At the prestigious and influential Fleet News Awards 2016, the outstanding Jaguar XF was named as the Best Executive Car, with the exquisite XE in the Premium Car category coming as Highly Recommended.

The British marque’s saloon models have excelled in fleet awards already this calendar year, achieving honours at UK Car of the Year Awards, SME Company Car of the Year Awards and BusinessCar Awards.

2015 saw the launch of these two critically acclaimed Jaguar models, which have helped the brand to reach a 30% Jaguar sales increase and Jaguar Land Rover Fleet and Business sales growth of 52% year-on-year in 2015.

In the 28th year of the Fleet News Awards, senior fleet motoring journalists, fleet managers and residual value rate setters came together to form the judging panel for the manufacturer award categories, and they were all impressed by the XF’s offering.

The judges stated: ‘The XF takes Jaguar’s product offering to a whole new level. Well-equipped, great to drive, outstanding interior quality and spacious for front and rear passengers – it has high appeal for drivers while the low running costs make it the perfect executive car to have on the fleet.’

Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: ‘The XF epitomises the Jaguar brand in 2016, it offers the complete package: fantastic drive, great looks, class-leading style, competitive prices and low running costs. With XF, XE, XJ and F-PACE – arriving in retailers in the spring – Jaguar now offers one of the best line-ups in the business for fleet buyers and users.’
