Lower fuel costs and improved tax efficiency
The latest generation of common-rail diesel technology in the X-TYPE 2.2 brings high efficiency and precise fuel metering, resulting in such low fuel consumption that around 630 miles of driving are possible on one tank of fuel. As well as offering impressive fuel economy, this technology also ensures an extremely smooth, clean-burning engine and low CO2 emissions.
The fuel-efficient 2.2 litre Diesel engine offers a combined cycle fuel economy of 47mpg from the saloon. (CO2 159g/km = 18% Benefit In Kind or BIK tax category) and the X-TYPE 2.2 Diesel has one of the lowest company car tax bills of any car in its sector.
In addition, as most of the X-TYPE 2.2 Diesel's torque is produced at low to medium engine speeds where emissions are at their lowest, it has easily achieved the required EU 4 compliance alongside the X-TYPE 2.0 Diesel.
This brings business and corporate users in the UK a potential reduction in their annual company car tax bill of around 3%, so cost conscious business users looking to transfer to the new X-TYPE 2.2 Diesel will find price, comfort, driver appeal and comparatively low running costs an attractive package.
Thrilling performance and a price to match
"The new 2.2 litre engine gives X-TYPE Diesel customers more of what we know they like: more power, more refinement and of course more choice," says Jaguar Cars Managing Director, Bibiana Boerio. "The 2.0 litre turbo-diesel that signalled Jaguar's arrival in the diesel market, has proved a great success for us across Europe - and we have every expectation that this new model will be even more popular."
Close attention to detail has made the new X-TYPE 2.2 Diesel remarkably quiet and refined for a genuine performance model. A rigid cylinder block helps minimise transmitted sound, whilst Noise Reduction Technology adjusts engine settings three times every millisecond. Laminated glass and tuned glass fibre bonnet insulation reduce engine noise to a whisper, even when stationary. Add the flexibility of a six-speed gearbox to make maximum use of the turbo-diesel’s power and you have one of the smoothest, quietest, most responsive diesel cars in its class.
Two new exterior body colours - Winter Gold and Indigo - have also been introduced, and a new 15-spoke, 16-inch Antares alloy wheel is introduced from 2006 Model Year X-TYPE range. The new X-TYPE 2.2D goes on sale from September.
