SE and Sport Models Join XF Line-Up
The SE Business has the new 160 bhp 2.2 litre diesel engine launched last week, and a new seven inch touch screen satellite navigation system and HDD mapping, in addition to start-stop, a 400W stereo, all leather interior and bi-Xenon headlights.
Prices for the SE Business start at £31,500.
The Sport model has a similar 2.2 Diesel engine with 190 bhp rather than 160, and also has a revised front bumper, black grille, side sill extensions and small rear, cosmetic changes usually reserved for the Diesel S.
The seats are half leather, half suede, with contrasting stitching and a piano black interior with drilled stainless steel pedals. Included too is a reversing rear camera and radar guided cruise control.
Jaguar XF Sports are priced at £34,950.
Paul Barker, Editor of BusinessCar who recently awarded the XF with the title of ‘Business Car of the Year’ 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.”
Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover UK, added: “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.”
