What used Jaguar F-Pace estate will I get for my budget?
Prices for a Jaguar F-Pace start at around £18,000 for a 2.0-litre diesel version with a manual gearbox, or for a more luxurious version with a higher mileage. Spend between £20,000 and £22,000 for an average mileage car from 2016 or 2017, bought from an independent dealer, while £25,000 to £30,000 will net you a 2018 car from a franchised dealer. Expect to spend between £32,000 and £36,000 on a 2019 car.
How much does it cost to run a Jaguar F-Pace estate?
It’s a mixed bag because some engines are quite efficient and some are the antithesis of frugal. To start with, there’s a rear-wheel-drive version equipped with a 2.0-litre diesel engine and a manual gearbox that has a combined average of 58.9mpg under the older NEDC tests and £135 road tax. The all-wheel-drive version of the same model is only slightly less efficient at 54.3mpg under the NEDC tests, or 46.8mpg under the later, more realistic WLTP tests.
Things are a little pricier once you get into the V6 engine range. The 3.0-litre diesel has a combined average of 37.9mpg under the WLTP tests, and road tax for early examples is £220.
The 2.0-litre petrol isn’t particularly frugal with a combined average of 38.2mpg, or 30.7mpg under the WLTP tests, and then there is the supercharged, 5.0-litre petrol. This engine is the most costly to run because of its combined average of 31.7mpg (less if you exploit its 375bhp power reserves) and road tax of £305.
If you are looking at an F-Pace that was registered after 1 April 2017, you'll pay a flat rate currently £145 a year. And then you'll need to go for either the least powerful diesel or a 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel equipped with two-wheel drive only to avoid paying the additional £320 surcharge on top of the flat-rate £145 fee for annual road tax. This cuts in for cars that cost more than £40,000 new.
