Finally, there is an affordable mid-size luxury sedan that brings a smile at the gas pump and nimble on-road performance. Yep, it’s time for the cat metaphors because it’s the new 2013 Jaguar XF. It’s easier to own than ever before with a $6,000 price reduction for the base model.
The Sensible Jaguar
One of the reasons the Jaguar XF has become popular with first-time prestige sedan owners is its sensible new 2.0-liter engine. There is no reason to blow your budget on an over-the-top performance sedan just so you can brag about how fast it hits 60 mph. Smart drivers are choosing a responsive car of distinction like the Jag XF so they can choose the engine that suits their driving needs.
Many drivers are finding that the 2013 XF is surprisingly easy to afford with manageable lease payments or low finance rates. It’s one of the reasons the 2013 XF has become the prestige vehicle of choice for individuals who desire a luxury automobile without the luxury cost.
What Makes the XF Purr
The new XF base model contains a direct injection, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission that delivers 240 hp and 251 lb-ft torque at very low speeds. This translates into a vehicle that will readily respond with the acceleration you need in demanding urban traffic or when passing vehicles on the highway. This engine gives you a combined EPA city/highway fuel economy of 23 mpg, a highly respectable figure for a mid-size sedan.
Do You Need the V6?
For just $3K more, you can upgrade to the XF 3.0 with its supercharged 340 hp V6 engine and 332 lb-ft of torque. This configuration gets only a slightly lower city/highway combined mileage of 21 mpg. Even if you’re into penny pinching, you may find the upgrade to the XF 3.0 worth the extra investment. According to “Car and Driver,” it has a smoother delivery than the base XF, which made them quip: “Check the sofas; you may have another $3,000 for the V-6 in there somewhere.”
The only way to determine if you should go for the XF 3.0 is to test drive both variants. Many drivers may not notice the difference. The same irreverent reviewer at “Car and Driver” celebrated the “tactile steering” and “techno update on old-world opulence” in the base model’s interior.
In either the base XF or XF 3.0, you can switch to manual mode with the paddle shifters and turn your domesticated ride into a ferocious beast. Other standard features include push-button start; Xenon headlamps with LED lights; heated, leather, power-adjusting front seats; parking sensors; sunroof; and an infotainment system that includes a 250-watt 10-speaker audio system.
If the Jaguar XF sounds like your affordable luxury car, why not visit your Jaguar dealer and check out a Lease on a new XF or XF 3.0. Chances are you’ll find that you can finance your new XF with competitive low rates and an affordable monthly payment.
