The Jaguar XE will offer stronger residuals than the equivalent 3 Series model, according to CAP, KeeResources and CDL data.
The latest figures show that the majority of leading valuation companies predict the XE will have stronger residual values than all of its premium rivals.
It comes as JLR unveils a new global fleet strategy, aiming to boost fleet sales to 25% of its total volume.
Over three years or 30,000 miles, CAP predicts that the XE will retain 45% per cent of its value, placing it ahead of rival models from BMW and Audi. Against the same competitor set, KeeResources and CDL rate XE as best in class ahead of Audi, BMW and Mercedes.
Jaguar says due to 99g/km emissions produced by the XE’s 2.0-litre 163PS Ingenium diesel engine, the XE also has lower Vehicle Excise Duty and Benefit In Kind rate than the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class, Audi A4 and Audi A5 as well as better fuel economy.
According to KeeResources total cost of ownership saving over 3 years 36,000 miles vs. nearest rival is £2,215 before further benefit in kind savings.
Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director Jeremy Hicks said: “People expect Jaguars to feel luxurious, look superb and drive brilliantly, but many wouldn’t necessarily expect a Jaguar to be affordable – but we’ve worked hard to ensure the XE is just that. An enormous amount of effort has gone into developing everything from the new efficient Ingenium engines to the superb value-for-money service plans.
“The fact that valuation companies rank XE as having some of the strongest residual values in class is the icing on the cake. This is a car that appeals to the head just as much as the heart.”
