The acclaimed Jaguar XF has been voted Auto Trader ‘New Car of the Year’.
It’s the XF’s ninth major UK award and comes in the same week that the new XF Sportbrake was unveiled.
Ditching the traditional ‘expert panel of judges’ and replacing them with 10,000 genuine car owners, the Auto Trader New Car Awards relies on the honest opinions of consumers who have bought, driven and lived with their new vehicles.
Car owners voted for all car ownership and driving aspects such as running costs, handling, reliability, practicality, performance, equipment, interior and safety.
