Jaguar is a consistently better performer than Audi, BMW or Mercedes in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.

In the 2020 poll, Jaguar again trounced its premium rivals by finishing a solid 12th out of 30 manufacturers, while the pre-facelift XF placed a credible 47th out of 100 cars. 

There’s lots of safety kit as standard in the XF. Even the entry-level Prestige model comes fitted with lane departure warning and autonomous braking - these are options on the Audi A6 or BMW 5 Series. In the 2015 round of Euro NCAP crash testing, this kit and the solid body shell helped the XF earn a full five-star safety rating. 

Warranty

The XF comes with a three-year/unlimited mileage warranty, which is standard for the sector, although Audi's similar cover has a 60,000-mile distance limit. There’s also three years’ roadside assistance with Jag's policy, so if the car should break down inside the standard warranty period, you’ll be recovered without quibble.

Servicing

Jaguar offers interest-free payment options for when you need to service your XF. You can opt to spread payment over a month, or equal installments over 3, 6 or 9 months.
