Jaguar XJ Diesel still Britain’s Greenest Luxury car

“For a proper luxury car to achieve 1000.2 miles (1609kms) on a single tank of diesel is simply remarkable. It’s enough to make you want to buy one”

The 2.7-litre diesel engine in the Jaguar XJ series is a robust powerplant which can move the car along rapidly if need be, but at the same time, is capable of achieving a mind-blowing 53.5mpg (4.4-L/100kms).

Moreover, the big Jag’s CO2 emission count of 139g/km is so low for a car of these dimensions I had to re-examine the calculations. Again this level of carbon pollution is more like what you would expect of a small econobox, than a lavishly appointed flagship model in the large car category.

Incidentally, the diesel engine is a twin turbo unit and the entire car is made from aluminium, but still weighs in at 1659kg. And it’s not slow either. How’s 0-100km/h in 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 225km/h.
