What used Jaguar XF estate will I get for my budget?
This generation of XF Sportbrake is still quite a recent addition to the market, but you can find some used examples for below £20,000. These will be early cars with above-average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from a franchised dealer. Spend between £23,000 and £28,000 and you’ll have your choice of good, clean 2018 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 160, which in some trims achieves an average fuel consumption figure of 54.3mpg. The higher-powered 2.0d 180 isn't far off this at 52.3mpg, although the four-wheel-drive 240 version drops down to 46.3mpg, which is actually pretty close to the much faster and more refined 3.0-litre model's 45.6mpg.
The petrol 2.0i 250 and 300 have very similar overall figures of 37.7mpg and 37.2mpg, respectively.
Exhaust emissions vary depending upon whether your XF has four-wheel drive or not, so the entry-level and mid-range 160 and 180 diesels achieve the best figures of 118g/km and 120g/km, but the four-wheel-drive 240 emits exactly the same amount of CO2 as the larger and more powerful 3.0 V6 at 144g/km.
It's a similar issue with the 250 and four-wheel-drive 300 petrol models, because the former has a figure of 154g/km, while the latter jumps up to 178g/km.
Road tax for all models registered before 1 April 2017 will vary depending upon the emissions the engine produces (see paragraph above for more information). Examples registered after this date attract a flat-rate fee, plus an additional cost for cars that cost more than £40,000 when new. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.
Servicing costs are a little pricier than those of rivals from the likes of Audi, even with Jaguar’s fixed-price servicing scheme for cars over three years old. Expect to pay £245 for a minor and £275 for a major service on a 2.0-litre petrol, £275/£335 for the same work on a 2.0-litre diesel and £295/£395 for the 3.0-litre diesel.
Insurance for an XF Sportbrake should be less than you'd pay for the equivalent BMW, Audi or Mercedes, because the 2.0-litre diesel starts off in group 25, while the 2.0-litre petrol is in group 32 and the top-spec 3.0-litre diesel in group 42.
