Vantage Leasing are proud to offer four Jaguar XF models to lease, and with our XF leasing deals starting at just £249/m for a business lease or £298.80 for a personal one, you could be taking a Jaguar XF home more quickly than expected. Let’s meet the car which is fantastic to drive and look at, and which makes a fine addition to the brand we’ve come to know and love.
Originally launched in 2007, the XF has received acclaim during its lifetime and continues to mature respectably as you would expect from a Jaguar - in fact the car is considered to be the ‘standard-bearer’ of the Jaguar brand (a brand that we’ll agree has established very high standards!)
Sportbrake, the estate version of the XF, was launched in 2012 to extend the line-up of the marque and has received a similarly glowing reception. 2012 also saw the saloon XF models receive a minor facelift: a change which was praised as emphasising the graceful lines of the car.
As expected, this is a very British affair: the car was designed at Jaguar’s Whitley design and development headquarters in Coventry, and assembled in Birmingham. The design was supervised by Ian Callum, who has been involved with every Jaguar model in the last decade as well as some prestigious models from other brands.
A fun-fact: a modified version of the XFR currently holds the current speed record for Jaguar, at an eye-watering 225.675mph.
Jaguar’s mission has always been to create stunning and iconic cars that are powerful yet reliable; elegant yet practical. The XF represents a more than capable continuation of this mission.
The Jaguar XF is up against similarly performing Audi, BMW and Mercedes models, although it is regarded as a strong performer by review sites and owners alike.
The Diesel engine present on all of the Jaguar xf lease deals we offer is described as an ‘exceptionally smooth’ drive. Its comfort while cruising is noted as being particularly pleasant across all iterations of the XF range.
Advanced ZF automatic transition is included across all XF models (8 speed on the diesel models), bolstering the smooth driving: the word ‘glide’ is frequently used with good reason to capture the feel of effortless acceleration the car offers.
The variable-ratio power-assisted Servotronic steering is precise and retains an old-fashioned hydraulic feel, which, when combined with strong-gripped tyres and a rigid bodyshell, mean the peaks and troughs of any road can be traversed quickly and confidently. Our Jaguar XF R-Sport lease offers an even more exhilarating drive thanks to its quicker acceleration.
The fact that British police use an XF Diesel as part of their vehicle fleet suggests high praise for the vehicle’s handling and is a great endorsement of why so many people lease Jaguar XF's.
The slickness of the vehicle is immediately apparent: Jaguar developed the aerodynamic body with Computional Fluid Dynamics (CFD) from the very beginning of the design process to maximise efficacy of each element of the design. Optional lower front bumper, rear spoiler and valance, and side stills can be added to enhance the aerodynamics further.
This slickness continues when you get in, too: after pressing the inviting pulsing starter button the gear selector dial rises to meet your hand, the air-vents automatically swivel into position and you’re ready to go (after taking a moment to appreciate the interior, of course).
The interior, which is described a having ‘a real sense of occasion’, and a high-standard, classy and comfortable feel, represents nothing less than would be expected from a Jaguar. A range of ‘Glove-soft’ leather, sourced from providers in Italy and the UK, is available as an optional extra on the R-Sport model. A subtle and classy blue light illuminates key points of the XF cabin, contributing to the captivating interior.
There are 6 trim levels available in the range, and our Jaguar XF lease options give you the choice of Luxury level (saloon or estate), Premium Luxury level (estate) or R-Sport level (saloon).
The Jaguar XF has seating that can be adjusted electronically, meaning you can quickly and easily get comfortable before (and during) your journey. A memory setting is included to remember your physique and give you maximum comfort each time.
An underbody tray, engine mounts and a tuned exhaust system work together to reduce noise and vibration, contributing further to the smooth drive.
The sound system will ensure that you have the ability to fill the car with your own sounds. The basic option includes an inviting 10 speakers with radio, CD player, compatibilty with MP3 and WAV audio formats, and USB connectivity. If you demand more from your leased Jaguar’s sound system, you can upgrade to one of two Meridian sound systems: 380W 11-speaker or the whopping 825W surround sound 17-speaker system.
All of the car’s digital features are controlled via a central 7” full-colour touchscreen: once you’ve got the knack of the touchscreen controls you’ll be flying.
All XF models come with satnav, Xenon headlights, rain-detecting wipers, Bluetooth connectivity, alloy wheels and climate control as standard. The optional Comfort Pack available on Luxury models adds a heated windscreen and heated front seats. Other optional features include heated steering wheel and Interactive Voice.
Whichever Jaguar XF leasing deal you opt for, you can be sure you will enjoy the utmost comfort & luxury.
