The 2011 Jaguar XFR has a mid-range Total Car Score within the High-Performance Luxury segment.
As the performance derivative of Jaguar’s luxurious XF sedan range, the XFR tops the line with its huge acceleration and road-holding upgrades. Reviews praised the XFR for its gutsy performance, aggressive exhaust note and unique exterior treatment. Its lavish and high-quality cabin is also positively received, as are its sophisticated road manners.
Weaknesses for the XFR are shared with its base model. Complaints include a busy interior control panel and poor rear visibility. Intended more for straight-line performance, the XFR is also not as sharp a handler as several others in this category.
Introduced as a new model one year prior, the XFR adds a more potent supercharged engine, bigger wheels, a revised spoiler, a unique front bumper and specialized suspension tuning over its lesser Jaguar XF counterparts. Next year, the XFR will enjoy the model range's minor interior and exterior styling updates, as well as some new user-interface technology.
