Jaguar has introduced a new entry-level Jaguar XF to the market. The XF 2.0 Petrol Luxury is currently the company’s most affordable model, at A$68,900, taking over from the Jaguar XF 2.2-litre Diesel Luxury, which also receives a A$9,000 price cut for 2013 to A$69,900.
The XF 2.0 Petrol Luxury features a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine lifted straight out of the Range Rover Evoque. Australians could also find the same engine under the bonnet of Ford’s EcoBoost Falcon. It generates 177kW of power and a peak torque of 340Nm between 2,000-4,000rpm.
The all-aluminium engine weighs just 138kg and is capable of sending the Jaguar XF 2.0 Petrol Luxury from 0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds. It tops out at 241km/h. Combined fuel consumption is rated at 8.9L/100km and CO2 emissions of 207g/km.
Besides the new entry-level model, the entire 2013 XF range also get an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox (replaces previous 6-speed unit without weight penalty) and satellite navigation as standard. The 2013 XF and XJ models also bring with them enhanced iPod interface and a new level of user-friendliness in the satellite navigation system.
The sat-nav system now incorporates a dynamic zoom feature that automatically zooms in when the car arrives at a junction, both on local roads and freeways, to make route selection easier.
A couple of optional sound systems are also offered on the 2013 range – a 380W 11-speaker system, or a high-end 825W 15-speaker Meridian system.
The 2013 Jaguar XF and XJ models are available for order now.
