  • 2012 Jaguar XF

  • 2012 Price: $53,000
  • True cost to own: $80,552
  • Fuel economy MPG: 16 city, 23 highway

Jaguar has built a reputation on designing some of the world's most beautiful automobiles, and the 2012 Jaguar XF is part of that heritage.

If you haven't been following Jaguar the past decade or so, its inclusion among the cheapest-to-own luxury cars might be a surprise. Jaguar has enjoyed huge improvements in reliability and quality in recent years, relentlessly diminishing costs of upkeep.

A 385-horsepower, V-8 engine sends its output to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

Even in its base guise reflected in the listed price, XF is loaded with standard features such as leather seating, eight air bags, dual-zone automatic climate control, a navigation system and a 10-speaker audio system with a USB/auxiliary input jack for music-playing devices.

Jaguar oozes tradition, and today it boasts value as well.
