British automotive group moves to a five-year warranty across the range – and this time, it's not a limited-time offer.

Jaguar Land Rover has joined key premium brand rival Mercedes-Benz in switching to a five-year warranty.

All Jaguar, Land Rover and Range Rover models will adopt a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty from 1 April 2021, across vehicles purchased for both private and business use.

Prior to April 1, petrol- and diesel-powered Jaguar Land Rover models offered a three-year/100,000-kilometre warranty, with the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace bundled as standard with five years and 200,000km of coverage.

The I-Pace's eight-year/160,000km battery warranty will be retained, while the entire range will be covered by a six-year corrosion warranty.

The British brands have previously made five-year warranties available as limited-time offers designed to drive sales, however this month's announcement makes a five-year package a permanent fixture across the line-up.

"This warranty revision is an important change, one we see as a key progression for the Jaguar [Land Rover] brand in Australia and one that is permanent," said Jaguar and Land Rover Australia managing director Mark Cameron.

"We have worked extremely hard at developing the extended warranty for the Australian market and I believe the increased length of the warranty period, plus unlimited kilometres, will deliver an even more enjoyable ownership experience for buyers.

"We are proud to be able to offer our Australian customers such an extensive warranty."

A five-year service plan is standard on the Jaguar I-Pace, Jaguar F-Type and full-size Range Rover, but optional across the rest of the Jaguar Land Rover range.
