The Jaguar XF has been around for a while but constant revisions have kept pace with its German rivals. But what is it like to live with day to day?

Our car: Jaguar XF Portfolio 3.0 V6 Turbocharged Diesel 300ps RWD List price: from £47,600 Price as tested: £64,595 (includes £16,995 of extras) Official fuel economy: 51.4mpg (EU Combined)

Fuel economy this week: n/a mpg

A delightfully British Jaguar XF finished in Corris Grey with light-coloured Oyster trim inside the cabin has arrived and will be my long term test car for the next three months. The automatic gearbox is teamed with a 3.0 litre V6 twin-turbocharged engine pushing out 300 metric horsepower (that's 296bhp) to the rear wheels.

It’s fully loaded with Jaguar’s latest technologies so I am looking forward to exploring those as well as sharing what it’s like to drive and live with every day.
