A new-entry level version of the Jaguar XF has been launched, bringing the price of the BMW 5-series rival below £30,000 for the first time. The latest £29,950 XF is powered by a 161bhp version of the 2.2-litre turbodiesel Jaguar recently added to the XF range.

The new model can crack 0-62mph in 9.8sec and reach a top speed of 130mph. Combined economy is rated at 52.3mpg and it emits 149g/km of CO2. For comparison, the 188bhp 2.2D XF offers identical economy and CO2 but it covers the 0-62mph sprint in 8.5sec and reaches a top speed of 142mph. Both cars feature an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox with stop-start.

Standard equipment on the new model includes part-leather seats, a touchscreen in the centre console and climate control. The latest XF is available to order at Jaguar showrooms now, its list price being £1000 less than the current entry-level model.

This 161bhp version is spun out to look like a £1000 saving from Jaguar. It is in fact the price the 188bhp version should have been from the start. For each 188bhp version produced, Jaguar are making a quick £1000 profit from a different ECU map.

As I mentioned earlier I suspect you will find there is more cut off the spec. than just the headline bhp, in fact it may turn out to be more than a thousand pounds worth of cut spec.!

I suspect this base version will also have competitive lease rates to entice company car drivers. Personally though, as much as I like the XF I'd take a 520d auto any day.

Didn't the V6 petrol have a sticker price under £30k at launch?
