Our team of second-hand car experts have deliberated over more than 750 secondhand cars, reducing that number down to just 50 of the very best used motors on the market today. Here we announce the ultimate guide to cars that buyers simply cannot miss in the 2019 DieselCar & EcoCar Used Car Top 50. 12th place is reserved for the Jaguar XF (2008 to 2015) and our Best Used Executive Car.
“The XF is the car that put Jaguar back on the map, taking on the 5 Series and beating it in some key areas. It’s rather characterful for a start, and the XF is more fun to drive thanks to feelsome steering, along with excellent rear-wheel drive balance. This doesn’t come at the expense of a ruinously firm ride, so the XF feels as comfortable as a Jaguar should, and almost as good to be a passenger in as it is to drive. The 2.2-litre diesel engine is a sensible choice, but it’s hard to resist the refined power of the 2.7- or 3.0-litre V6 units.”
