UK Managing Director Geoff Cousins
said: "We are very excited the new XF is now in the public domain and we are confident
it will be a great success for our dealers in the UK. The new Jaguar XF combines
the emotional appeal of a contemporary, modern Jaguar with all the rational appeal
of a spacious five-seater sports saloon with high levels of standard equipment,
innovative functional features and competitive pricing. The other excellent news
for customers is of course the residual values that experts are quoting for XF."
residual value experts CAP and EurotaxGlass's have both put the XF under the microscope
and both will be quoting residual value after 36 months / 36,000 miles of 50%
of original value* for the 2.7-litre diesel Luxury model. These figures from both
experts mean the XF 2.7-litre diesel Luxury is best-in-class against rivals BMW,
Mercedes, Lexus and Audi. CAP has concluded that the nearest rival, the BMW 525d
SE will retain 45.3% of its original value over the same period.
Ward, Manufacturer Relationship Manager for CAP Motor Research said: "The new
Jaguar XF has not only caught up with its nearest competitors, but has now overtaken
them. Jaguar has proved that a well built, well specified and well priced car
that has fantastic styling can break the mould, and should be a success the world
EurotaxGlass's figure of 50% for the XF 2.7-litre diesel Luxury is
best-in-class ahead of the BMW 525d at 48% and the Audi A6 3.0 V6 TDI Quattro
SE at a rating of 49%. The XF 3.0-litre V6 petrol is expected to retain 45% of
its original value making it best-in-class over the BMW 530i, the Audi A6 3.2
FSI and the Mercedes-Benz E350.
Kevin Gaskell, CEO of EurotaxGlass's has
a similar opinion. He said: "The whole XF package is class-leading. With an array
of impressive standard equipment, competitive pricing and outstanding styling,
we have concluded that it will be a desirable car with best-in-class residual
values of 50%."
Jason King, UK Head of Market Intelligence for EurotaxGlass's
continued: "The second of Jaguar's new generation of products, the XF is bound
to turn as many heads as the XK has since its arrival. The bold, elegant design
is sure to appeal to a much wider audience. Current drivers of BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz
will have to consider the Jaguar when it is time to change - many of whom will
never have experienced the brand before. Our strong residual value positioning
of the XF reflects this, and underlines the resurgence of Jaguar."
a top speed of 143 mph, the XF 2.7-litre diesel can reach 0-60 in 7.7 seconds
and has a combined CO2 of 199 g/km, meaning it falls within UK Tax Band 'F'. At
this level it would not be subject to the proposed high level London congestion
