards the rear of the car, there’s ample headroom in the back, and with a large wheelbase, passenger space inside is maximised. 

Boot

At 540 litres, the XF boasts a bigger boot than the BMW 5 Series (520 litres) and the Audi A6 (530 litres). It’s a good shape, too, so should take nearly everything a company car driver or family can throw at it.

But if you need even more space, Jaguar offers a split-folding 40:20:40 rear seat as an option, which increases luggage room to 963 litres. Plus this configuration, with a foldable middle seat, helps accommodate long loads.

Towing

Petrol versions are able to tow a maximum 1,900kg, while the diesel XF models are rated at 2,000kg.
