The new Jaguar XF is a good looking machine and designed by Ian Callum, one of the most revered car designers of this era.

It has a 2-liter turbo petrol that produces 221 kW of power and 400 Nm of torque. Its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h and it consumes 6.8 liters per 100 km. For information on the XF sportbrake diesel be sure to watch Amelia’s earlier review.

How good the Jaguar XF is, really depends on how much money you are willing to spend.
