Citing research conducted by Kwik Car, Jaguar says an entry-level 2.0-litre 163PS XF in Prestige specification will hold 52% of its original value after three years and 30,000 miles. That's compared to a Mercedes-Benz E200 BlueTec SE Auto, which holds 45% of its original value, an Audi A6 Ultra in S-Line specification which also holds 45%, and a BMW 520d SE which holds 44%.

As well as best-in-class residual values, Jaguar also claims the XF will sit in a lower insurance group than its rivals, citing research by Thatcham. Insurance ratings for the XF start in Group 25E - five groups lower than the equivalent BMW 5 Series.
