2014 Jaguar XF has higher MPG, lower CO2, better BIK

Jaguar’s engineers have been busy tweaking the entry-level engine in the 2014 XF. The latest examples will be powered by a 2.2-litre ECO2 engine that makes the car more efficient, cheaper to run and cheaper to tax.

The 2014 Jaguar XF Saloon and Sportbrake both use a 2.2-litre diesel chucking out 163PS. The latest ECO2 engine is capable of delivering 57.7mpg with CO2 emissions of 129g/km, down from 55.4mpg and 135g/km in the previous cars.

The economy figure should represent significant savings, particularly for anyone who racks up a lot of motorway miles. The lower CO2 figure should prove a bonus, too, as company car drivers will pay 19 per cent benefit in kind as opposed to 21 per cent. Ordinary punters, meanwhile, will see their annual vehicle tax rate fall from £125 to £105.

The gains in economy have been achieved through use of revised cooling, larger exhaust gas recirculation valves and Jaguar’s clever 8-speed gearbox.

The 2014 Jaguar XF will also come with an improved sat-nav with a slightly less annoying keyboard and clearer highlighting of one-way roads, while the bodywork will be available in revised colours — Osimium replaces Crystal Blue and Dark Sapphire replaces Indigo Blue.
