NEWS - Jaguar XF range features two new editions

Having recently been named 'Executive Car of the Year' by BusinessCar, Jaguar has introduced two new models into the award-winning range; the SE Business and Sport editions.

In presenting the Award, Paul Barker, Editor of BusinessCar said: 'Jaguar's XF has proved its appeal to the business car market with appeal to both the heart and the head thanks to its stylish looks and good running costs. Jaguar has worked hard to improve the car's attractiveness to corporate drivers with the excellent new 2.2-litre engine, and is making further improvements that will only enhance the XF's chances of retaining this award - decided by the readers of BusinessCar - in 2013.'

Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover UK, commented: 'These are the only awards voted for entirely by the business car industry – it's a fitting demonstration of the popularity of the XF, its desirability and engineering integrity that the readers of BusinessCar should vote for it to once again win its category. Through our relentless programme of design, technical and value enhancements, typified by the SE Business and Sport models announced today, we aim to continue this success.'

Paired with the recently-discussed 2.2-litre Diesel 163PS output engine, the SE Business model comes equipped with a 7-inch touch-screen sat-nav system. This is in addition to the standard specification which includes intelligent start stop, a 400W sound system with DAB digital radio, leather and suedecloth seats and bi-Xenon headlights.

The Sport model is based on the 190PS version of the 2.2-litre diesel engine and adds a full aerodynamic pack which was first seen on the Diesel S. This includes a revised front bumper, a black grille element, side sill extensions, a subtle rear boot lid spoiler and a black rear valance. All this comes together to create a subtly imposing look to hint at the sporty nature.

Inside, the Sport also features leather and suedecloth seats. Piano black trim with 'Sport' decals on the centre console are joined by stainless steel foot pedals. Other additions include a heated front windscreen and front seats, a front parking aid plus a reversing camera and 60/40 folding rear seats.

Both the SE Business and Sport can be ordered now with prices starting at £31,500 (OTR) and £34,950 (OTR) respectively. Pop in to your local dealer or order a local brochure online.
