The exterior styling of the XF is the first expression of Jaguar's
new design language in a saloon car. With interior design that is the
equal of the exterior in terms of crafted execution and visual excitement,

is room for five adults in comfort, generous interior stowage and a
boot capacity of up to 540 litres* (plus the opportunity to fold the
rear seats and add a further 420 litres).
