    Why is the 300bhp diesel slower to 60 than the older 275bhp model?

    I'm thinking about changing cars.

    A 2015 (onwards) XF is an option. Potentially in 'S' guise - the 300bhp diesel.

    I noticed the 0-60mph is quoted at 6.4 seconds while the previous model was 5.9.

    Any idea why this is? I thought the new one was more powerful, lighter and used the same gearbox.

    Not unless the 6.4 seconds is 0 to 100kph? and the 5.9 was o to 60mph.?

    I've got a 66 plate 3.0 v6 s-sport which I've had for 12 months now, when I was checking them out, I read it the other way round. I've just been looking at the spec for my jaguar and I'm getting different results from different sites. 0-62 6.4 sec, 0-62 6.2 sec, 0-60 5.8 sec.

    Jaguar XF 3.0 TDV6
    Engine V6, 2993cc, turbodiesel; Power 296bhp at 4000rpm; Torque 516lb ft at 2000rpm; Gearbox 8-spd automatic; Kerb weight 1750kg; 0-60mph 5.8sec; Top speed 155mph; Economy 51.4mpg (combined); CO2/tax band 144g/km, 25%.

    By the looks of it, no one really knows!

    If you like the car you've got but want it faster, have you thought about a remap, it would be cheaper.

    Doesn't matter which 3.0D model you choose standard, S, old or new they all have the same top speed. Does half a second difference between them all have any real relevance? Zero to sixty will put you over the speed limit in 95% of pulling away situations. I would look more at the build quality and addons between the models

    If you want a speed rush buy a 2 wheeler and take it trackside and keep the Jag for smooth cruising
