Jaguar says its new diesel XF offers “greater value than ever before,” which is another way of saying it’s the cheapest way ever into the executuve saloon.
The XF 2.2 Diesel 163 is a down-tuned version of the recently unveiled XF Diesel, using the same 2.2-litre engine but with power lowered from 190bhp to 163bhp.
The 27bhp loss means £1,000 chopped off the list price, so the XF range now starts under £30,000 for the first time. It’s £29,950 for an XF 2.2 Diesel SE.
Fuel economy, however, stays the same with the lower power output, pegged at 52.3mpg with emissions of 149g/km. VED payments, it follows, stay the same too: both XF Diesels are in Band F, which costs £130 per year.
Sadly the 0-62mph time goes down, from 8.5 seconds in the more powerful diesel to 9.8 in this new version. Top speed is 130mph.
The new XF Diesel is on sale now, with first deliveries expected in March.
