Jaguar will start to deliver the new XF Sportbrake in the UK during the later part of this year. Its pricing details and engine lineup were recently unveiled. Jaguar said that the XF Sportbrake is available with a lineup of efficient and powerful diesel engines in 2.2- and 3.0-litre capacities, marking the debut of new derivatives based on the 2.2-litre diesel unit.
The engine is offered in either 163 PS or 200 PS, which replaces the current 190PS output engine. The two offer impressive CO2 emissions figures, beginning with only 135 g/km. The fuel economy rating is at 55.4 mpg. The Sportbrake is available with a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 engine in 240 PS Diesel and 275 PS Diesel S derivatives.
Each would emit only 163 g/km of CO2 and will offer 46mpg on the combined cycle. Even when the XF Sportbrake is determined to be versatile in Diesel S form, it could sprint from zero to 60mph in just 6.1-seconds. The 240PS variant can accomplish the same move in 6.7-seconds.
The XF saloon will also receive the new engine upgrades. The new 2.2-litre Diesel engines, when used on the saloon, have the same economy and CO2 figures as the Sportbrake. Deliveries of the saloon will start this September, with starting prices of £29,940 on-the-road. The XF saloon and Sportbrake will both use the eight-speed automatic gearbox and Stop/Start.
These will be standard throughout the engine range. They improve the emissions on the V6 Diesel engines by 6% on the saloon. The XF range is available with the Meridian audio system for the first time. It replaces the Bowers and Wilkins system and pledging the precise yet powerful sound quality with the use of sophisticated amplifier and high quality speaker units.
Heading the XF range is the new XFR Speed Pack. It features a speed limiter raised to 174mph. The 510PS XFR Speed Pack car gets revised engine and gearbox calibration to go with the increased top speed. The Speed Pack car gets a new front aero splitter and a new rear wing. The range also includes a new 3.0-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine developing 340 PS.
The engine, which is also set to appear in the new F-TYPE, replaces the naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 in the XF range. The 3.0-litre V6 S/C can accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds and reach a limited top speed of 155mph, returning fuel economy figures of 30mpg on the combined cycle and offering a CO2 emissions level of 224g/km.
