Jaguar unleashes its latest diesel engined XF

It may look the same, but this XF starts from under 30 grand!

JAGUAR’S popular XF range now offers customers the option of a 163 PS version of its popular 2.2-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine.
Based on the existing existing 190PS model, this slightly less powerful car also costs less, with the XF range now starting at £29,950 on the road.
The new model features an extensive range of standard equipment including suede cloth and leather seats, a touch screen centrally mounted display, electronic climate control and an advanced 8-speed gearbox complete with automatic Stop-Start.
The XF 2.2D 163 PS is capable of accelerating from a standstill to 62mph in 9.8 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 130 mph.  On the combined cycle it can achieve 52.3 mpg and it emits 149 g/km of CO2.
The first deliveries customers will get their cars in March.
The XF continues to enjoy a strong following in the UK having won over 80 awards since it was launched in 2008.  Since then it’s been subject to a relentless programme of engineering and aesthetic enhancements. The 12MY XF is the most efficient and best equipped iteration yet with the diverse range encompassing the highly efficient new 163 PS 2.2-litre Diesel model, up to the performance-focused XFR, equipped with a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine producing a mighty 510 PS.
