I know - because it looks like some kind of Lexus or Infiniti or something.. This is not a Jaguar I would like to drive... I mean - it does not look like Jaguar at all.. (well, we lived thorough Jaguar making Estate and Diesel.. and Diesel Estate, so we will live through this as well, but it definitely is a pity, as all tradition is fading away :( )

My problem with the car is not so much about it not being traditional as it is about it looking like a Hyundai Sonata:

I actually liked the concept C-XF's front end more than the production version.

I'm sorry but 'classic' Jaguar design doesn't sell well. Look at XJ for example. Anyone under 60 won't buy it. Sometimes you have to come up with something new, otherwise there won't be any future classics.

This is very "Jaguar" design, people who don't see that need to look beyond 1980s into Jaguar's heritage.

It blends the styling of the 1950s-1960s styling with the shape of the Jaguar Kensington concept (which later inspired the likes of Lexus GS - this is in fact a Jaguar shape rather than Lexus). I believe the most connections can be found with the Mark X/420 G. The most important is, however, that it doesn't attempt to ape a previous design (in a more or less lousy way, like exemplified by the S-Type), but carries the Jaguar style forward. It is a very contemporary design, at the same time exhibiting the essence of Jaguar.

on contrary I think it totally lacks even trace of Jaguarish lines - especially from side view.. Front should be somehow acceptable, but the side view is just pure japanese...

1990 Jaguar Kensington concept - http://www.autocult.com.au/img/gallery/full/TorqueOmata4746.jpg

Jaguar is some two decades late in putting this concept into production, but this still is a Jaguar shape. That Lexus (and Daewoo Leganza) went to take advantage of Jag not building it by buying "Kensington-inspired" designs from Giugiaro is Jag's own fault, but this IS a Jaguar.

Sorry but let me hate this car. The design is brilliant, but is just not a Jaguar. It's a cross between a Hyundai, a Mondeo, a Maserati Quattroporte and a bit of Aston Martin

I dont see why some of you say, "it is not a Jaguar", it is impossible for a car not to resemble to any others in the market, the fact that it resembles a bit of another car means it is not a Jaguar anymore :??: will never understand that kind of comments

Do you believe a Jaguar can only be another rehash of the XJ? I've been annoyed with people complaining about the XJ's "recycled" and "stale" design, about X-Type "looking like a deflated XJ", about Jaguar lacking creativity - and now that Jag comes up with something fresh and progressive to lead the way again like they used to do, people are complaining that it's not the same.

Peeps, do look into Jag's history and discover that this is pure Jaguar by the traits it exhibits. That others were trying to be like it is only a compliment.

PS. An S-Type is much more of a Kia or Hyundai than this one.

The XF is exactly what a proper Jaguar should be -- modern, sleek, sporty and stealthy.

You couldn't be possibly more wrong.

No. You're not a Jaguar fan.

If you were a real Jaguar fan, you would consider the S-Type to be an affront to what a Jaguar should be.

Hear hear. Jaguars are normally a bit out of my league; but I once lived with an early 4-litre S-type for a week and upwards of 2000 miles, and while I was a bit underwhelmed at the attempted retro styling, if this is as nice to drive - and as nice a place to be generally - then I'm all for it.

On this pic above I saw that car for the first time. If it wouldn't be listed as an Jaguar, I wouldn't have recognized it. Perhaps for me it could be a Hyundai, too, perhaps a Chrysler or Kia either.

Both cars have the big problem with the total lack of reliability. For that reason I would not buy a car of this brand. I would do so, the these three points were here: Big. Cheap. Reliable.

But I have a Rover-part in daily use: my pens on my desk are lying in a rubber-dish from the top of a Rover 216(?)-dashboard. I've stolen it a long time ago on a junkyard.

That's what the X-Type (a pale imitation of a Jag) was supposed to be. At least Jaguar aren't making an SUV (although I may be speaking too soon).

XF is a nice new car. Much better than the compromised S-type had been. As to how a Jag should look, we LOVE our X308 (1999) XJ8 Vanden Plas----that's sleek and cat-like. The newer X350 models (late 2002 onward) are bloated by comparison. So everybody has design preferences.....

I read the date of liability line by mistake. Silly me!

The car was brought in as a 2008 model however, with VX57____ being a pre-production series used on press cars. That and the other one being listed as 2007 but registered in 2008 muddled my mind.
