Jaguar X-Type Diesels Euro-4 Compliant a Year Early
26 January 2005
All Jaguar X-TYPE Diesel sedans and wagons are now Euro 4 emissions compliant—a year ahead of the date demanded by European legislation.
The new Euro 4 compliant X-TYPE 2.0 Diesel costs a bit extra (£500 in the UK, for example), but can offer a potential cut in the annual tax bill, depending upon the country. In the UK, the Euro 4-compliant Jag will allow users an approximate 3% reduction.
Jaguar maintained the basic parameters of the engine: peak power of 128 hp (95.6 kW) and torque of 330 Nm (243 lb-ft). To achieve the emissions reductions and improve the feel of the car, the company introduced a new engine management system, and modified the turbocharger with an electronic vane control device. The changes allow the engine and vehicle react faster and more efficiently to driver demand for more throttle, and better manage the combustion. Ford achieved Euro 4 emissions levels without using a particulate filter.
Fuel consumption and CO2 figures have increased slightly as a direct result of achieving the improved emissions status figures.
|Jaguar X-Type Diesel|
|Combined fuel economy (mpg US)||41.9||40.9|
|Fuel consumption (l/100km)||5.62||5.75|
