Ownership cost

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?

MPG

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.

CO2 emissions

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

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

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 groups

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.
