What car would you recommend for comfort, reliability and luggage capacity?

Our 6 year old Jaguar XF Portfolio, which we like, is due for a change. Annual mileage is around 8000 - mostly short journeys, but 4/5 times a year 700 mile return trips. Main requirement is comfort on the longer trips, followed by reliability and luggage capacity similar to present car.

Get a Jaguar XE with the 2.0 240PS Ford petrol engine, 8-speed auto and the smallest wheels with deepest profile tyres. Not a diesel.

Wonderful and bespoke feeling interior. Amazingly quiet and refined. More economical 2.2 diesel from 2011. Navigation not fitted as standard on most models.
Strong alternative to the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Superb ride comfort and fuel economy. Eight-speed automatic is excellent. Interior is much improved from 2019.
