Which Jaguar XJ-S model will do the best MPG?

Which Jaguar XJ-S model has the best fuel economy?

Asked on 30 July 2018 by Robert Felton

Answered by Keith Moody
If you're concerned about mpg, a Jaguar XJ-S may not be the right car for you. To answer your question, the later 4.0-litre 5-speed manual returns about 26mpg and is the most economical on paper. But if you're buying this car for high days and holidays then you won't be putting fuel in it that often. Most classics cover about 3000 miles a year.

Grace, pace and space. It's getting better as the years go by. Lots of versions to choose from - six-cylinder cars are brilliant.
