Whereas in particular the German Premiumkonkurrenz has so far not only powerful six-cylinder diesel engine, but also small Einsteigerversionen for fleet customers in the program, there was only a down layered three litre version at the Jaguar XF with 211 HP.

The four cylinders diesel with 2.2 liter and easier turbocharging works in models such as the Land Rover Freelander, Peugeot 508 or Ford Mondeo. He säuselt despite four combustion chambers quietly to himself, and offers a regular passage with 450 nm torque. 140 KW / 190 HP are sufficient to be powerful on the road on highways and motorways. The Briton creates 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds, and also a top speed of 225 km/h will make one forget any deprivation.

The Briton at a traffic light or a jam, rolls the engine assumes that gently. Somewhat zögerlicher, he jumps in again when the gas pedal. The six also get the new eight-speed automatic transmission with start stop function from 2012. Then the standard consumption of the three litre diesel from 6.8 to 6.3 litres is reduced. And a six-cylinder has just a very different charm as a motor with four combustion chambers for many. It has long been no longer a secret, that the Jaguar XF in the medium term as all cycling and wagon version called estate is to come. “Our combined class looks”, Andy Wyman confirmed, “but it takes something, until he comes.” “We need the XF estate urgently, in order to compete against the 5 Series Touring and A6 avant in the European market.”
