Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, although the SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, so you can pick and choose those are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs might be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2019 Jaguar XF. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2019 Jaguar XF is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for some time, you may get the 2019 Jaguar XF with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a stronger V6, or you will get the miserly 2019 Jaguar XF Hybrid. On the highway, the 2019 Jaguar XF is comfortable and compliant. 2019 Jaguar XF also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2019 Jaguar XF with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2019 Jaguar XF provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you opt for one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to pick from over the way.
The 2019 Jaguar XF is as competent while they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely easy to drive. If you’re looking for something with much more class and space than a small sedan, the 2019 Jaguar XF might you should be the sedan for you.
The 2019 Jaguar XF is the base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2019 Jaguar XF Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features on the upper trim levels may be put into the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL audio system combined with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 Jaguar XF stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is easy to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Jaguar XF features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount a car seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so that the front seat do not need to be scooted entirely forward.
