How can I improve my XF Sportbrake's bumpy ride?

I have never been happy with the bumpy ride in my Jaguar XF Sportbrake and now I need to replace all four tyres. Please could you recommend the best tyres to give a softer ride?

The answer might be to change the wheels as well as the tyres. If the car is on 19 or 20-inch wheels, the tyres will be very low profile and that leaves little cushioning effect between the wheel rims and the road. Switching to 17 or 18=inch wheels with deeper profile tyres will help.

Good looking estate version of the XF. Gets self-levelling rear suspension as standard. As good to drive as the saloon. Usefully wide and square boot area.
