2015 Jaguar XF starts at £32,300 and offers over 70mpg

After the dramatic high-wire reveal of the new Jaguar XF last week, the BMW 5 Series challenger has come back down to earth with the unveiling of full pricing and specification details. The 2015 XF is available to order now with first deliveries expected in the autumn, and the range kicks of at £32,300.

The starting price gets you in the most economical model in the range: the 2.0-litre ‘Ingenium’ diesel in Prestige spec with a six-speed manual box. This engine delivers 161bhp and 380Nm of torque, yet is capable of a class-leading 71.7mpg and 104g/km of CO2.

Its figures compare well with a similarly priced BMW 520d, which has 181bhp and 380Nm of torque but only manages 65.7mpg and 114g/km. An Audi A6 Ultra is more powerful still, with 187bhp and 400Nm of torque, but still only achieves 65.7mpg and 113g/km.
