The Jaguar XF is the latest version of the British firm’s rival to the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes E-Class and Audi A6. It’s arguably quite a handsome car but do its good looks compromise on its interior space? Find out here.
Read our dimensions guide to see whether the XF could quite literally fit into your life. If you’re taken with its handsome looks, put the Jaguar XF in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save.
Jaguar XF exterior dimensions
The new XF is an altogether more striking proposition compared to its predecessor, with larger air intakes and an F-Type inspired set of rear light clusters helping it stand out from other premium executive saloons.
It’s wider and shorter in both height and length than the old model, yet boasts a longer overall wheelbase for more interior space. Against its main rival, the 5-Series, the XF isn’t as wide but it’s longer in length and shorter in height.

Jaguar XF interior dimensions
The interior of the latest XF is a nice place to spend time in thanks to a wonderfully minimalist design coupled with the use of very high quality materials. Even though the new XF is not as tall as the old version, it has exactly the same amount of headroom for front occupants and now provides even more headroom for rear passengers.
The BMW 5 Series, however, provides more interior space with 45mm more headroom for front seat passengers and 1mm extra for rear passengers – hardly a deal breaker but tall buyers might want to try it out before committing.
Jaguar XF luggage capacity
Measuring 540 litres, the new Jaguar XF’s boot is larger than that in the BMW 5-Series and incidentally, it’s exactly the same as the old car’s figure, even though the new version is shorter in length.
Jaguar XF fuel tank capacity
The size of the fuel tank in the Jaguar XF varies depending on which engine you specify. The 161hp 2.0-litre diesel unit has a 55-litre fuel tank. The 178hp 2.0-litre diesel and 296hp 3.0-litre TDV6 get a 66-litre tank and the top-of-the-line XF S with a 375hp 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine gets a 74-litre tank.
This means the lowest theoretical mileage on one tank of fuel is 553 miles in the 3.0-litre V6 petrol and the highest is 954 miles with the 178hp 2.0-litre diesel unit equipped with a manual gearbox.
Jaguar XF turning circle
With a turning circle measuring 11.61 metres, it sits in the middle of the premium executive saloon segment. It beats the BMW 5-Series which measures 11.95 metres and the Audi A6 which achieves a 12-metre turning circle.
It’s only beaten by the Mercedes E-Class which has an 11.25-metre turning circle. Incidentally the old XF achieved a tighter turning circle than this new model – it measured 11.5 metres.
Jaguar XF weight
With the varied weight saving methods Jaguar’s applied to the XF, it’s expected to become one of the lightest cars in its class. In comparison, it’s exactly 200kg lighter than the BMW 5 Series and around 190kg lighter than its predecessor.
The lightest XF comes in Prestige trim with the 161hp 2.0-litre diesel engine mated to a manual gearbox which weighs 1,545kg. The heaviest version weighs 1,750kg – the XF S fitted with the 3.0-litre TDV6 and obligatory automatic gearbox.
