Which XF does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating7.6 / 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 wagon can come from somewhere other than the Haus of Mercedes-Benz.
The XF Sportbrake 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 wagon's versatility.
It's fair to say that the Mercedes E-Class wagon still dominates in overall refinement and performance potential. But if you want a midsize wagon that's a bit different than the norm, the 2019 XF Sportbrake will certainly satisfy.
2019 Jaguar XF configurations
The Jaguar XF sedan comes in a variety of trim levels. For the Sportbrake wagon, however, there are just two: Prestige and S. The Prestige has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine (296 horsepower, 295 pound-feet of torque), while the S has a supercharged V6 (380 hp, 332 lb-ft). An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.
Standard features include 19-inch wheels, xenon headlights, a sunroof, a power liftgate, heated and auto-dimming side mirrors, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats with driver-seat memory, power-adjustable steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and push-button ignition, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, a 10-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, a rearview camera and an 11-speaker sound system.
The S trim comes with the more powerful V6, 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 front sport seats, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning with automatic braking, and lane keeping assist.
A couple of option packages are also available. The Comfort & Convenience package includes heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats 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. There's also a Driver Assistance package (S trim only) that has upgraded driver safety aids and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality.

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.
The 2019 Jaguar XF might not beat other midsize luxury vehicles when it comes to measured dynamics, but it certainly wins out in design and touring comfort. It looks different than the competition, is competent on the open road, and features unique interior design and good build quality. Don't let the numbers fool you: The XF is still properly quick, and more than engaging enough for all but the most die-hard of sporting drivers.
Some manufacturers like to inundate buyers with tons of esoteric options and packages that may look intimidating. Instead of starting with one XF model and expecting buyers to option their cars bit by bit, Jaguar has simplified the process by bundling options in trims. Those trims are the Premium, Prestige, S, Portfolio and the new-for-2019 300 Sport LE.
Each one adds more luxury features and content, such as leather seats, a gesture-activated trunklid, a larger wide-screen navigation system, internet connectivity, adaptive headlights, an 825-watt surround-sound system, larger wheels and even user-configurable interior ambient lighting.
Even further, you can select different engines for your build, choosing to equip the Premium or Prestige trim with one of two turbocharged four-cylinder engines (providing either 247 hp or 296 hp) or even a 2.0-liter turbodiesel. Portfolio and 300 Sport trims are limited to the 296-hp engine, while S trims get the sublime high-output 3.0-liter V6 producing 380 horsepower.
All XF sedans except the S are available in either rear- or all-wheel drive and come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission. (S trims and the Sportbrake wagon only come in all-wheel drive.) Also standard are a torque vectoring system, which is designed to improve turn-in and handling, and Jaguar Drive Control, which allows drivers to set their car's characteristics to prioritize operation in economical, standard, dynamic or rain/ice/snow mode.
Adding to the comfort, all XFs come standard with power-adjustable front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, puddle lamps, heat-absorbing glass film, an acoustic-absorbing front windshield, heated door mirrors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. All these features ride on an all-aluminum chassis and suspension components that provide a lightweight and rigid platform to maintain sporty handling characteristics. If these traits interest you, look to Edmunds to help configure and find the perfect Jaguar XF for you.

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.
