3.4 out of 5

Running a Jaguar is unlikely to be the cheapest option available but owning a Jaguar XF doesn't have to break the bank if you go for one of the diesel variants. The 161bhp diesel is capable of respectable economy and CO2 emissions, and shouldn't cost you a fortune to insure either.

MPG and CO2

The Jaguar XF is available with three different diesel engines and one petrol. The cheapest version to run is the 2.2-litre diesel with 161bhp. It’s capable of 57.6mpg, with CO2 emissions of 129g/km for road tax of £110 a year. While these figures aren’t too painful, BMW and Audi offer alternatives that are more economical than the Jag, including the 520d and A6 Ultra respectively. The Mercedes E300 BlueTEC Hybrid is even more efficient than those models, but its advanced technology makes it more expensive to buy.

The 3.0-litre diesel engines offer better performance, but economy falls to 47.1mpg and CO2 emissions rise to 159g/km. We think the 197bhp 2.2-litre engine offers the best compromise between an affordable purchase price and decent performance. It’ll return 54.3mpg and has CO2 emissions of 139g/km for an annual tax bill of £130.

Jaguar recently dropped the only petrol engine from the standard XF line-up. It wasn't cheap to run thanks to its 335bhp power output but now the only petrol XF options are the hugely powerful XFR and XFR-S models, which are sensationally quick but have made many a man weep with pain at the fuel pumps.

Insurance groups

The least powerful XF in the range has a group 33 rating and the other models rise through the groups as they get more powerful. The most powerful model sits in group 45.

Servicing

A major service for an XF diesel costs £329.

Warranty

You get a three-year warranty when you buy a Jaguar XF, which covers the car unlimited mileage during that time. This is exactly the same as the cover you get on a BMW 5 Series.
