What used Jaguar F-Pace estate will I get for my budget?
Prices for a Jaguar F-Pace start at around £16,000 for an early 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, or possibly even a 2020, car. For post-facelift 2021 cars you'll need in excess of £36,000, up to £45,000 for a 2022 model.

The 2.0-litre petrol isn’t particularly frugal with a combined figure of 38.2mpg, or 30.7mpg under the WLTP tests, and then there is the supercharged, 3.0-litre petrol with a combined average of 31.7mpg (less if you exploit its 375bhp power reserves). Mind, it's not as bad as the 5.0-litre V8 at a mere 23.7mpg.
Not all engines were available before the 1 April 2017 changeover in how car tax is calculated, so we're only looking at the ones that were here. The 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel has the lowest emissions of 129g/km for the rear-wheel drive model or 139g/km with all-wheel drive. The 3.0-litre V6 diesel emits 159g/km, while the 3.0-litre V6 petrol chucks out 209g/km.
If you are looking at an F-Pace that was registered after 1 April 2017, you'll pay the currently flat rate fee (£165 a year and £155 a year for hybrids), but beware if your car cost more than £40,000 when new (many were), because then it'll be hit with an additional surcharge on top of the flat-rate fee between years two and six, and that's currently £355 a year.
