Expert Review

8.0

Overall Rating


The 2020 Jaguar XF gets some major changes in terms of trims and features on offer, to keep it in-line with the other sedans in the segment. The Most note-worthy change for 2020, comes with the addition of a new Checkered Flag trim in the XF’s lineup that celebrates Jaguar’s rich racing heritage and legacy. To please the nerds and the tech-savvy generation, Jaguar has standardized features like Android Auto and Apple Car Play in the XF and refreshed the Infotainment system as well. You do get additional safety features as standard and new color schemes.

Engines remain unchanged from 2019 and the XF continues to come in AWD and RWD configurations, depending on the trim chosen. A ZF sourced 8 Speed Automatic transmission does duty in all the versions of the Jag. Prices for the 2020 Jaguar XF starts from $51,100 for the base Premium Trim and goes over $68,000 for the top of the Line “S”, without adding options.

2020 Jaguar XF Features

9.9/10

Jaguar has revised the trim lineup for the 2020 XF and has introduced changes to the same. The XF now gets a new Checkered Flag trim and a list of additional features as standard. The 25t trims of the New XF get a 2.0L Turbocharged 247hp motor while the 30t trim gets a 296hp motor respectively. The Top of the Line S trim gets a 3.0L Supercharged V6 that belts out 380hp. All the trims, except for the Checkered Flag and the S, get an option of RWD while the trims mentioned here, are just available in the AWD configuration only.

Which Trim to buy?

The Prestige Trim in the 30t configuration makes the best sense, courtesy of its decently powerful motor and a good set of creature comforts. With Apple Car Play and Android Auto coming in standard across the range, we do feel that the 30t trim is the most VFM trim of the lot.

2020 Jaguar XF Engine and Performance

8.7/10

for 2020, Jaguar has revised the engine lineup for the XF. The biggest difference comes from the fact that the Diesel Motor, will no longer continue to exist for the XF in the US market. As for the engines, you have a total of 3 engines to choose from in either an RWD configuration or AWD. The 2.0L 247hp Turbocharged unit can be found doing duty in the base premium trim and the prestige trim. Customers going for the Prestige trim, also have the option of going for a much powerful iteration of the 2.0L unit that belts out 296hp and 295lbs.-ft. Of torque. The same 296hp unit can be found doing duty on the All-New Checkered Flag trim as well.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan has 8 Speed Automatic Transmission

Speaking of the Top of the Line XF S, Jaguar has embodied a 3.0L Supercharged V6 unit for the same that delivers a massive 380hp and 332 lbs.-ft. Of torque. As expected, this engine is the most fun to drive among all the Motors on offer and due to this, the XF S is offered only with an AWD configuration, like the Checkered Flag trim.

Common to all these is an Eight-Speed ZF 8HP70 transmission that is slick in shifting gears and offers very little transmission lag. Gear shifts mostly smooth and precise and there is very little, to complain about the same. Pitching the Jaguar against its rivals and you will find that it's way ahead of all its rivals by quite some margin, in terms of power figures. In the torque department, however, its the Audi that takes top honors.

How fast is it?

As discussed previously, the XF focuses more on comfort rather than performance and that is evident, with the Jag’s performance figures.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan reach 0-60 in 5 sec

Despite having a powerful motor underneath its hood in the top trim, the Jag is the slowest among all its adversaries, in terms of the 0-60 figures. However, the Jag manages to redeem itself in the Quarter mile run by being the fastest of the lot, marginally edging out the Bimmer.

How well does it ride and handle?

The new Jaguar XF has phenomenal driving dynamics for an executive saloon of its kind due to a number of technical improvements such as the 50-50 weight distribution, the lightweight aluminum chassis and a modern torque vectoring system that reduces any amount of understeer on corners.

