Our Cars: Jaguar XF 3.0D

The facelifted XF may look sharper than before but Jaguar still suffers from an image problem that often sees it labelled as an 'old man's car'.
Six months with our Jaguar XF has flown by and after almost 10,000 miles we're saying a sad goodbye to the luxury saloon.
Until recently the XF came with big V6 or V8 engines but with fuel economy becoming increasingly crucial, Jaguar has introduced a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel.
The XF comes with Jaguar's touchscreen system which controls most things on board. It sounds good in theory but can be frustrating to use.
After our short summer break it's back to work for both me and the XF. Which means more motorway miles and a chance to improve the fuel economy.
As we finally get some hot weather I'm stuck behind the wheel of the XF but it does mean I get to enjoy the ventilated seats.
Having covered almost 12,000 miles in just over 12 months our Jaguar is due it first service so it's booked into the local dealer.
The XF isn't short of luxury features with an options list that you could spend hours on, so here are my favourite extras on our Jaguar.
I've been driving the XF for two months now and while racking up the miles it's proved to be a mightily impressive luxury saloon.
Jaguar revised the XF saloon last year with some significant changes both to the outside and the interior. So what's new?
Thanks to some unique details the XF has carved its own path when it comes to style and manages to stand out from other executive cars.
While we were sad to see our Audi A6 go the disappointment hasn't lasted too long as we welcome the impressive Jaguar XF.
