The judging panel was were from all areas of the motor industry including experts from What Car?. The judges picked the winners based on running costs, reliability, driveability, quality, longevity, safety features and desirability.
Andy Whyman, XF Chief Programme Engineer commented: "We worked tirelessly on the development of the XF for its introduction in 2008. Since then, over 38,000 have been sold in the UK and the momentum continues. To be recognised by What Car? means a great deal to the whole XF team and we're delighted to add another award to our ever-growing tally."
