The great news keeps coming thick and fast here in the Petrol News office of late, with the latest positive turn-up for our lovers of automotive excellence being the Jaguar XF named as this year's Auto Trader 'New Car of the Year'.
Based on a survey of 10,000 new car owners and readers of the publication, the accolade is a real feather in the cap for one of the nation's most beloved marques.
The XF scored "exceptionally well" in terms of owner satisfaction, as well as excelling in the categories of safety, comfort, features, accessories and power.
It's therefore a great pleasure for everyone here at Petrol News to add our congratulations to Jaguar in the design and creation of one of the UK's best-loved cars this year.
Indeed, this latest title means the model has now picked up its ninth major UK award since launch, ensuring it now stands as a true favourite among the UK public.
Andy Pringle, cars editor at Auto Trader, summed up this sentiment nicely, when he said: "The Auto Trader New Car Awards prides itself on making new car accolades easier and simpler to understand for car buyers, and there’s no easier way to describe the Jaguar XF than officially the UK's most satisfying car to own."
Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, adds: "The XF truly has become a UK favourite, and with great looks, performance and levels of satisfaction, we can't see where the challengers will come from to take its crown."
