Jaguar XF – Voted Car Of The Decade
On September the 1st the most fuel efficient version of jaguar XF will go on sale. The Jaguar XF 2.2d is capable of travelling 800 miles on a single tank whilst emitting only 149g/km of CO2. Combining economy with performance, refinement and the dynamic ability expected of modern day jaguars the new XF is bound to be a success.
Over the last 10 years Auto Express have been asking their readers to participate in the driver power survey and evaluate the vehicle they own. The in depth survey covered many aspects of ownership from reliability, design handling and ease of use to dealer performance.
In that period of time over 300,000 readers expressed their views and opinions through the survey, with hundreds of individual cars being reported upon, with the Jaguar XF coming out ion top emerging as the Auto Express Driver Power ‘Car of the Decade’ quite an achievement, especially when you consider the car has only been in production since 2008 and one which Jaguar say they feel humbled by.
Dr. Speth commented: ‘We are humbled by Jaguar owners voting in such a way to rate the XF as the number one car in the UK. It’s a tremendous achievement for everyone in Jaguar – from the people here at Castle Bromwich who have been building the car since 2008 to the engineers, the designers and the dealers. I am very proud to receive the award on their behalf.’
Graham Hope, Editor of Auto Express, commented: ‘Jaguar’s XF is a thoroughly deserving winner of our Car of the Decade. Over the past 10 years, more than 302,000 Auto Express readers have told us what they like and dislike about their cars, and no model has demonstrated such consistent all-round ability as the XF. It’s fantastic to drive and extremely well built – a tribute to the skilled workforce at Castle Bromwich. I am absolutely delighted that a British-built car has won this award, and fully expect the latest version of the XF, with its new diesel engine, to achieve even more success in the years ahead.’