Both AWD and RWD drivetrains of the XF handle well on any road condition. The AWD directs most of its power to the rear wheels unless the front requires more. The Suspension cleverly adapts to the driving style and road undulations by constantly switching from stiff to a soft setting.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan Front View

Although the folks at Jaguar have focused primarily on performance this time, the ride offered is as refined as possible and will live up to the expectations of luxury car buyers who are usually very hard to please. The steering feedback is adequate and does a great job of inducing high levels of driver confidence on any type of road that faces this new Jag.

What about the Braking performance?

Just like the Motor, the Braking performance of the 2020 Jaguar XF, is just about decent when compared to its other adversaries.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan has Front Brake of 14 in.

With a stopping distance of 116ft, the XF comes to halt quickly albeit at a slightly lower distance when compared to its rivals. In the real world, the brakes aren’t spongy and squishy and offer a tactile and firm feel in the application.

With the kind of Engine that the Jaguar comes powered by, one can't expect it to return a jaw-dropping MPG figure. However, with clever fuel-saving techs like a start-stop system and a lightweight aluminum architecture, the XF, manages to score decent points in the MPG department. You can squeeze out a lot of gas mileage with this Jag, provided, you have a light foot on the accelerator pedal and drive in the right gear as well.

Although Jaguar has paid a lot of attention to boost fuel economy with features such as the stop-start system which works well in traffic, it falls short of the A6 and the 540i as it delivers a combined MPG of 23 while the other two give 24 miles to the gallon. On city drives, expect 20 MPG and 28 MPG on highways. Talking of the range, however, it’s the Jaguar that takes the lead with its massive fuel tank.

7.5/10

The broad, leather-clad seats in the XF provide great neck and thigh support in the front and the rear. The legroom and headroom provided in the back are sufficient but aren’t exactly generous once you find out that rival cars offer more in the spaciousness department.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan Seating

Jaguar has a rather well-appointed and modern, feels too subtle in comparison to its rivals and you’ll feel the same once you get into the XF. Sure, the materials used are top-notch with beautiful leather-wrapped on to everything you see contrasted by smooth piano black finishing on the dash and the door handles but it just looks like they didn’t spend enough time making it look appealing.

The XF can seat 5 passengers comfortably and can offer tons of refinement even in its hardcore ‘dynamic’ mode where the car comes alive and the exhaust opens up. Everything seems toned down and calm even in the 380 hp XF S which is no mean feat.

How good is the Infotainment system?

With all modern cars, decking their infotainment system with a plethora of features, Jaguar decided to follow them up as well.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan Infotainment Screen

The XF comes loaded with all the modern-day nitty-gritty that you would expect from a Sedan of this category. However, unlike some of its rivals, the Infotainment system may not feel as slick or intuitive like them but, it manages to get the job done, every time.

  • Meridian Sound System 380W with 11 speakers including 1 subwoofer
  • Touch Pro – 10" capacitive Touchscreen display with controls for audio, climate control, Bluetooth and navigation*
  • Physical dials with 5" full-color TFT-LCD display
  • USB/iPod Connectivity with HD Radio
  • Dynamic Volume Control
  • Apple Car Play and Android Auto with SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot – 4G Hotspot – includes 3GB or 3 months (whichever comes first) complimentary data subscription

How much Cargo can you carry in the XF?

As with any other Jag, Practicality takes preference over performance and the massive 17.8 cu.ft. Of Cargo Space on offer, is a testimony to the same statement.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan Cargo Space

What furthers adds to the Jaguar’s cause is the 40:20:40 split folding rear seats that elevates the cargo space for when you need to pack in some more luggage.

However, when you pit the Jag against its adversaries, you will find that the Jag doesn't fare as badly as one would have thought. In fact, it beats the Ultra-Practical Audi A6 in terms of the Cargo area and falls marginally short of the Bimmer's space on offer.

Various Creature Comforts on offer?

Jaguar has been always famed for embodying a long plethora of creature comforts inside all of their cars and the XF sedan, is no different either. You have an endless list of features on offer on the inside of the Jag, some of which have been listed down below. 

