Auto review: With a fresh interior and a $7,105 price cut, the Jaguar XF is a luxury car bargain

All the little details create the impression of a car far more expensive than it is. True luxury is rarified, and it's something Jaguar does better than most of its competition, who to be more concerned with mass production than class production.

The 2021 Jaguar XF is something special, a unique flavor in a segment overwhelmed by mass-produced German luxury sedans. How can you tell your Bimmer, Merc or Audi apart from your neighbor’s?

The Jaguar isn’t produced in the same numbers. It’s a sedan worth savoring, something distinctive that now costs less. And that makes it well worth considering, if you’re smart enough to realize why.
