When you’re looking for a new midsize luxury sedan with an opulent cabin, inspired performance, and plenty of room of all of your gear, there’s a new reason to get excited. The 2017 Jaguar XF returns after a full redesigned last year, maintaining a giant leap forward in the luxury car segment. While the 2017 BMW 5 Series remains a competitive option in the segment, the latest Jaguar XF edges it out in a number of areas. Find out which model fulfills your desires, and take the drive from Marco Island to test drive the new Jaguar XF at Jaguar Fort Myers.

Standard Performance

When you’re looking for the luxury car that delivers more power, you’ll find that the 2017 XF base trim provides more than the 2017 BMW 5 Series entry-level model:

  • Jaguar XF: The standard engine on the XF is a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine that puts out a confident 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Choose between rear-wheel and all-wheel drive.
  • BMW 5 Series: The BMW 5 Series also comes with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. However, its base engine—a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four—makes a lackluster 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Even its secondary engine option—a twin-turn 3.0L six-cylinder—generates less power, at 335 hp.


Cargo Space

Both of these models provide comfortable seating for up to five adult passengers, but the 2017 XF guarantees more storage. The trunk of the Jaguar XF measures a cavernous 19.1 cubic feet, a very large measurement for a midsize sedan of any class. The BMW 5 Series trunk can only hold a maximum of 18.7 cubic feet. That might not seem like a huge difference, but when you’re in a crunch for space, it’ll be quite noticeable.

These premium luxury sedans feature standard fare like dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, a sunroof, power adjustable front seats, a touchscreen infotainment system, and a premium audio system. However, the 2017 Jaguar XF base trim comes standard with push-button start—a feature that’s available on the BMW 5 Series but has to be purchased as part of a package upgrade.
