2010 Jaguar XF Car Review Video

The intriguing 2010 Jaguar XF, with its sleek, distinguished lines, robust engine, and highly customizable options, sets it apart from other luxury competitors.

Our host Jessi Lang road-tested the XF-Premium, which comes with a 5-Liter V8 engine with 385 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic with JaguarDrive selector, which uses a rotary knob for gear changes. Gas mileage is what you would expect in such a high-performance vehicle, you’ll be looking at 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.

Handling is firm and confident, acceleration is quick and speedier than you would hope for in any comparable sports sedan, and the suspension is even-tempered. You’ll have no trouble swiftly and firmly navigating the corners, or coming to a quick stop with solidly responsive brakes.

The interior features a rich wood trim and plush leather seating, a very elegant complement to its sensuous exterior stylings and thankfully can be found in all XF trims as standard. In addition, the navigation system and center console options are top-of-the-line and retain a fully cutting-edge aesthetic that Jaguar is known for.

The base XF starts off at $51,000 and our test car, the XF Premium with the Porfolio package, which includes 20″ wheels, power-seating, heated steering wheels, ebony wood trim interior, and a power rear windowshade, came in at $62,900.

Overall, the Jaguar XF is a force to be reckoned with. With such a sporty look and driving dynamic, all while retaining the necessary luxuriousness, the Jaguar XF may just have the edge on comparable vehicles in the sports sedan class, such as the Mercedes E-Class or the BMW 5-Series.

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
