“Considering the high level of specification on all models, these cars stack up extremely well against their prestige and luxury class rivals.”

The XF range will start with the new price leading 2.2 litre turbo diesel at $90,000. This motor provides 450 Nm of torque for effortless cruising and over taking, while being the most economical and environmentally friendly Jaguar yet.

There will also be two 3.0 litre diesel models and three petrol engine cars, a 3.0 litre V6, the 5.0 litre V8 and the range topping Supercharged XFR V8.

Standard and long wheel base versions of the XJ luxury saloon will be available from $155,000 and include a 3.0 litre diesel model, a naturally aspirated 5.0 litre V8 starting from $180,000 and two supercharged V8’s from $240,000.