CO2 emissions fall between 129 and 139g/km depending on which of the Jaguar XF leasing options you go for. This will contribute to the upkeep costs, but the image and iconicism of the car definitely offset that.
A maximum value of between 54 and 58mpg is given for XF models, and reviews from users who have driven the car regularly on long journeys say it consistently achieves around 50mpg.
The Jaguar XF came leagues ahead of its competitors in the 2013 JD Power Satisfaction Survey, positioning 3rd out of 116 cars.
Legroom in the back may not give fully grown adults the opportunity to stretch out fully, but it compares well to similar vehicles in the XF’s class, and won’t be a limiting for your planned journeys.
The boot space on the Jaguar XF is an impressive 540 litres, and can be made even better by dropping the back seats down (963 litres) - a feature some competitors charge extra for.
Headroom in the rear is increased by 48mm thanks to the extended roofline of the estate, meaning that tall passengers won’t be squashed in.
The Sportbrake offers larger boot space than the saloon models, as would be expected: 550 litres with the back seats up and a generous 1,675 litres with them folded (figures which surpass competing models).
You’ll want to ensure that your leased Jaguar XF is safe for you and your family. Thankfully, the basic structure of the XF is carried over from the S-Type, and the dimensions have been updated to conform to crash safety requirements, demonstrating Jaguar’s commitment to safety throughout the design process.
The XF also has parking sensors which will inform you when obstacles are approaching, meaning that you’ll not risk damaging the car (or its occupants!) when entering a tricky spot.
Other safety features include six airbags, braking whose force automatically increases in an emergency to reduce risk of skidding, deadlocks, an alarm and an engine immobiliser. The car holds a five star rating from Thatcham's New Vehicle Security Ratings (NVSR).
We said it at the start: this is a fantastic car. It holds the Jaguar speed record, the police force have deemed the handling and safety to be high enough for usage in their fleet, and it attracts rave reviews from across the board. We are proud to be able to offer this fantastic vehicle at affordable rates through several of our Jaguar XF leasing deals.

The next-generation XF has proved yet another hit on the Jaguar setlist. Incorporating some of the key key elements of the smaller-scaled XE executive saloon, the second generation of the four-door XF slides into prime position with even sharper looks, improved access to the rear, and much more inside space than its predecessor had to offer.
Our overall impression of the XF comes from its unquestionably smooth performance and slick automatic transmission. The car is relatively lightweight when compared to its rivals, thanks the use of aluminium for some key parts of the vehicle’s body. The lightweight materials used also help to improve both the car’s ride and handling, and its suspension system ensures the body stays low down on the road and perfectly composed when cornering. The XF isn’t just about a good drive, however, with Jaguar’s signature plush interior styling delivering on luxury and comfort across all models in the range.
Out on the road, the XF really shows off its skills when you show it a few good corners. The car’s fast steering makes tackling bends blissfully easy, and feels highly responsive to the driver’s commands. If you prefer a more equal balance between great grip in poor conditions and the neat feeling of rear-wheel drive, the 4WD model will strike the perfect balance.
The S models of the XF come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, but are also the only models to come with Jaguar’s adjustable Adaptive Dynamics suspension system. This is also an option on the other 178bhp models, and adjustable driving modes allow the driver to tweak the car’s damping characteristics to their own requirements.
When driven in Dynamic mode, the car responds with more tautness and life, quickly altering direction and cornering flatter. In Comfort mode, the quality of the ride is excellent even with bigger wheels and most bumps in the road are evened out by the dampers leaving only substantial road imperfections to interrupt an otherwise silky smooth ride.
Jaguar understands that a considerable portion of the XF’s drivers will be business users, and CO2 emissions are in these cases very important. It’s little surprise, therefore, that the XF is available almost exclusively with more economis diesel engines.
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel with 161- or 178bhp available comes with an option of either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but our recommendation would be the slick-shifting automatic. The eight-speed auto makes motorway driving an effortless joy, and paddles on the steering wheel provide some involvement in the gear changes should it be wanted. For swifter progress in this hefty saloon, it would be beneficial to opt for the higher-powered 2.0-litre Ingenium engine, which provides an extra 17bhp and 50Nm torque.
The XF’s engine is nothing if not keen to get going. Pulling hard and strong, a 0-62mph sprint will take 8.1 seconds in the automatic, whilst even the less powerful model makes it in a good 8.7 seconds. As revs increase, the car does give out something of a diesel growl, but generally the XF is a calm and quiet beast of the road.
