Which XF does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating7.4 / 10
German automakers may define sport-luxury cars in the minds of most, but there are alternatives. The 2019 Jaguar XF reminds us that a sporty midsize luxury sedan can come from somewhere other than the Haus of Audi, BMW or Mercedes-Benz.
The XF engages its driver much like its peers, despite not having a world-beating engine performance. Yet what the Jaguar lacks in outright power and speed compared to its rivals — although with up to 380 horsepower, it hardly lacks — it makes up with elegant styling and theatrical flair. How else to describe a car with a gear selector that rises from the center console upon ignition? Abundant trunk space also enhances the XF sedan's versatility.
Jaguar also offers plenty of choice. Getting to pick among multiple trim levels, engines and either rear- or all-wheel drive makes it easy to build a XF to suit, whether for mild-mannered commutes or more adrenaline-pumping back road explorations. There's even a wagon version for drivers seeking maximum cargo flexibility.
It's fair to say that the Germans still dominate in overall refinement and performance potential. But if you want a midsize sedan that's a bit different than the norm, the 2019 XF will certainly satisfy.
2019 Jaguar XF configurations
The Jaguar XF sedan is available in five main trim levels: Premium, Prestige, 300 Sport, Portfolio Limited Edition and S. The Sportbrake wagon is available only in Prestige and S trims. The Prestige builds on the Premium trim's standard set of features, while the Portfolio loads on more luxury features. The 300 Sport is a new-for-2019 trim largely distinguished by exclusive visual touches inside and out. The S trim includes almost all of the Jag's available features, including maximum engine performance.
Jaguar also uses designations to indicate which engine a particular car is equipped with: 20d, 25t and 30t. The 20d has a diesel-powered four-cylinder (180 horsepower, 318 pound-feet of torque) that gets up to 35 mpg in combined city/highway driving. The 25t (247 hp, 269 lb-ft) and 30t (296 hp, 295 lb-ft) have gas-powered four-cylinders. An eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.
Standard Premium features include 18-inch wheels, xenon headlights, a sunroof, heated and auto-dimming side mirrors, simulated leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats with driver-seat memory, power-adjustable steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, push-button ignition, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, a 10-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera and an 11-speaker sound system.
The Prestige adds 19-inch wheels, keyless entry, leather upholstery, heated seats, a heated steering wheel, blue ambient cabin lighting, a navigation system, smartphone-enabled onboard apps, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and front and rear parking sensors.
The new 300 Sport shares many of the Prestige features, but it adds a sport-tuned suspension, dark satin gray exterior trim, and active driver safety features including automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist and a drowsy driver warning system.
The Portfolio Limited Edition dials up the tech and luxury with adaptive LED headlights, auto high-beam assist (which dims high beams for oncoming traffic), a hands-free-opening trunklid, premium leather upholstery, upgraded power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats with seat position memory, heated rear seats, four-zone climate control, rear and side window shades, customizable ambient interior lighting, a head-up display and a more powerful 17-speaker sound system.
Finally, the S trim comes with a supercharged V6 (380 hp, 332 lb-ft), 20-inch wheels, an S-specific body kit and an adaptive suspension. Feature-wise, it's similar to the Prestige, though it also comes with sport front seats and a few extra safety features.
A few optional packages include the Vision Assist package for Premium and Prestige trims, which has adaptive LED headlights, auto high-beam assist, front and rear parking sensors, emergency braking, forward collision mitigation, blind-spot warning and lane departure warning. There's also a Driver Assistance package that has upgraded driver safety aids and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality.
The Comfort & Convenience package, available for most trims, includes heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a hands-free-opening trunklid and a soft door-close function. The Tech package bundles the 17-speaker sound system with a customizable digital display that replaces the driver's analog gauge cluster, while a Cold Climate package offers heated front and rear seats, steering wheel, and front windshield and washer jets.

Jaguar XF vs. the competition
2019 Jaguar XF
2019 BMW 5 Series
Jaguar XF vs. BMW 5 Series
The 5 Series typically sets the benchmark in the midsize sport-luxury sedan class for its effortless blend of comfort, power and performance. Few cars can match its overall excellence, which is bolstered by a wide range of engine choices and innovative tech features. But that doesn't stop Jaguar from trying.
Jaguar XF vs. Lexus GS 350
The XF holds the edge on handling, and its optional 380-horsepower V6 engine provides more grunt than the GS' V6 engine. You can get the XF with a diesel, too. Then again, Lexus offers a fuel-sipping GS 450h and a sport-tuned GS F with a throaty V8. Overall, both cars are pretty evenly matched.
Jaguar XF vs. Volvo S90
The Jaguar and the Volvo both represent the upstart component of the midsize luxury class. What the Volvo lacks in overall performance — it's not the capable handler that the XF is — it makes up for in sublime cabin comfort, including some of the best seats around. Like the Jaguar, it also offers an impressive roster of standard equipment, although the Volvo includes more active driver safety features than the XF.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Jaguar XF?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
