What used Jaguar XF estate will I get for my budget?
This generation of Sportbrake is still fairly new, so don’t expect to find one for below £33,000. This will buy you a 2017 model with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, from a franchised dealer. Spend between £35,000 and £40,000 and you’ll have your choice of good, clean 2017 cars in higher specs, with a low mileage and bought from a Jaguar dealer.
How much does it cost to run a Jaguar XF estate?
The most economical is the 2.0d 180, which in some trims achieves an average claims fuel consumption of 52.2mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 120g/km. This is actually a better figure than achieved by the lower-powered 2.0d 163, at 50.4mpg. The petrol 2.0i 250 claims just 33.2mpg.
Road tax for cars registered after April 2017 will be at the basic flat rate, currently £140 per year, but XF Sportbrakes that cost in excess of £40,000 new, which is most of them, attract a supplementary charge on top of that.
Servicing costs are a little pricier than rivals’, so it’s worth finding out whether the car you’re looking at is already covered by a pre-paid servicing package. If it is, you might not have to pay for any services until it’s five years old. If it isn't, your XF Sportbrake will be eligible for Jaguar’s fixed-price servicing scheme once it hits three years old, although even then it won’t be as cheap to maintain as its rivals.
