Jaguar wants to help company car drivers and fleet managers in deciding on their purchases by launching an online-based company car tax calculator and car comparison tool hosted at jaguar.co.uk/corporatesales. These include intuitive vehicle configuration, personalised tax calculation, free fuel breakeven analysis and the ability to make comparisons of various models.
Furthermore, the car comparator offers visitors the chance to look at data like Jaguar pricing, residual values, BIK, CO2, economy, running costs and specification and compare with other automakers. According to Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK, these tools will assist drivers to consider a Jaguar model as the next company car.
The information is customized to the various needs of the private motorist, company car driver or fleet manager. These details are then illustrated in graphical and table formats. Hicks said that the company takes the corporate market seriously and these services are being offered to make it easy for company car drivers to be aware of what Jaguar can give them.
The calculation can be personalized by users to consider the tax rate they pay, their regular and capital contributions. This figure could cover a time range of as long as four years. There’s a feature in this comparator that determines how drivers can save money by offering fuel breakeven analysis. Jaguar aims to attract the corporate buyer by introducing the 2.2-litre diesel engine with a lower CO2 figure of 135g/km for the 2013MY vehicle. Jaguar is also about to start deliveries of the XF Sportbrake in the UK.
Jaguar XF was introduced in 2008 with its coupe-like design integrated in a sporting saloon platform. It then gained acclaim from all parts of the world for its exquisite combination of dynamic performance, quality materials, luxurious comfort and innovative design.
The 2012 saloon is significantly reinvented with new interior and exterior features. Together with the Jaguar XF Sportbrake, it represents the superior performance of its class as well as its impressive level of functionality and practicality.
The design and styling principle of Jaguar is consistently grounded on the graceful and continuous stream of lines that attract the viewers.
This feature is obvious and manifest in the Jaguar XF Sportbrake but with greater intensity despite the fact that it shares the same wheelbase as the saloon.
One of the elegant and sophisticated lines starts at the propeller-like blades situated at the side air intakes, taking the observer’s eye to the crease in the lower wing, to the sills and around the posterior bumper. Another line starts from the outer corner of the same intakes, accentuating the borders of the front wings while it encircles the car, resulting to the creation of a muscular shoulder line in the XF Sportbrake.
Equipped with the same modern lightblade headlight technology that the saloon has, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake also uses the modern grille and bonnet, thus enhancing its rear-view mirror recognition factor.
