The XF's biggest accomplishment is that it is a very good car that beats the Germans without feeling German. It still has that lovely organic, perfectly damped Jaguar feel. The steering is one of the best in the business. Some may wish for a bit more weight and slightly more feel, but the on-center feel is nearly perfect. The chassis is just so good. I can't believe how well it rides despite its twenty-inch wheels.
My issues with the XF include a slow touch screen, styling that isn't aggressive enough, and questionable build quality. Plus, they need to build a wagon version.
