Used Jaguars: The Best Combination Of Luxury And Affordability
Jaguar represents the epitome of luxury. It also has the distinction of being beautiful to look at and one of the fastest sports cars in history. All that legendary style and performance is wrapped up with British charm. Unfortunately, owning a Jaguar is out of reach for many.
There is a way you may be able to afford a Jaguar, however. All you have to do is research and find the best used Jaguar models. Wilde Jaguar of Sarasota presents some of the top contenders that could fulfill your need for speed and ultimate luxury.
4 Used Jaguar Models to Consider
1. Used Jaguar XFR and XF Sports Sedan
Known as the ultimate sports sedan in the Jaguar lineup, the XFR model is sometimes overshadowed by competitors like the BMW 5, Mercedes E63, and Cadillac CTS-V. However, a used Jaguar XFR makes for a fabulous deal. Bought new in 2011, this baby would set you back as much as $80k. However, you can find used models for around $30,000, which is comparable to a new, fully-loaded Mazda 6.
In terms of performance, the XFR has a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that’s built to thrill at 505-hp and 443-lb.ft. of torque, which gets you from 0 – 60 in 3.8 seconds. You can also find trims with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine (510-hp).
There’s a racecar in this sedan’s soul and it’s dying to get out. Choose your style with the Alfa DNA Pro Drive Mode. This advanced system allows you to adapt to changing road and weather conditions. You will enjoy track-worthy performance no matter where you’re going. Heading to the store for milk will never be the same.
There are plenty of race-inspired design details and driver convenience features like carbon fiber interior trim and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
For an even more incredible deal, look at the Jaguar XF. It’s the standard trim, but the XF can still make a fabulous (and fabulously fun) used car.
The standard 2.0-liter engine provides an exhilarating 240-hp ride. You can also find trims with the available 5.0-liter V8 engine, which boosts performance to a jaw-dropping 385-hp.
2. Used Jaguar F-Type Sports Coupe
The Jaguar F-Type is the brand’s only current sports car. It’s available as a coupe, but if you’re looking for a used Jaguar convertible, this might be your best bet. Both body styles offer exhilarating performance.
The high-end F-Type SVR trim reaches dizzying speeds thanks to the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. That will get you 575-hp and the ability to go from 0 – 60 in 3.5 seconds. The 8-speed automatic transmission is built to send power to all four wheels, meaning that hairpin turns and tight curves are no problem.
You can also find the standard F-Type with a supercharged V6 and turbocharged 4-cylinder engines.
Newer editions of the F-Type feature Touch Pro®, one of the most advanced in-car infotainment systems on the market. Intuitive controls for climate, navigation, music, and phone are within easy reach thanks to a 10-inch color touchscreen. The Smartphone Pack adds connectivity with your smart devices via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and vehicle-optimized apps like Spotify®.
3. Used Jaguar XJ Luxury Sedan
The very definition of luxury, the XJ sedan is brimming with style. It delivers agile handling and a dynamic driving experience you will always appreciate. The larger interior is meant to give everyone more room to appreciate their surroundings.
The XJ sedan is offered with a Standard Wheelbase (SWD) or Long Wheelbase (LWB), which provides additional legroom for the driver and passengers.
You can expect a powerful, responsive, and smart performance from the Jaguar XJ. There are three engine options on newer editions, starting with th standard 3.0-liter supercharged V6 (340-hp). The XJL and XJ50 trims have a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine (470-hp). Meanwhile, the XJR trim has a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, which boosts your ride to 575-hp and accelerates from 0 – 60 in 4.2 seconds.
The Jaguar infotainment system, Touch Pro, is also present on all XJ trims for newer editions.
4. Used Jaguar E-Pace SUV
The Jaguar E-pace compact performance SUV lines up with competitors like the BMW X3, Audi Q5, Mercedes GLC, and Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Even though it is a small crossover, it still features premium style, abilities, and quality. The base model is more affordable than others in the Jaguar lineup (starting at $38,900), so a used one will be even friendlier to your budget.
There may be a more family focus to the E-pace but it still looks, and handles, like a premium sports car. The exterior is sculpted to resemble a coupe while the driver-focused interior features the highest quality materials and a cockpit-inspired driver’s seat.
Premium performance is thanks to the 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, all-aluminum engine that provides 246-hp and 269-lb.ft. of torque for a smooth yet powerful ride. There is also a highly responsive 9-speed automatic transmission that gives you a more efficient ride.
