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 23 - 23 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.

Jaguar XKR-S running costs aren’t cheap, and if you are lucky or show unbelievable restraint you will return the official average fuel consumption of 23mpg. That’s unlikely such is the addictive nature of the sonorous 5-litre V8 that if you manage to get over 20mpg you’ll be doing well. It is expensive to buy, and with group 50 insurance, it’ll be expensive to run.

You can expect decent, yet pricey service at Jaguar dealerships too.

Look away now if you regularly hug trees and handcuff yourself to Parliament buildings. Jaguar XKR-S Convertible CO2 emissions read 292g/km.

Jaguar has done well in consumer satisfaction and reliability surveys and although it's improving there are still question marks over the electronics. Obviously, it’s based on the XK and that has enjoyed a decent reliability record. The interior looks classy and robust, and during our test we didn’t hear any creaks or groans from the running gear or suspension and the interior was free of disconcerting rattles and buzzes too.

There doesn't seem to be much to worry about regarding Jaguar XKR-S Convertible reliability.
