Jaguar XE set to offer industry best residual values and cost of ownership
Not only will Jaguar’s highly-anticipated XE model offer drivers both a unique road-going experience and great looks when it drops next year – it will also offer the lowest cost of ownership of any of its premium rivals.
Top industry valuation companies CAP, Kee Resources and CDL all agree that the Jaguar XE will offer stronger residual values than equivalent BMW 3 Series models.
The latest figures show that the majority of the main valuation companies predict the XE will have stronger residual values than every one of its premium rivals.
CAP Automotive Limited are industry leading suppliers of used car valuation data and other essential services for the UK motor trade – they predict that the XE will retain 45 per cent of its value.
This figure would put the Jaguar XE ahead of rival models from BMW and Audi – Kee Resources and CDL also rate the XE as best in class, ahead of BMW, Audi and Mercedes.
Jaguar’s flagship compact executive model comes with the state of the art Ingenium engine range – the 2.0-litre diesel powertrain produces a mere 99g/km of Co2 emissions meaning it has a lower Vehicle Excise Duty and Benefit In Kind rate than the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class, Audi A4 and Audi A5.
Alongside affordable servicing, maintenance and repair costs – this means the XE will save customers thousands of pounds in ownership costs compared to other cars in the compact executive range.
Kee Resources put the total cost of ownership saving over 3 years versus the nearest rival at £2,215 before further benefit in kind savings are factored in.
Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director, said, ““People expect Jaguars to feel luxurious, look superb and drive brilliantly, but many wouldn’t necessarily expect a Jaguar to be affordable – but we’ve worked hard to ensure the XE is just that. An enormous amount of effort has gone into developing everything from the new efficient Ingenium engines to the superb value-for-money service plans.
Adding, “The fact that valuation companies rank XE as having some of the strongest residual values in class is the icing on the cake. This is a car that appeals to the head just as much as the heart.”
