Jaguar XF 2.0d – Best diesels

A big British bruiser, the Jaguar XF rivals the BMW 5-Series and in our opinion, beats it

It’s the second showing for Jaguar’s ‘Ingenium’ 2.0-litre diesel in our top 10 – and it’s every bit as good in the larger XF as it is in the XE. As in that car, it’s smooth and refined, but with a choice of 161bhp or 178bhp, it’s plenty powerful enough for most motorists. The most powerful version – with an automatic gearbox – will achieve 65.7mpg and emits just 114g/km of CO2. With such low emissions, Continue reading “Jaguar XF 2.0d – Best diesels”

The fastest accelerating cars in the world 2019

0-60mph (and 0-62mph) times have been dropping like stones. Here are today's fastest accelerating cars, as claimed by the manufacturers

What are the fastest accelerating cars in the world? In theory, a quick glance at a vehicle’s ‘nought to sixty’ time should give you a fair idea of where it stands in the pecking order, but the reality is that true performance is much harder to gauge.

Part of the problem is the manufacturers’ vagueness when it comes to providing accurate Continue reading “The fastest accelerating cars in the world 2019”
