New Jaguar XF SE Business and Sport models added to range
THIS is excellent news for business users: a new Jaguar XF SE Business model that underpins the hugely desirable XF saloon range.
And for those that want a bit of extra whizz-bang to their Jaguar motoring, there’s also a Jaguar XF Sport model that’s new to the range.
Both models are based on the Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel model, with the XF SE Business model starting at £31,500 (OTR) and the XF Sport at £34,950 (OTR).
“Through our relentless programme of design, technical and value enhancements, typified by the SE Business and Sport models we’ve just announced, we aim to continue the success of the Jaguar XF with SME businesses,” commented Jeremy Hicks, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover.
So what can you expect from the XF SE Business model which is powered by a 163PS 2.2-litre diesel engine?
The new SE Business specification adds exactly what a business driver needs to get around successfully: satellite navigation complete with a seven inch touchscreen and HDD mapping along with the standard specification which includes Bluetooth, eight-speed auto, fuel-saving start stop, a 400W sound system with DAB digital radio, leather and suedecloth seats and bi-Xenon headlights.
