Vying for the attention of discerning driving enthusiasts from Brooklyn and Uniondale, the 2017 Jaguar XF and the 2017 Audi S5 both rest at the front of the luxury sedan segment. Showcasing some of the most advanced technologies and engineering breakthroughs in the industry, neither vehicle is going to back down gently — but the Jaguar XF ultimately outshines its competitor.

Diesel Power

Like the 2017 Audi S5, the 2017 Jaguar XF allows Brooklyn and Uniondale drivers to select between two engines. However, only with the Jaguar XF will you be able to opt for a diesel powerhouse.

That powerhouse is the 2.0L four-cylinder turbo, which is able to put up to 180 hp and a staggering 318 lb-ft of torque at your command. Sourced from the exclusive Jaguar Ingenium range and based around a strong, compact, and feather-light aluminum block, this is an engine that boasts both brain and brawn. If you’d feel more comfortable with a traditional gas model, the Jaguar XF’s 380-hp 3.0L V6 has you covered.

Dynamic and Spacious Interior

When you slip inside the cabin of the 2017 Jaguar XF, the start button begins to pulse with its own light; press it and the motorized rotary gear selector will rise gracefully from the console and the engine will roar to life. Touches such as these demonstrate a commitment to engaging drivers’ desire from the word go, and the interior also offers more practical benefits over rivals like the 2017 Audi S5.

Cargo space is particularly impressive. The Jaguar XF provides a 19.1-cubic-foot trunk — this wide and deep enclosure can accommodate anything from golf clubs to strollers to several pieces of luggage. The Audi S5’s 12.2-cubic-foot trunk comes up short in comparison.

The Height of Technology

From a 10.2-inch InControl Touch Pro touchscreen infotainment system to a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, the 2017 Jaguar XF immediately impresses occupants with a full range of standard and available technologies, many of which aren’t available with the 2017 Audi S5.

Such features include:

  • Wi-Fi Hotspot: Instead of draining your smartphone’s battery and data plan, just access the internet through your onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. Up to eight devices can be connected at once.
  • Advanced Head-Up Display System: Laser technology is used to project a range of important information — including vehicle speed, navigation, cruise control notifications, and Traffic Sign Recognition data — onto the windshield
  • Meridian Sound System: Designed in conjunction with the British audio experts Meridian, this 11-speaker, 825-watt surround sound system offers immersive concert-level audio during every drive.

The 2017 Jaguar XF Overcomes the 2017 Audi S5

These two majestic luxury models are in a league of their own, but the 2017 Jaguar XF still manages to outclass competitors like the 2017 Audi S5. To find out more or arrange a test drive, all you need to do is contact Jaguar Freeport.
