The Jaguar XF - some of you like it and some of you loath it...I like it and personally think that the new cat is going to be Jaguar's saviour. Following on from our recent reports of XF pre-order popularity, comes the news that the XF has been named the 2008 'Car of the Year' by What Diesel magazine. The luxury sport saloon claimed the top prize after clinching the award for top performing diesel in the 'Best Executive Car' category.

This is the tenth international award the model has received since its Frankfurt debut and with 2000 cars sold during March in the UK, it is clear that the I am not the only one who finds the XF appealing.

"It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Jaguar XF has won the coveted title of What Diesel Car of the Year 2008. It is well deserved and is testament to all the fine people that are proud to say that they work for Jaguar. The car drives exceptionally, and looks absolutely stunning and catapults Jaguar right up the road to success," said Ian Robertson, editor of What Diesel.

The 2.7-litre diesel was selected from over one hundred new models by a panel of 10 motor industry experts. Praised for its 'masterful blend of beautiful styling, quality, practicality, luxury and excellent ride and handling' the XF claimed victory ahead of other category winners including, the Fiat 500, Ford Mondeo, Audi A5 and Volkswagen Eos.

"I am absolutely delighted that the XF has been named 'Car of the Year' by the jurors of What Diesel magazine. The diesel market is incredibly important for the XF - and with competition getting tougher each year, this award is all the more satisfying," said Geoff Cousins, UK Managing Director of Jaguar Cars.

The XF goes on sale in Australia on June 1st, you can follow this link to check out the pricing.
