What used Jaguar XE saloon will I get for my budget?
The earliest Jaguar XEs can now be bought for as little as £7000 (with very high mileage). Upping the ante to between £8000 and £12,000 or more gets you a low mileage 2016 or 2017 car with average mileage, all with a full history and bought from an independent or franchised dealer. Between £17,000 and £22,000 should net you a nice 2018 car, with facelifted examples from 2019 starting at around £23,000. For 2020 or 2021 cars, expect to pay at least £25,000, and a little more than that for 2022 cars, depending on trim and mileage.

The least powerful diesel has emissions of a mere 106g/km, with the faster 178bhp versions putting out 137g/km. Both the 197bhp and 237bhp petrols emit 179g/km, while the 3.0-litre supercharged S model has the worst emissions of 194g/km.
Road tax (VED)
Buy an XE registered before April 2017, and you'll enjoy cheaper car tax due to low CO2 emissions. Those registered after that date will pay annual car tax (VED) at the standard rate, currently £165 per year for all petrol and diesel cars. Beware of XEs costing over £40,000 new, as these will attract a supplementary luxury car tax of £355 per year for years two to five.
Servicing and insurance
Service intervals for the 2.0 diesel cars are two years or 21,000 miles, which is good news, while the petrol engines need a service every year or 16,000 miles. Fixed-price servicing plans are available that cover the XE for up to five years or 75,000 miles. Insurance groups range from a reasonable 22 up to 31 for the faster models.
