Lovely. Did you match the wheels to the grey accents?
It's certainly different!

How do you find the fuel economy on the 2.0 Litre 300PS engine?
I discovered this screen the other day (took me a while!) and it tells a remarkable story for my 250PS Ingenium engine.

M25, M11 stuff. It's pretty amazing. Of course, if I use the long legs of the car and cruise at ahem somewhat above legal then it drops a little, but I seem to recall the 47mpg was on an extended 50mph trip (endless roadworks). It was frustrating, but there was a bonus at the end of it..

I do recall that the 3.0 V6 S-Type that I so loved the sound of, and which was actually much slower than this XE, returned about 28mpg max! :oops:
Grudgingly, I have to admit that progress is sometimes good...

nice, so my 44mpg on 2.0d 180bhp now, would be somewhat 35mpg in 300bhp petrol...TEMPTING:devilish:

re v6 s type - would think gearbox alone does big difference as well as 4pots vs 6

Thanks! I bought it like this so I have no clue if the rims were custom painted or some option?!
Fuel economy depends, I will just throw some numbers from the Jaguar App.

6 KM, traffic so-so 14.3L/100 km
6 KM, traffic bad + a bit heavy foot 18L..for very short trips this can of course go to 20+
13 KM, traffic good 11L
173KM, wife on eco 8.5L
325KM, bursts of 240KM/h 11.5L

They don't look standard, but no matter, we all like our unique looks here. That's the point!

With the simple conversion of 1 L/100km=282.48 UK mpg, ;) I think this is:
14.3L/100 km = 19.75 UK mpg
18L/100 km = 15.7 UK mpg
11L/100 km = 25.6 UK mpg
11.5L/100 km = 24.5 UK mpg

That does seem thirstier than the lower powered engine. Driving style will matter of course. I'll have a look at what I have in the last couple of days of very short (cold engine) runs. That will be a worst case to compare.

There's really no way to test at over 100mph (160km/h) in the UK, let alone up the limited 250km/h. That would be an instant ban, sadly. We have too many sneaky bloody cameras...:( At least in the South East.

That seems a bit better than Sahara's. But then we have thicker fuel in the UK. Or something :D

My last 3 short (<4 miles) cold starts were far less economical, as you'd expect. 34 mpg. A worst case.

So for shaving 1/2 sec off the 0-60 sprint with the extra 50 Pferde (250vs300PS), it's fair amount of fuel. Not exactly scientific though.
We can all drive much further than any silly EV, so I'm happy! I fairly regularly need to do a 320 mile round trip and I'd be buggered in most of them.

馃槷 You do realise the loud pedal isn't an on-off switch, do you... :ROFLMAO:

Mine is averaging about 31, over 20+ k miles, with a best in the mid-40s (stuck for many miles in 50 mph roadworks)!

I have had it under 20 on short twisty blasts, though!

Exactly the same as mine over nearly 2 years and about 6500 miles. Mainly shortish journeys so that鈥檚 fine. Best I鈥檝e seen on a good run was 38

Hahah yes the thing is when I do bother to go to the office (2/3 times a week at present) that鈥檚 a run I can achieve 35-38mpg on a55-m56 etc. however I have many trips to the nursery (2miles) guides (3miles lovely twisty road) and also the local Tesco when swmbo fancies a snack 馃ぃ

I like my digital input on the throttle who wants smooth analogue 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃槀 I鈥檓 a child of the 80鈥檚 so digital has been my life ;)

actually with reference to the 鈥榣oud pedal鈥 that is one aspect I鈥檓 a bit underwhelmed by it ain鈥檛 throaty / loud and what you do hear whenyou do 鈥榓ccidentally鈥 put your foot down ain鈥檛 real :( my mate has a Porsche Taycan and paid extra for the fake engine noises internally and externally and that sounds much better than my 鈥榬eal鈥 XE 馃槩 but he did pay nearly twice what I have so鈥

Here some numbers

most of it on the autobahn. Since I am in Romania, those numbers will go up, mainly because I have short trips. I also have a Passat cc Diesel and I am doing 15k km per year using two cars, so not much.

Yes, it is. Luckily I also have heated rear seats. Unluckily what I miss from my previous A5 are the memory seats, ACC and active lane assist. ACC was pretty great. Do you know what that helmet symbol is in the photo?
