4.0 out of 5

With experts expecting the economical Jaguar XE 2.0-litre diesel to retain more of its original purchase price after three years than either the Audi A4, Mercedes C-Class or BMW 3 series, the XE is a surprisingly cost-effective car. Overall running costs are among the best in its class.

Jaguar XE MPG & CO2

The engine range now consists of just the D200 diesel and P250 and P300 petrol models, but it’s still worth covering some of the dropped engines in case you’re looking at nearly new or used models.

The least expensive XE to run should be the now-discontinued D180. With CO2 emissions from 146g/km, the 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel with an automatic gearbox is capable of up to 50.7mpg.

If you’re looking at a brand new XE, then the D200 engine that’s still offered is a great all-round option thanks in part to its mild-hybrid technology. You can get up to a claimed 57.6mpg from it in the entry-level R-Dynamic S model, along with reasonable CO2 emissions of 128g/km.

The XE’s turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engines are still reasonably frugal given their good performance. The P250 with rear-wheel drive can manage up to 36.2mpg, although its emissions from 177g/km put it in a high BiK band. With more power and four-wheel drive, the P300 can manage up to 33.6mpg, while emissions climb to 190g/km, putting it in the most expensive BiK bracket.

It's a shame there's no plug-in hybrid version of the Jaguar XE to rival the BMW 330e and Mercedes C300 de, because these both boast low BiK for company-car drivers and an electric range of around 30 miles.

After the first year's CO2-based road tax (generally included in the on-the-road price), all Jaguar XEs cost £150 a year to tax. Those with a list price (including options) of more than £40,000 are liable for an additional surcharge of £325 a year in years two to six, bringing the annual bill to £475 during that period.

Insurance group

The entry-level Jaguar XE is now the R-Dynamic S. and wWith a D200 diesel engine, it starts in insurance group 30, while the P250 2.0-litre petrol R-Dynamic HSE sits in group 31. The P300 2.0-litre falls into group 33 due to the additional performance it offers. We recommend getting an insurance quote before you make a purchase decision.

Warranty

All models in Jaguar's range come with a three-year/unlimited-mileage warranty, which is on par with rivals from BMW and Mercedes. Audi, however, puts a 60,000-mile limit on its three-year warranty. All Jaguar buyers also receive three years of breakdown cover. Extended warranties are available at extra cost.

Servicing

The 2.0-litre diesel versions of the Jaguar XE only require servicing every two years or 21,000 miles, which is longer than many of its rivals. It’s worth noting that the 2.0-litre petrol requires services twice as often; after 12 months or 10,000 miles. Jaguar offers fixed-price servicing plans that last for five years or up to 50,000 miles (whichever comes first). or There’s also a five year, high mileage servicing option that covers 75,000 miles, costing £500 and £650 for the 2.0-litre diesel.
