The 2012 Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel is not only the company’s most frugal car ever, but it also represents an opportunity for the brand to target a new wave of Jaguar buyers that in the past may have considered the exclusive marque out of reach from a financial perspective.
On sale now with the first batch of cars heading to a Jaguar showroom near you later in October, there will be just two model 2.2-litre Diesel variants on offer.
The Jaguar 2.2 Diesel Luxury will be priced at $78,900*, while the Premium Luxury with full leather trim and a host of other comforts will be priced at $86,100*.
However, Jaguar Australia are offering a drive away price of $84,990 for an XF 2.2 Diesel Luxury as long as it’s white or black car (read: non-metallic).
The list of standard features is extensive and includes the likes of standard Satellite Navigation with 7-inch touch screen and Bluetooth streaming, Bi-Xenon headlamps, Intelligent Start/Stop, Cruise Control with Automatic Speed Limiter, Electric Parking Brake and Dual Zone Climate Control to name but a small sample of the car’s creature comforts.
All Jaguar diesel models now come standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission with Jaguar Sequential Shift and steering wheel mounted paddles.
Car Advice had just driven the car and will post a full review of the car within the next 24-hours. Let us just say that with 140 kW and 450 Nm, there’s absolutely no shortage of grunt despite a combined fuel consumption figure of 5.4L/100km.
