New Jaguar XF SE Business and XF Sport dieselsXF Sport now comes with full aerodynamic kit

27 January 2012

Jaguar has amended the 2012 XF model range again, adding two new 2.2-litre diesel variants: the XF SE Business and the XF Sport.

The Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel SE Business is based on the entry-level SE specification, but adds standard fit satellite navigation. The XF Sport, meanwhile, is a new model exclusive available with the higher-powered 187bhp 2.2-litre turbodiesel.

The XF SE Business offers 161bhp

XF 2.2 Diesel SE Business: sat nav as standard

It’s only available on the recently introduced lowered-powered 2.2-litre turbodiesel, which offers 161bhp in combination with claimed fuel economy of 52.3mpg combined and a company car tax pleasing 149g/km CO2.

So no prizes for guessing it’s chiefly aimed at business buyers - the clue was probably in the name.

However, with a kit list that also includes a 400W audio system with DAB digital radio, part leather upholstery, bi-Xenon headlights and start-stop, it may prove tempting to private customers as well.

Priced at £31,500, the new SE Business is £1,550 more expensive than the entry-level Jaguar XF – saving you £500 on the £2,050 cost of the sat nav if optioned on the basic car.

Key upgrades include the full aerodynamic kit, previously only available on the 3.0-litre V6 Diesel S with 275hp (and a price tag starting at £41,950…). This includes revised styling for the front and rear bumpers, sill skirts and a subtle boot-lip spoiler.

The new XF Sport also receives an interior trim boost in the form of unique piano black trim, ‘Sport’ decals and aluminium pedals. This is in addition to part-leather upholstery with contrast stitching, electric heated front seats, heated front windscreen, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.

The XF 2.2 Diesel Sport is competitively priced at £34,950.

Both vehicles are available to order now.
