    It doesn't look boring, but it doesn't look compelling either. It was fine in the XE. Just not sure it's the proper look for the XF.

    And seriously... what's with the pencil box roll top cupholder cover?? The Gen 1 XF had it right.... and now it's devolved into this?
    Hey, maybe it's motorized?

    The exterior will be better I guess.

    Wow I'm shocked that you don't like it. You normally like subtle classy and understated styling.

    Do you like it, SKH? Leaving the JLR bias to the side, of course.

    I don't think that picture does it any favors. I'll wait and reserve judgment until I see it in different colors and with alternative wood/metal finishes. To be honest with understated interiors it's all about the tactile quality and the color options as to whether it will feel special to prospective buyers. BTW does it have motorized vents at the ends of the dash?

    I don't think it looks that special in that picture but Audi is also moving to very clean clinical austere interiors (see the latest TT) so perhaps this is the next wave of interiors. Like I've said before, the latest Mercedes interiors are full of delightful finishes and features but overall come across (imo) as a hodgepodge of details and are somewhat tacky.

    I wish Cadillac would start issuing some pictures of the CT6 the way Jaguar is doing with the XF. Perhaps next week?

    I disagree, they've already shown the front end & front 3/4 view. At this point to show anymore would take the wind out of it's big NYC debut IMO.

    Even the materials gap is lost.

    Exactly.

    I feel like going t-rex on everyone's complete lack of style. FFS, you people want glossy wood???

    Now, if there's one square inch of touchable plastic, like in the XE, then all of the hate is wholeheartedly deserved. Luxury car interiors for the most part suck IMO. I've been let down in person too many times now. Leather, aluminum, glass, ceramics, wood whose experience feels like real wood. That should be the minimum standard. It's laughable how stratospheric you have to go to get a car interior experience to match a consumer electronics or home/interior design experience.

    I thought Lincoln was headed that way, but they're barely starting, and limiting it to Black Label is bush league. Cadillac had a good start relative to their segment, but think its 2007 again with that glossy plastic center stack, and then the tacky as F glossy wood. BMW is hopeless short of the 7, Mercedes is maybe kinda starting to get it but were previously disgraceful with anything below the S, Audi is squarely meh but might be showing promise with the new Q7 direction, and would be showing more promise if the new TT backed itself up in the materials department.

    Volvo's the only one getting it, but I bet they won't extend it to the next S/V60 range, so not really.

    Yeah. I mean I understand the move towards simplicity and minimizing the over all look. But the pictures shows a complete understatement in the design, which is not what I really expected from Jaguar.

    But hey, if the materials are exquisite and i comes in 20-30 different color and materials combinations, like most jaguars tend to do, then it's just a matter of finding the right one that works.

    Notice that the hood on the XF has a lot more form or surfacing near the front of the fenders/wings.