  • Automatic A/C with solar sensing, mist sensing, air filtration and dual temperature control for driver and front passenger with deployable vents

Jaguars have always been about class, elegance and Road presence and the XF, certainly manages to embody all of these with itself on the outside. Speaking of the design, you have the traditional Jaguar family front grille upfront. However, the LED headlights and the DRL's adds purpose and sleekness to the overall front end. There are sharp body lines on the hood and around the doors of the Jag, making it feel both classy and sporty at the same time. At the rear end, you will see some F-Type elements with the Taillights, seeming to get their inspiration from the same.

2020 Jaguar XF Sedan 3 Quarter View

The rapid acceleration of the XF is a result of Jaguar’s newly developed aluminum chassis is 265 lbs lighter than the previous model and their obsession with going minimalist to reduce as much weight as possible. Another interesting fact that contributes to the acceleration figures is that Jaguar claims the body panels weigh only a meager 13 lbs.

Drool-worthy features on the Outside?

Jaguar has ensured that you don't fall behind, listing the long list of exterior features that the Jag has on offer, when you are having a coffee table discussion with your friends or family members. These features aren't mere gimmicks but add a lot of function to the sedan as well. Here goes a list of few of those features

  • Lightweight Aluminum Architecture
  • Adaptive Front LED Headlights with Signature “J” LED DRL’s and Headlamp washers
  • F-Type inspired LED Brake Lights

  • Passive Front Head Restraints
  • Dual-stage front airbags and seat-mounted side airbags for front occupants and Full-length side-impact curtain airbags for front and rear

2020 Jaguar XF Competition

8.0/10

Jaguar XF vs Audi A6

The A6 Sedan was introduced in 1994 as the successor to the infamous Audi 100. Since then; it has always been a force to be reckoned with when it comes to executive saloons. The A6 combines the driving dynamics of a sports car and the practicality of a large German saloon and as it is one of the most luxury-focused Audis out there, the Jag does have a lot of things to worry about.

The 3.0 V6 in the Audi is a phenomenal engine even though it is a couple of horses down on the XF. It certainly is more fuel-efficient and reliable. All the other engine choices of the A6 such as the 2.0 liter 4-cylinder and the 2.8 liter V6 are just as great as the 3.0 liter and provide the required “oomph”. The 3.0 liter V6 variant pumps put 333 hp and a net torque of 325lb-ft and it propels the A6 to 60mph from a standstill in 5.1 seconds which may not be as quick as the XF but considering its weight, it isn’t bad.

2020 Audi A6 Sedan

Jaguar XF vs BMW 5 Series

Remember BMW’s tagline, “the ultimate driving machine”? This is the ultimate driving machine. The 5-series is the big dog that has kept on dominating the executive saloon game in terms of sales and driving dynamics ever since its inception in 1972.

While the Jaguar XF has focused on trying to increase power, torque and straight-line speed, the 5 series focuses on spreading that power onto the wheels in such a way that it inspires driver confidence like no other car out there. The bimmer possesses a 3.0 liter, turbocharged in-line 6-cylinder that pumps out 335 hp and a net torque of 332 lb-ft and it propels the 5-series to 60mph from a standstill in 4.9 seconds just like the XF.

2020 Jaguar XF Final Verdict

With the 2020 XF, Jaguar has checked all the boxes that were missing from the 2019 version. You do get the Stylish Feel on the Outside and a Typical British feel, once inside the cabin of the XF. Despite the Not so High Quality of the Interiors, the long list of features and creature comforts will leave no complaints on the minds of the occupants of the Jag. Add to all these, a soft suspension and a superb noise insulation inside the Cabin and you have one of the best chauffeur driven cars in the segment. So, if you are in the market, looking to be driven while seated in the rear seat and don’t want to tackle the usual traffic, the 2020 Jaguar XF presents itself as a strong contender in that case.
