Readers of Auto Express magazine have voted the new Jaguar XF Britain's best car in the 2009 Driver Power survey.

The results revealed that the Jaguar XF secured the overall number one spot with drivers praising the Jaguar's combination of luxury, comfort and driving dynamics.

Mike O'Driscoll, Jaguar's Managing Director, said: "Securing top place in the UK motoring community's top driver satisfaction poll is an excellent result. This reflects our continuing commitment to produce a consistent high quality driving and ownership experience for all of our customers."

The Auto Express survey questioned driver satisfaction in a host of key areas - including reliability and build quality, cost of ownership and running costs, as well as performance, ride and handling. Questions also focused on a vehicle's practicality, comfort and ease of driving.

The Jaguar XF, which was launched in March 2008, scored an impressive score of 91.18 per cent.

David Johns, Editor of Auto Express, said: "As the reigning Auto Express car of the year, Jaguar's XF executive saloon is a triumph. Drivers think so too, giving the sumptuous four-door higher scores than any other car in the UK."

The Jaguar XF range has just been updated in the UK with an all-new high performance XFR model featuring a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 as well as two new 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines.

These new engines offer significantly increased performance coupled with improved emissions, economy, driveability and refinement. Both new diesel engines deliver combined average fuel consumption of 42.0 mpg - nearly a 12 per cent improvement on the acclaimed 2.7-litre engine. Both diesel Jaguar XF models produce just 179g/km - an improvement of 10 per cent.
