JAGUAR XFS 3.0D AND JAGUAR XJL 3.0D NOW IN MALAYSIA
SISMA Auto, the sole importer and distributor of Jaguar in Malaysia, has introduced two new diesel saloons – the sporty Jaguar XFS 3.0D and the elegant Jaguar XJL 3.0 D. Jaguar’s new premium diesels deliver the refinement expected from Jaguar coupled with breathtaking performance. Fuel economies and emissions are also hard to beat with the 3.0L V6 diesel engine offering Jaguar owners considerable savings on fuel costs and a reduced impact on the environment.
With its new premium diesels, Jaguar makes no compromise in delivering top-notch performance. The 3.0L V6 diesel engine accelerates from 0-100km/h in just 6.4 seconds, 23 per cent quicker than the 3.0L V6 Petrol. Surprising to most, it is even quicker than the previous petrol 4.2L V8. The diesel also delivers a staggering 600Nm of torque, 105% more torque than the XF 3.0L V6 petrol.
Fuel consumption has been reduced by 35 per cent for the XFS 3.0D, consuming 6.8ltr/100km compared to the XF 3.0L V6 petrol version at 10.5ltr/100km. The fuel consumption for the XJL 3.0D is 7.2ltr/100km. Both deliver a maximum power of 275PS.
As for environmental impact, the XFS 3.0D produces 28 per cent less CO2 than the 3.0L petrol version, which equates to only 179g/km of CO2. The CO2 emission of the XJL 3.0D is 189g/km, the difference a result of the different fuel map for the XJ.
Tuan Syed Hussain Syed Mohamed, Managing Director of SISMA Auto said “Some potential buyers have raised concerns about the quality of diesel in Malaysia and the long-term effect on the engine. But they can put their worries aside as Jaguar’s multi-award winning twin-turbo charged 3.0L V6 diesel engine has been redesigned to accept Malaysia’s diesel specification of EURO2M.”
Tuan Syed also said that Jaguar’s obsessive attention to detail has also resulted in an extremely attractive cost of ownership for both variants. “Our premium diesels are now more affordable which opens the market to a much larger segment of customers,” he said.
The Jaguar XFS 3.0D retails at RM 499,888 and the Jaguar XJL 3.0D retails at RM 699,888.
