Well, it will be that or the attractive idea of owning a bona fide British sports sedan (what? It’s British Racing Green, isn’t it?) For relative pittance. Either way, there are thousands of reasons why German backers dominate this segment, and the XF won’t have an easy time proving it can win.
Facing a long drive from Brighton to Sheffield, I bit Felix’s hand when he offered to swap my Mini Convertible for his big Jag sedan. Comfortable and very refined it proved, the new infotainment is ace and did around 40 mpg – decent for a petrol. Suffice it to say that I arrived in a good mood.
