Jaguar XJ

Jaguar today announces prices for its new XJ 2.7 Diesel saloon, which offers drivers an unrivalled blend of value, strong dynamic performance with precise handling and exceptional refinement.

Since its introduction, the XJ's sophisticated styling and lightweight all-aluminium construction have proved a real success in the UK, consistently commanding around half of all petrol sector sales and almost a third of sales in the entire premium F-sector. Now, with the new XJ 2.7 TDVi costing from £43,995 on-the-road, Jaguar's luxury flagship adds an even stronger reason for customers to choose the Jaguar XJ.

With no significant rivals available for less than £48,000, the new XJ TDVi demonstrates a clear advantage on price alone. Factor into the equation a combined cycle fuel economy of 35mpg from the 207PS 2.7 twin-turbo diesel [CO2 214g/km = 29% Benefit In Kind or BIK tax category] and the XJ 2.7 TDVi has the lowest company car tax bill of any car in the luxury sector.

The introduction of the highly acclaimed TDVi twin-turbo diesel, currently fitted to S-TYPE diesel models, to the XJ range marks a significant development for Jaguar’s flagship model.

The new XJ TDVi twin-turbo Diesel means Jaguar now offers a diesel alternative across its entire saloon range, ensuring that the marque can meet the increasing demand for diesel-engined cars in the UK.

The 2.7 twin-turbo Diesel complements the XJ's underlying package well with its lightweight aluminium construction allied to a modern twin-turbo diesel producing dynamic performance with precise handling and exceptional refinement. Producing 207PS (152kW) EEC a diesel-powered XJ saloon will accelerate to 60mph in just 7.8 seconds, while a powerful wave of torque (435Nm) is available virtually throughout the powerband to ensure instantaneous acceleration in every gear.

Jaguar recently achieved remarkable success in the J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study released in May in the US. Improving to second place overall, Jaguar topped the poll as the highest-ranked European nameplate. Jaguar's Halewood plant, where the X-TYPE is manufactured, also received J.D. Power's Gold Award for European plant performance.
