Jaguar's not going to launch it for another six months, but Autoblog UK has been given an exclusive first drive of what could be the most important and best-selling version of the 2012 model year XF – the 188bhp 2.2-litre turbodiesel version.

This new version of the XF, is powered by the same 2.2-litre, four-cylinder diesel that's also currently fitted in another of Jaguar Land Rover's models, the Land Rover Freelander and the upcoming Range Rover Evoque.
