Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 46 - 57 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

From launch the most economical Jaguar XF Sportbrake will be the 2.2-litre Diesel engine returning 54.3mpg on average in either power output, although in real world terms you should return around 40mpg. On standard 17-inch wheels this version will emit 135g/km CO2 putting it into road tax band E and for company cars sits in the 18% BIK band for the tax year 2012/13.

Jaguar tends to be a bit pricey when it comes to servicing and parts. Jaguar XF Sportbrake running costs are affordable and its resale values will be on a par with rivals including the BMW 5 Series Touring and the Audi A6 Avant.

Jaguar XF Sportbrake emissions are quite high, even for the cleanest engine: the 2.2-litre diesel comes out at 135g/km of CO2 even with intelligent start/stop technology.

In the four years of XF – this car has already picked up two gongs for topping reliability surveys. This bodes well for Jaguar XF Sportbrake reliability.
