Petrol or Diesel Jaguar Engines
Which is the Best Engine Option For You?
Jaguar Cars offer a choice of petrol or diesel engines, but which is the right one for you? Heritage Jaguar in Cheltenham are here to help you decide which option from the range of Jaguar engines available allows you to match your lifestyle, the type of journeys you most regularly undertake and also your budget. The key information below will help you decide but always feel free to contact us here at Heritage Jaguar for further advise or to book a test drive.
WHAT KIND OF DRIVER ARE YOU?
If you use your vehicle for short journeys within a city, such as for the school run or for shopping, then a petrol engine would be a suitable choice. You rarely drive on motorways, and do minimal mileage, mainly in built-up areas.
For high-mileage drivers predominantly taking longer journeys on motorways and rarely travelling within the city, a diesel engine would be a considered option.
TOWN AND COUNTRY
For those living outside the city, but regularly commuting by motorway, a diesel engine would be suitable for consideration. Jaguar’s EU6 Diesels are exempt from the proposed charges in Low Emission Zones.
If you love the thrill and drive mainly for pleasure on country roads, and rarely in urban environments, then either a diesel or petrol would suit you.
EURO 6 DIESEL ENGINES
Our EU6 diesel engines are among the cleanest in the world. Their emission levels are comparable to petrol engines but with CO2 emissions that are 20-25 per cent lower.
All our vehicles, from September 2015 onwards, feature advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e. AdBlue) which helps reduce NOX emissions.
Between 2004 and 2016, our NOX emissions have been reduced by more than 84 per cent. Highly efficient DPFs (Diesel Particulate Filters) in our vehicles capture 99.9 per cent of all particles.
Our EU6 engines are exempt from the proposed Ultra Low Emission Zone daily charge (ULEZ), proposed by Transport for London in the UK.
