Is there anything interesting about its design?
The addition of the S on the badge means the XF scores a handsome body kit comprising lower front and rear aprons for the bumpers, rear skirts, and a small lip spoiler. The black grille and machined alloys finish off a subtle, smart, and arresting exterior.
Inside, the XF is just as special. Jag says the prow-like line that extends around the top of the cabin is reminiscent of an old power boat, and it's certainly a unique piece of interior sculpture.
The dash top follows suit, although some of the lines around the head-up display module are a bit clunky. The integration of the dash-top tweeters and speakers, though, is excellent.
Even the way the climate control panel gently curves around at the edges to enclose the digital temperature readouts is a thing of beauty and class.
Two-tone black and white leather extends up the door cards and through the front and rear seats while the black headlining adds a sporty look.
A three dial digital dash and Jaguar Land Rover's new touchscreen multimedia system complement a simplified dash and console arrangement with minimal buttons to spoil the lines. Many of those controls have moved to the steering wheel, as well.
Obviously, there are many ways to spec a particular XF to your liking, and perhaps the cream leather isn't particularly practical in this case. But the overall feel and look is unique to the Jaguar and the XF.
