New XF R-Sport Black model added to the range as part of last hurrah for Jaguar's BMW 5-series rival

Jaguar has announced changes to its XF line-up, which now includes a new R-Sport Black model and upgrades to other trim levels.

The revisions, which Jaguar hopes will maintain customer interest in the firm's current BMW 5-series rival, come ahead of the launch of an all-new XF, which is due to be unveiled at the New York motor show in April. 

Priced from £38,350, the R-Sport Black costs £2100 more than the standard R-Sport on which it is based but comes with £8770 worth of upgrades.

The R-Sport Black comes with 20in Black Kalimnos alloys, a 770W Meridian Surround Sound system, leather interior, sports seats with memory function and a choice of five paint options.

The model is powered by Jaguar’s 197bhp 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine.

All models in the XF saloon and Sportbrake range will now come with the Winter Comfort Pack and Parking Pack as standard, which together include heated seats and windscreen, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera.

Portfolio, Diesel S Portfolio, XFR and XFR-S models all get Blind Spot Monitor as standard, and most models get upgraded alloys.

SE, SE Business and Premium Luxury trims have been discontinued, as have the 3.0-litre V6 petrol and 3.0-litre TDV6 diesel engines.

Our Verdict

Jaguar XF 2008-2015

The Jaguar XF is a sublime British executive saloon. It has a tremendous interior and even greater dynamics

the previous starting price was too close to the starting price of the XE.

Kind of comes across as aping the Mercedes sporty Black series idea/name, but whatever helps to sell more cars, I guess.

The current XF will be seen as not only being the finest ever car in the executive class, but also one of the best ever cars and a great all-rounder. It has been class leader since it was launched in 2007 and despite the likes of the current BMW 5-Series, Mercedes E Class and Audi A6 all being newer cars, they've not been able to trump the brilliance of the XF. It's handling, ride, refinement, quality and reliability are unmatched and as an all-round package the BMW, Merc and Audi don't come close. In fact the only area they beat the XF is interior space, while the only area in which I feel the Jaguar is beaten is in its build quality by vault like Lexus GS which is quite exceptional. The next XF will have a hard time following in the footsteps of its predecessor, but as it'll be a Jaguar you know this near impossible task will be pulled off with ease and the gap between it and its rivals will be massive.

At least he doesn't sit on the fence. .
The Black Model appears to simply be the already available 'black pack' applied as part of the trim level; it's not aping the Merc as there's no performance upgrade. I like the black wheels but admit they're polarising.

Bah! R and Sport with a 2.2 Litre diesel engine? We have totally lost the plot,all in the name of marketing.A friend recently bought a BMW 335 GT ! WTF ! it is only a hatchback version of a sedan.I think the only company left where GT models mean something is Porsche,but I wonder even about the GTS moniker there.

What claptrap, the XF is a safety disaster. Hopeless at impact protection and totally outclassed by smaller cars let alone the big-money Germans which trounce it. It sits on the prehistoric Ford DEW98 platform, after all. So slate the Germans all you like, at least they've sorted out the safety angle.

Roadster, what a load of rubbish. The XF was far from cutting edge when it was launched, and it's looking incredibly dated now. To call it a class-leader is nothing short of a joke.

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice

    Volkswagen's new compact crossover has the looks, the engineering and the build quality to be a resounding success, but not with this diesel engine

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
