Jaguar's mid-range exec model has been an absolute hit with press and public alike. A striking car with a cutting edge (if slightly cramped) interior and an excellent range of engines. Sadly the refinement is not great.
The ride/handling balance of the XF is the envy of the competition. Comfortable, but with cat like agility when required. All this ability has made sure prices remain firm but that's good news when you come to sell.
The petrol XFs are very heavy on fuel and Co2 and for that reason they lose value very quickly in comparison to the diesel cars. The 3.0 petrol is a viable choice as it will be comparable in cost to the diesel but will have a third to half the mileage.
We would say go for the 2.7 diesel model in plain S spec as this car has the smaller wheels which help the ride no end and will have all the toys you need. This car will hold value like almost nothing else in it's class and is a sound buy.
A two year old XF 2.7D will cost around £27,000 and should have 20,000 miles showing. The same year 5.0 litre petrol will cost around £4000 more.
The XF holds it's value well. It's such a popular car that even the unloved 3.0 petrol V6 cars hold on to value well. The diesel models are as good as any car at holding value. Buy and sell diesel at any time. Go nearly new for petrol cars.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Jaguar XF you would aim to buy a 6 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.
Diesel Jaguar XF cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Jaguar XF cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Diesel Jaguar XF cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
