Jaguar XF named BBC Top Gear Saloon car of the year​

The Jaguar XF has been crowned Saloon car of the year by BBC Top Gear, who praised the vehicle for its ‘immaculate blend of comfort and verve.’ This adds to impressive line of awards for the new XF, having been named Best Executive Car at the Fleet News Awards and Best Director’s Car at the SME Company Car Awards in the last month alone.

Top Gear Magazine praised in particular the XF’s stiff, lightweight aluminium-intensive construction, which enables the highest standards of performance, efficiency, safety and dynamics. More importantly, it gives the XF a significant edge in the formidably competitive Saloon Car category.

Each of the Top Gear Magazine Award winners are picked by the publication’s expert motoring journalists along with The Stig – who rate and review over 300 cars each year, before announcing the best in each category.

Speaking about the XF’s lightweight construction, Jack Rix, Deputy Editor, Top Gear Magazine, said: “It cuts a hefty 190kg from the old XF but it’s also stiffer and frees up more interior space. The cleanest model emits a mere 104g/km of CO2, unthinkable with steel underpinnings, while the one with the F-Types 375bhp supercharged V6 can cover 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds.”
