Fleet News Awards 2010: Best Executive Car

The Jaguar XF was named the Best Executive Car at the 2010 Fleet News awards.

Jaguar has succeeded in creating a true premium product in its XF saloon with high levels of standard equipment and a range of six and eight-cylinder models.

Leather seats, sat-nav, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth help increase the desirability of the XF as an aspirational vehicle and contribute towards impressive residual values. New 3.0-litre diesel versions launched in 2009 offer a great blend of performance and fuel efficiency and keep running costs at a manageable level.

The XF is engaging to drive but also provides excellent comfort and refinement, seeming to shrink huge distances spent behind the wheel.

Judges’ comments
The XF was seen as the most aspirational fleet car on the market. Its new 3.0-litre diesel engine has made it stand out in its sector. Its improved emissions, fuel economy and lower running costs, combined with huge driver appeal, makes it a winner.

The BMW 5 Series was highly commended by the judges.
