Jaguar XF gets business edition model

  • Two new special editions for luxury saloon model
  • SE Business and Sport models get 2.2-litre diesel engines
  • Jaguar XF SE Business costs £236 per month on 40% tax

Two new models have been added to the Jaguar XF range, the SE Business and Sport.

While the SE Business model may sound like it’s a dedicated company car model, you will want to check the costs to see if it’s worthwhile over the standard SE car.

The SE Business model is fitted with the new 2.2-litre diesel engine, which produces 161bhp. The latest addition means a little bit of extra kit for the XF including a sat nav with seven-inch touchscreen. This comes on top of the standard equipment of stop/start DAB radio, part-leather seats and bi-xenon headlights.

This new edition will cost you a little extra in company car tax too. With a P11d value of £30,800 it is £1,550 more than the standard SE model. Both models fall in to the 23% Benefit-in-Kind band for 2012/13 tax year. The standard SE model will cost 40% tax payers £224, while the SE Business version increases to £236. So that’s an extra £12 per month for sat-nav, cheaper and easier to buy your own.

The Sport model comes with the higher powered 188bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine. With this model, buyers get an aerodynamic pack, which includes a revised front bumber, black grille element, side sill extensions and rear spoiler.

Inside the car the Sport trim gets half leather seats, electric driver and passenger seat adjustment, piano black trim with ‘Sport’ decals on the centre console and stainless steel foot pedals. Practical additions include heated front windscreen and front seats, front parking sensors and reversing camera and 60/40 folding rear seats.

The Jaguar XF SE Business and Sports models are available to order now with P11d prices starting at £30,800 and £35,250.
