The XE, XF and F-Pace are now available with the new version of the 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine, which produces 296bhp and 295lb ft

Jaguar has extended the availability of its new Ingenium petrol engine, a 2.0-litre unit producing 296bhp and 295lb ft of torque, to the XE, XF and F-Pace.

It’s the first time the engine has been available in the cars, following its debut in the four-cylinder F-Type, which was revealed at the New York motor show earlier this year. 

With the new engine, Jaguar claims fuel economy of 37mpg for the F-Pace, 40mpg for the XF and 41.5mpg for the XE.

CO2 emission for the XF and XE are 163g/km and 157g/km respectively. The F-Pace's figure is yet to be confirmed.

The new engine is at its quickest in the XE; Jaguar claims a 0-62mph time of 5.5sec, while the XF and F-Pace take 5.6sec and 5.7sec.

With 296bhp, the XF will sit in a fairly unique place in the market; the only petrol Audi A6 available is the warmed-up S6, while other rivals’ closest cars in terms of power are either diesel, or more performance-oriented, such as the BMW 5 Series 540i xDrive, and Mercedes-Benz E 350 d

Back in February, Jaguar added to the ranges of the three cars with 197bhp and 247bhp petrol engines, making this the third 2.0-litre petrol Ingenium variant in the cars’ ranges, sitting above the 250bhp unit.

Jaguar Land Rover is also poised to replace its V6 engines with 3.0-litre, straight-six Ingenium petrol engines.

Jaguar F-Pace 2.0d R-Sport

Jaguar takes a typically sporting approach to its F-Pace but it isn't enough to better its sibling - the Land Rover Discovery Sport - as of yet

Expecting the inevitable what are JLR doing but if there's demand why not? 4 cylinder petrol has to be smoother than diesel equivalent so look forward to trying it in a XF sportbrake.

As I found out the new Ingenium engines for the XE has a waiting list. Jaguar, I'm told, under estimated how popular they'd be. Which I personally thing is wonderful news! So looking forward to getting one, and hopefully more reliable than my BMW which constantly broke down (now have a run-about until I get a Jaguar).

Probably more a reflection on worries amongst the public about buying diesel at the moment! Imagine buying one, and finding that in 2 years time your city banned all diesels...

In early independent reviews the petrol Ingenium units have got nowhere near the official fuel consumption figures. Of course the diesels are very poor in this regard too, with even the lightest diesel XE barely able to crack 40mpg. Let's hope the new straight six engines are more competitive.

Not sure where you are getting your data, but my XE diesel automatic has averaged just over 50mpg over the last 25,000 miles. Depending on traffic I can get anywhere between 47-60mpg on my normal M25 commute. Lower than the official figures, but perfectly acceptable.

My experience of Ingenium diesels is pretty woeful economy. Official average for Disco Sport 180 of 53mpg. Mine's averaged 32mpg since I got it. If petrol had been available last year, would have probably gone for the 240hp Ingenium for better refinement and the kind of power this car needs.

You know, the economy of cars is where people really loose their temper. You see, we also have a Disco Sport alongside my company RRS. The Disco Sport gets about 34 Mpg, while the RRS about 28. Now, here is my point 'Jimbo', I bought my mother a Mini Cooper in 2015, a petrol I admit, and she was delighted when she picked it up from Bowker Preston. It broke down within 2 days, and she gets 32 miles per gallon.

That is two less than our Disco Sport and only four more than my company RRS.

So, I'm afraid, I cannot accept the economy is woeful. What I will say is that in order to accommodate the tank for diesel filtration, the Disco Sport fuel tank is VERY VERY small. And that IS a problem.

Given the general backlash against diesel engines, I think JLR are doing well to offer a wide range of petrol engines. That said, I do hope the engines are refined (clearly mixed reviews to date), and deliver the performance they promise.

I also hope JLR get on to the hybrid wagon quickly. Mild Hybrids (and not plug-ins) seem to be the best interim step in an environment where diesels are being avoided. In the premium space in the UK, the only providers are Lexus, and it would be good to get some choice.

Where are the real world fuel economy figures for this engine?

It is not hard to arrange various types of test to demonstrate fuel efficiency.
