The 2015 Jaguar XF makes a statement about its owner: I went in a different direction. As much as luxury brand advertising might underscore up the individualism associated with purchasing a driveway ornament to show the world that you've finally 'made it,' there's little outside-the-box thinking that goes into leasing the latest black or silver piece of German hardware. If you really want to chart your own path in the world of mid-size premium sedans, then you have to seek out a lower-volume model like the XF (or its similarly-positioned domestic rival, the Cadillac CTS).
Unlike a BMW, Audi, or Cadillac, however, the Jaguar XF brings with it an understanding of luxury that is distinctly British, and one that has remained undiluted by decades of foreign ownership. Whether this is your cup of tea of not won't become apparent until you spend some time inside a Jaguar, but despite riding on a platform that's due to age out at the end of this model year, the XF has a lot to offer traditional luxury fans who favor stand-out styling over pack mentality.
