Jaguar XF wins two awards at the annual SME Company Car of the Year Awards

  • The Jaguar XF has been named Company Car of the Year and Large Company Car of the Year at the annual SME Company Car of the Year Awards.
  • A panel of independent judges praised the XF 2.0D 163ps R-Sport Auto for its low running costs, handling and technology.
  • The XF now boasts 11 major UK awards, having already been named Top Gear’s Saloon Car of the Year and Auto Trader New Car of the Year.

The Jaguar XF has picked up two major UK awards, having been named both Company Car of the Year and Large Company Car of the Year at the annual SME Company Car of the Year Awards. It’s the second winning year for the XF, which was named Director Company Car of the Year at the 2017 event.

A panel of independent judges picked out the XF 2.0D 163ps R-Sport Auto model for particular praise. Its four-cylinder diesel Ingenium engine delivers fuel economy of 69.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 109g/km, falling to just 104g/km when fitted with a manual gearbox.

But the XF’s technology isn’t just limited to its engine range, with a whole host of hi-tech offerings to boost safety and connectivity on the road. Forward Vehicle Guidance and Blind Spot Assist take the stress out of driving, while Dual View InControl infotainment system allows you and your passengers to view different information on the same screen, at the same time.

The SME Company Car Award is the latest in a long line of accolades for the all-new Jaguar XF, which has already had been recognised by Business Car as Executive Car of the Year, by Top Gear Magazine as its Saloon Car of the Year and by Fleet World as its Executive Car of the Year.

Jeremy Hicks, MD, Jaguar Land Rover, UK, said, “The XF is positioned in one of the most competitive segments of the marketplace; not only does it have to be stylish, luxurious and packed full of technology, but it really has to add up financially, too. This SME Company Car of the Year Award is just the latest validation of what we’ve known about the XF from the beginning; it is quite simply the best all-round package in the executive class.”

The Jaguar XF was designed from the ground up to appeal to fleet and business customers, and boasts total cost-of-ownership figures that are among the best in their class.

The XF is available to order now at Jaguar UK retailers, priced from £32,490 on-the-road.
