"On the coastal roads that link Jacksonville to St. Simon's Island in Georgia, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake was in fine fettle. The car's ubiquitous corporate V6 surged forward with no delay thanks to its well-tuned supercharger, which played nice with each of the ZF-sourced transmission's eight forward gears.
"Handling was predictable, thanks to a welcome 50:50 weight balance between the front and rear axles, and walked the line well between controlling body roll in corners and retaining the sense of calm touring required by its well-heeled buyers. Being able to move between multiple drive modes certainly helped sculpt the XF's personality as required, and a number of small tweaks to the front suspension (along with a load-leveling air spring system out back) help the Sportbrake to carry its marginal extra weight with dignity and grace."
