Confused about what im driving...

Post by antibabes » Fri Dec 04, 2020 10:34 pm

So my car was listed when i bought it as Jaguar XE 2.0 litre diesel prestige (s/s)
Both the listing and parkers guide say this model is 160 bhp.
When i google things about this model (eg adblue tank capacity) im only finding info about a 163 bhp and 180 bhp.
So im wondering is it actually 163 bhp that im driving?

The confusion is because power can be rated in many ways. It has 163ps which works out to 160bhp. The same way the 300 engine is actually 295bhp.

When looking at the back of the car can you see the exhaust pipes ? If not it is a 163. If it has 2 visible beyond the rear valance it is a 180.

Ps is the metric equivalent of hp.
Added to confuse us all by the regulations in La la land.
Your V5 will confirm your engine output and on these forums we tend to use HP even if it is slightly lower than actual HP.

For reference: 1 PS = 0.98632 HP.
or 1 HP = 1.013869 PS.

Don't forget it is brake horsepower (BHP) that is commonly quoted alongside PS.
