2015 Jaguar XF Review

Although it has lots of standard features and excellent performance, the 2015 Jaguar XF performs poorly in our rankings due in part to its cramped rear seat, confusing infotainment system, and high ownership costs.

Pros & Cons

  • Sharp handling
  • Powerful available engines
  • Plenty of standard features
  • Frustrating, outdated infotainment system
  • Inadequate rear-seat headroom
  • Few driver assistance features

New for 2015

  • Standard navigation, rearview camera, and Meridian audio system
  • New Portfolio and Sport trims

2015 Jaguar XF Overview

Is the 2015 Jaguar XF a Good Used Car?

The XF is a decent choice for those who want to have some fun behind the wheel, though many class rivals offer that and more. You can find a lower price, more user-friendly tech, and a roomier interior elsewhere.

Used 2015 Jaguar XF Performance and Interior

The 2015 Jaguar XF comes with one of five powertrains, including a 240-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a supercharged V6, and three versions of a supercharged V8, producing up to 550 horsepower in the XFR-S trim. All engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base turbo-four has sufficient power, but we suggest the V6 engine, which is exclusive to the Portfolio and Sport trims. It offers quicker acceleration and is the only engine available with all-wheel drive (rear-wheel drive comes standard). The XF has a smooth ride and excellent grip around sharp corners. Fuel economy is so-so for the class, at 15-19 mpg in the city and 23-30 mpg on the highway.

The Jaguar XF has a handsome cabin with high-quality materials and seating for five. Power-adjustable, heated front seats and leather upholstery come standard. A heated steering wheel and cooled front seats are available. The front seats are comfortable, but the XF’s sloping roofline cuts into rear-seat headroom, making it difficult for taller folks to get comfortable. There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in the rear outboard seats and a tether-only connection in the middle seat. The XF’s trunk has a 17.7-cubic-foot trunk, which is large for the class.

Most of the XF’s features come standard, including a navigation system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, push-button start, and a proximity key. The XF’s standard infotainment system comes with an 11-speaker Meridian sound system and a 7-inch touch screen, which is smaller and slower to respond than systems found in rival upscale midsize cars. Basic functions require cycling through multiple menus, which can be distracting when driving. A 17-speaker Meridian system is available.

How Safe Is the XF?

As with many upscale midsize cars, neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tested the 2015 Jaguar XF.

All models feature blind spot monitoring and a rearview camera with front and rear parking sensors. Automatic high beams and cornering headlights are among the few available safety features. Many of the XF’s competitors offer more driver assistance features, like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning.

Should I Consider Another Used XF?

The 2015 model year is the last of the XF’s first generation, which began with the 2009 model year. For 2015, navigation, a rearview camera, and a Meridian audio system became standard. However, you may save some money by getting a 2013 or 2014 model, which offered these features as options. Jaguar redesigned the XF for 2016.

Which Used Jaguar XF Is Right for Me?

XF models come in one of six trims: Premium, Portfolio, Sport, Supercharged, XFR, and XFR-S. The Premium trim has plenty of features but lacks the potent engine that many luxury car shoppers expect. For the best blend of features and performance, go for the Portfolio or Sport trims. Each offers its own minor interior and exterior enhancements, like an upgraded sound system, higher-quality leather upholstery, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

For added warranty coverage, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned XF. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Jaguar extends the original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. Every CPO Jaguar must pass a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Jaguar warranty page carefully.

2015 Jaguar XF and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Jaguar XF or 2015 Audi A6?

Overall, the Audi A6 is a better car than the XF. The A6 has one of the nicest interiors in the class, and its excellent road manners are sure to impress you. While the Jaguar has more standard features, the Audi boasts better fuel economy and a lower starting price. In fact, you could find a better-equipped A6 for close to the XF’s base price. Some A6 models offer more innovative features that you can’t get with the XF, like a Wi-Fi hot spot, a head-up display, night vision assistance, and adaptive cruise control.

Which Is Better: 2015 Jaguar XF or 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

While the sporty XF specializes in sharp handling, the comfort-tuned Mercedes-Benz E-Class delivers a pillow-soft ride. That’s not to say that the E-Class has clumsy handling, as it feels composed around turns. Its base turbodiesel engine is surprisingly strong and fuel-efficient. Even in the higher trims, the E-Class has more power than its XF equivalent. Inside, the E-Class has comfortable seating – both fore and aft – and it comes standard with a healthy dose of driver assistance features, like a driver drowsiness monitor and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