The top end of the range is crowned by the XF S, with a huge 200Nm of torque and 296bhp delivered by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine. Although it isn’t quite as quick off the mark as the petrol version, which makes 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds, its massive reach makes the car incredibly adaptable.
A supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol S model makes 0-62mph in just 5.3 seconds, using the same engine as the F-Type sports car and making this model of the XF a true performance vehicle. Although it does develop a bit of vocal confidence as revs increase, it drives quietly and offers a good balance of involvement and cruising comfort on the motorway.
The XF is a good choice for business drivers looking to keep their emissions low. The relatively low-powered 2.0-litre diesel manual emits just 104g/km of CO2, which is less even than some superminis achieve. However, the automatic model, which emits slightly more CO2 at 109g/km, might be a better bet for buyers looking to drive away before 1st April 2017 as it won’t cost any more under current road tax guidelines.
As an automatic, the base level XF delivers 68.9mpg on a combined cycle, whilst the 2.0-litre diesel with 178bhp can deliver 65.7mpg at 114g/km of CO2. Before 1st April 2017, road tax is priced at £30 per year for this model, and is £10 cheaper for the 161bhp version. In terms of economy, the four-wheel-drive version comes up at the rear, delivering 57.6mpg at 129g/km of CO2.
The diesel S model performs with impressive power, but is also surprisingly efficient considering its performance. Under current guidelines, road tax costs £145 per year for the car as it delivers 51.4mpg and 144g/km of CO2.
The petrol S model is, as might be expected, a little more expensive to run. Road tax is expensive, and Jaguar’s estimated returns of 35.0mpg and 198g/km CO2 will make filling the tank a common and costly expenditure.
The XF is modern, roomy, and full of interesting technological kit. Continuing the theme of the car’s exterior styling, many of the interior design elements are easily recognisable from the smaller XE. However, the XF is no copy; entering the car for the first time, it’s clear to see that Jaguar has well and truly evolved its interiors to the next generation.
On the dash, there’s an eight-inch widescreen infotainment system with much sharper graphics than previous Jaguar models could boast, and below this sit two rows of buttons for easy control of the in-car heating.
A few nifty tricks that were first seen in the original XF have thankfully been carried through to this generation. The rotary gear selector rises from the centre console when the pulsating starter button is pressed, and at night the dashboard is lit in a calming blue glow for relaxed nighttime driving.
With an overall very modern appearance, the XF also has highly adjustable seats to allow for the utmost in comfortable driving and, compared to the first of its kind, this generation delivers much better access to the back thanks to larger rear doors and, once inside, there’s a whole lot more room to use.
The amount of equipment inside the XF is impressive, and even the entry-level Prestige model comes as standard with Bluetooth connectivity, sat-nav, a DAB radio, USB connectivity, heated electronic leather seats, cruise control, and two-zone climate control.
The systems inside the XF are largely controlled by the easily navigable touchscreen system in the dash, and there is a series of clear buttons at either side of the screen to take you straight to key functions such as audio, navigation, and climate control.
There’s an impressive sound system fitted as standard, but there’s also the option of upgrading to a more immersive Meridian stereo. You’ll be able to easily play music with connections through Bluetooth and USB, and Jaguar’s InControl apps add further features such as monitoring remaining fuel levels and checking security status on your smartphone.
The new generation of the XF offers a big boot space, plenty of room inside the cabin, and a very comfortable ride. Thanks to the car’s improved rear access and increased legroom, it’s both easy to get inside and to find space once there. Even taller adults will feel perfectly able to get comfortable on longer journeys, thanks in part to the luxuriously comfortable seating. Shorter trips will also comfortably carry three adults across the rear bench.
Whilst the roofline tapers towards the rear end of the car, Jaguar’s clever design means there’s plenty of headroom in the back and passenger space is improved by the use of a larger wheelbase.
The boot, at 540 litres, is bigger than both the BMW 5 Series’ 520-litre boot and the Audi A6’s 530-litre capacity. It’s also a great shape for storage of all things family- or business-related.
Where more space is required, Jaguar also offers a 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat option, which takes luggage room up to 963 litres.
Reviews of the XF have placed the car in a very favourable position when compared with many German rivals, and drivers of the first-generation XF have praised the car for its excellent handling, performance, and ride quality. Jaguar has done much to improve on all of these points, so this generation shouldn’t disappoint.
Hidden away under the surface, there’s a lot of safety kit included as standard in the XF. The entry-level Prestige model even comes with a lane departure warning system and autonomous braking and, in the 2015 Euro NCAP crash testing rounds, this same kit and the sturdy body of the XF earned it a full and healthy five-star safety rating.
