New lower priced Jaguar XF diesel coming
Late last month, the new Jaguar XJ driven by David
Madgwick, an independent tester, accompanied by navigator Alexander Madgwick, the scrupulously standard
XF passed through four countries (Birmingham, England to Munich, Germany) taking in a mix of winding
country roads, motorways and dense urban traffic. The XF, with just over 5,000 km on the 'clock' at
departure, consumed just 64 litres of fuel to average a remarkable 4.9 l/100 km.

Jaguar Australia has announced sharp pricing for the new
8-speed 2.2 Diesel XF Luxury which is scheduled for a local release in October, just weeks after its UK
The new 2.2 Diesel XF Luxury will see the Jaguar range starting from $78,900* providing an opportunity
for Jaguar to take a strong foothold in the competitive segment with high levels of luxury, refinement,
performance and equipment expected of a premium European product.
"To coincide with the launch of the 12MY range Jaguar Australia has taken the opportunity to
redesign the specification and pricing to ensure spec and feature impress consumers as much as the
redesigns seen on the product and, of course, to catch the attention of customers who may now consider
Jaguar as a purchase proposition for the first time." Said Kevin Goult, Jaguar Australia's Brand
12MY highlights include:
- Dramatic design changes bring the XF's exterior into line with the XJ flagship.
- Refreshed exterior complemented by new alloy wheel choices and paint colours.
- Bi-function HID xenon headlamps incorporate LED daytime running lights with a distinctive 'J-Blade'
signature on all models.
- Tail lamps are now LED for stop, tail and direction indicator functions.
- New AJ-i4D diesel model is the most economical Jaguar ever with 450 Nm of torque.
- Intelligent Stop/Start technology, with impressive fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of 5.4 l/100 km
- New 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox with optimised response rates, shift quality and efficiency.
- Upgraded interior with new seats, instrument panel and optional 1200W Bowers & Wilkins premium
With the new Bi-function HID Xenon headlamps, the 2012 Jaguar XF now looks more like the CXF concept
car freshening the look of the vehicle and bringing the vehicle into line with the looks of XJ flagship
Goult continues "Jaguar XF has always been a good looking vehicle, but now, we're stunning ... The
new look should and will entice customers away from our competitors and why wouldn't it with a starting
price of $78,900* and impressive fuel consumption figures."
The 2.2 Diesel model delivers an impressive fuel consumption of 5.4 l/100km and promises to be the
most efficient Jaguar yet to be produced. To prove it, recently Jaguar drove one of the new 2.2 diesels
from the factory in which it was manufactured at Castle Bromwich Birmingham (England) to Munich (Germany)
delivering a staggering 1,313 km on a single tank of diesel.
The new pricing is delivered without compromising specification and standard features continue to
include, Bluetooth Connectivity & Audio Streaming, Jaguar Smart Key System with Keyless Start, Rain
sensing wipers, Automatic climate control with air filtration and dual zone temperature control for
driver and front passenger, Auto on/off Bi-Xenon and LED Daytime Running Lamps.
Set to be available in Australia from early October, the new XF 2.2 forms part of the new 2012 model
range. Benefitting from a fresh new look, upgraded interiors and equipment as well as improvements in
efficiency and refinement, the latest model XF looks set to build on the achievements of the model it
replaces. The 2012 Jaguar XF range now starts from $78,900*.
XF is Jaguar's best-selling model across the world. With over 80 international awards since launch and
strong sales, it is established as a major player in its competitive sector.
