How much does the Jaguar XK cost to run?

The 5L petrol is the most economical Jaguar XK to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Jaguar XK 5L petrol costs £570.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band M.

It does just over 25 MPG on average, which means it will cost £23.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the BMW 2 Series 1.5L diesel and the more thirsty Ford Mustang 5.0L petrol.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 49, which is lower than the Ford Mustang 5.0L petrol, but higher than the BMW 6 Series 3.0L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the BMW 2 Series has the lowest insurance group.)

Jaguar XK: How big is the boot?

The Jaguar XK has a below average boot space (325 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the BMW 2 Series MPV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 560 litres.

Is the Jaguar XK easy to park?

This is one of the widest cars in the class, which makes it feel like a bit of a squeeze in the multi-stories. If that stresses you a bit, try the much narrower MINI Coupe.

When it comes to parking on the street, the XK is one of the hardest. It has a turning circle of 11m, and a length of 4793m, giving you a relatively small 7mm gap to turn the car in and out.

If you don’t have a drive, you should look at the best in class for parallel parking instead, the MINI Coupe.

Which Jaguar XK has the best performance?

The fastest Jaguar XK from 0-60, is the 5L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 515 lbs/ft torque and 385 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 5.2 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the BMW 4 Series 3.0L petrol, which will beat your Jaguar XK to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
