Car reviews - Jaguar - XF - 2.2D sedan
Jaguar eyes new customers with four-cylinder diesel XF 2.2D, priced from under $80K
12 Oct 2011
JAGUAR’S new 2.2D luxury sedan brings many firsts, both to the polished XF nameplate and the hallowed British brand behind it.
As the first four-cylinder XF, it’s also Jaguar’s most efficient model ever, as well as being the cheapest large Jaguar in memory and the entry to the facelifted 12MY XF range.
Despite that, this sub-$80,000 large luxury sedan – a direct competitor to volume-selling German diesels like BMW’s 520d and E220 CDI sedan – offers more performance than its key rivals, without skimping on the quality, luxury and refinement expected at this level.
Will Jaguar’s exclusivity, the XF’s undoubted style and the 2.2D’s refined performance draw as many Australian buyers as it deserves to?
