Jaguar XF on a bud­get

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - Front Page -

ANEW, lower power ver­sion of the Jaguar XF 2.2 tur­bod­iesel four-cylin­der has just started rolling out the fac­tory door in the UK.

Rated at 120kw, the new­comer will be priced lower than the ex­ist­ing 2.2-litre, tar­get­ing buy­ers on a tighter bud­get.

The 120kw model draws on the strengths of the ex­ist­ing XF 2.2, but sells in the UK for an en­tic­ing £29,950 on the road or the equiv­a­lent of $A44,000.

Don’t ex­pect any­where near this price if the 120kw XF does hit these shores.

De­spite the lower start­ing price, the new model fea­tures an ex­ten­sive range of stan­dard equip­ment in­clud­ing suede-cloth and leather seats, a touch screen cen­trally mounted dis­play, elec­tronic cli­mate con­trol and an ad­vanced eight-speed gear­box com­plete with au­to­matic stop-start.

The XF 2.2D 120kw is ca­pa­ble of ac­cel­er­at­ing from a stand­still to 100km/h in 9.8 sec­onds. On the com­bined cy­cle it achieves 5.4 litres/100km and it emits 149g/km of CO2.
