Test drive of the new diesel Jaguar XE

February 22, 2015 at 18:19

We know about the glamorous gasoline XE3.0 S. However, all models, which will be released in the UK, will be diesel. Why so?
Firstly, because it will allow the model to compete with the BMW 320d and Mercedes C220 as for CO2, and on taxes. XE with its 163 horsepower and manual transmission emits just 99g air / km CO2 when accelerating from 0 to 62 m / h in 8.4 with decent. In the version with 180 hp and eight-speed automatic gearbox these figures are 109 g / km and 7.8, respectively. Both versions comply with Euro 6.
Ten years ago, diesel Jaguar X-Type came with an engine capacity of 130 hp and accelerated to 62 m / h in ten seconds. Thus, such a machine emits 149 g / km CO2. So yes, indeed, technology is not standing still.
As for the four-cylinder diesel engine, is pretty good. I noticed some extraneous sounds when you turn the ignition switch to frost, but they soon pass.
