New 161bhp version of 2.2-litre turbodiesel brings down the cost of the XF to below £30,000
16 January 2012

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.

Grace and space.

Clearly aimed at the company car driver, this is a good deal.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

drivethedeal is quoting an XF 2.2d SE 4dr Auto at £27600 anyway, (£3280 off) and thats the normal one with 188bhp!

This new weedy basic one should be £25K cash then.

Whilst having a brand new XF for under £30k might seem like a good deal, having this engine for just under £30k seems like a bit of a rip off. So I guess it balances out as being somewhat average value for money.

I think it's about time Jaguar offered Ford's 240bhp EcoBoost engine in the XF.

I think its about time Jaguar offered a manual box in the XF (with the 240 BHP ecoboost?)

Still faster than a 4.2 XJ6 auto, though.

Does Jaguar not even offer a manual 'box even with the diesel four pot? If not, then it is turning its back on a large part of the market, and is also missing out on an opportunity to net some lower CO2 emission figures across the range.

True, although that might change if you were to use the old 3 speed auto on the diesel and the 8 speed on the series 3
