Jaguar offers a distinct alternative to the premium vehicles from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi.
We have taken a look at their most-affordable vehicles in each segment to see what they have to offer – below.
Jaguar XE P250 S – R785,024
The most-affordable Jaguar in South Africa is driven by a 2.0-litre, turbo-petrol motor that produces 184kW and 365Nm.
It will sprint to 100km/h in 6.7 seconds, and will carry five passengers in a full-leather interior.
Its exterior design is stylish, featuring 18-inch alloy wheels and J-shaped daytime running lights.
On the inside you will find a 10-inch infotainment display, two-zone climate control, a 3D surround camera, cruise control, lane keep assist, and a driver attention monitor.
The front seats are 12-way electrically adjustable and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers form part of the standard equipment.
In addition, it’s fitted with all-round LED lights, hill launch assist, all-surface progress control, front-and-rear parking sensors, and emergency braking.
Jaguar E-Pace D200 AWD R-Dynamic S – R874,210
If you would like an SUV from Jaguar, this E-Pace is your cheapest entry to the brand.
The exterior is as sporty as its larger sibling – bringing along 18-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels, LED headlights with daytime running lights, dynamic turn signals, and R-Dynamic badging.
Despite being the entry-level SUV it’s still treated to a full-leather interior, an 11.4-inch infotainment display, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, automatic windscreen wipers and headlights, and lane keep assist.
At the front lies a 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel motor that generates 147kW and 430Nm.
The motor supports a maximum towing capacity of 2,000kg, and 0-100km/h takes 8.4 seconds.
Jaguar XF D200 S – R1,032,622
The XF is Jaguar’s executive option, showcasing the company’s interpretation of the ultimate business sedan.
As such, it’s treated to perforated leather seats with electric adjustability, wood veneers, a top-of-the-line Meridian sound system, approach illumination, two-zone climate control, an 11.4-inch infotainment system, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, and a panoramic sunroof.
Styling also leans more towards luxury than sporty, as it is fitted with elegant LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, Hi-Line tail lights, and clear glass.
Powering the saloon is a 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel motor producing 150kW and 430Nm.
Drive is sent to the rear wheels, and 100km/h can be reached in 7.6 seconds.
Jaguar F-Pace D200 AWD S – R1,128,296
The sporty F-Pace SUV from Jaguar offers an attractive alternative to top-sellers such as the BMW X3.
Admittedly, it does have a higher base price than most of its competitors – but Jaguar does well to justify this with a comprehensive standard features list.
Every F-Pace comes with an 11.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 12-way electrically-adjustable perforated leather front seats, automatic headlights and wipers, adaptive cruise control, blind spot and clear exit monitoring, a 360-degree camera, and 19-inch diamond-turned alloy wheels.
Under the hood, Jaguar has fitted a 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel motor that delivers 150kW and 430Nm.
It lets the F-Pace sprint from 0-100km/h in 8.0 seconds, while allowing a maximum towing capacity of 2,400kg.
Jaguar F-Type P300 R-Dynamic Convertible – R1,299,984
The F-Type is arguably one of the best value-for-money roadsters of 2021, offering a sub six-second 0-100km/h acceleration time for R1.3 million.
The stunning design and features list must be mentioned, too, with this model sporting 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, a full ebony leather interior, 6-way electrically adjustable seats, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a reverse camera, and cruise control with a speed limiter.
Jaguar has fitted a 2.0-litre, inline four-cylinder engine that produces 221kW and 400Nm – which is good for a 0-100km/h time of 5.7 seconds.
