(Whitley, Coventry – 12/05/2014). The Jaguar XF has won not one but two awards this week, with nods from both Autocar and Honestjohn.co.uk.

The XFR was one of just eight cars currently on sale to win a coveted Five-Star Accolade in the famously demanding Autocar road test. While the standard XF won Large Executive Car honours at the Honestjohn.co.uk awards – for the third year in a row.

The Honestjohn.co.uk awards are unique in the motoring world in that the winners aren’t picked by a panel of judges, they’re selected by which model in each category received the most page views from readers over the previous year.

In other words, the winners are the cars that attract the most attention from the site’s visitors, of which there are 1.6 million every month.

Honestjohn.co.uk editor Dan Harrison said: "The British-built Jaguar XF competes in a tough market and is up against several of the German manufacturers, but Honestjohn.co.uk users clearly love the style and class of the Jaguar, with it coming top in the Large Executive category. We're also fans of the XF due to its luxurious interior and immense refinement, so it's no surprise to see it winning this award for the third year running.”

And, as well as proving to be a huge hit with car fans on Honestjohn.co.uk, the XF has also wowed critics with its performance – especially in XFR form.

Only a handful of cars manage to escape the Autocar road test team’s ruthless scrutiny with a full five-star rating in tact – making it one of the most sought-after plaudits in the car industry. And the XFR was one of the lucky few in 2014.

The Autocar team said: “Jaguar’s XF redefined the company’s range. The XFR super-saloon redefined its sense of fun.”
