New Jaguar XF to bring class-leading RVs and TCO, says Kwik Car
That’s the verdict of industry valuation company Kwik Car in advance of the new model arriving in UK retailers later this month.
Priced from £32,300, the all-new Jaguar XF will hold on to 41% per cent of its value over three years and 60,000 miles, according to Kwik Car; up 4% on the Mercedes E-Class (37%) and 6% on the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series (35%).
According to Kwik Car the XF also has the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) of any comparable premium executive saloon. Over three years / 60,000 miles the XF’s TCO is £3,073 better than a Audi A6, £4,033 better than a BMW 5 Series and £5,191 better than a Mercedes-Benz E Class.
In addition the new XF will offer more affordable insurance than any of its rivals. Insurance ratings will start from Group 25E – five groups better than the equivalent BMW 5 Series, seven better than the Audi A6 and eight better than the Mercedes E-Class.
The all-new XF also bring Jaguar’s new aluminium-intensive lightweight architecture which, along with Jaguar’s efficient new Ingenium diesel engines, helps the XF to achieve official combined fuel economy up to 70.6mpg and CO2 emissions from 104g/km.
Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director Jeremy Hicks said: “The XF has been an enormous success for Jaguar, so replacing it was always going to be a difficult task. The challenge in creating the all-new model was to ensure that it improved on the out-going car in every way, not least in terms of cost of ownership. By ensuring that the new XF offers class-leading residual values, insurance costs, economy and emission levels, we’ve done exactly that.”
