The Jaguar XF has yet been voted as 'Car of the Year' by leading British motoring magazine Auto Express.

The XF claimed its crown in Auto Express’s ‘New car Honnours’ following victory in the 'Best Executive Car' category ahead of the BMW 5-Series, the Mercedes CLS and E-Class, the Audi A6 and the Lexus GS.

Dan Strong, Editor of Auto Express magazine, said: "Jaguar’s XF is a machine that has proved the doubters wrong. It’s a car that impresses on every level, from design to drivability, practicality to price.

"But that’s not the only reason why our judges chose this car. Our winner has raised the standards in a class where excellence is considered the norm. It’s a home-grown package, designed and developed in the UK and built by a highly-skilled workforce."

What Car? magazine, What Diesel magazine and The Sun Motoring also named the XF 'Car of the Year' while Top Gear magazine hailed it their 'Limo of the Year'. Other notable awards include 'Interior of the Year' from British Car magazine and the 'Design Award' from Autocar magazine.
