There should be some of us that can help answer that question by the end of this week as several have arrived at port early last week.

I had a ride in a diesel about 4 - 6 weeks ago. It was quiet, plenty of torque and I thought had a good ride. If I were to make the choice again I would pick the diesel for its efficiency assuming that I could get all the options I wanted. If speed is your thing then get the gas version.

Would you choose the 20d or the 30d ? And why ?

I drove the diesel XF - I know, different vehicle, but same engine - and thought it was very smooth, very quiet and very powerful off the line.

As @JagPA noted, there are several us (including me) eagerly anticipating "the phone call" from our respective dealer(s) this week!

The 3.0 is not available in the US. So the only option is the 20d. If it were available I would've probably chosen the 3.0.

Didn't know there were two choices. If that were the case I'd pick the 30d as it would have more torque thru the curve and just a better overall response. My son's X-5 has a 30 or 35 diesel and I like the pick up and fuel economy.

Haven't driven the 3.0d but received my 2.0d auto AWD a month ago. Very happy thus far with my first Jaguar - remarkable grip on the road & sits on corners like a sports car; very comfortable ride; quick, strong; great torque; MPG of about 34 around town (taking it for its first long trip on French motorways later this month & curious to see fuel consumption numbers). Ample power for overtaking (I've seen some iffy reviews on this but I don't agree - I haven't had any issues when flooring the accelerator to overtake, even at speed - the response is great). Really impressed with the 8-speed transmission - extremely smooth, agile & responsive. Loads of built-in tech & connectivity to this car - it's taking a while to get on top of it all.
Few further comments: I'd recommend the extra expense for the InControl Touch Pro - impressive, intuitive system & no sign of any glitches/freezes (thus far) - way way way better one than my previous car's (Disco 3 - JLR's issues with infotainment systems definitely sorted with this one). Very handy & useful feature to transfer the satnav map to the instrument panel, where it appears slightly larger. Only slight criticism - as has been stated elsewhere - is limited, somewhat inadequate rear vision. While this is a small price to pay for the elegant lines & the looks it attracts, I'd definitely recommend the rear camera on any model, and the blind spot warning system (which I regrettably didn't order).

I too test drove the diesel last week, our Prestige diesel is in route and I agree with all the other observations. Torque is excellent and only possible criticism is the forecasted MPG. Hopefully, soon, I'll be able to share "real" numbers.

I d like more miles per tank. Had heard the diesel has a lag when stepping on accelerator.

Thank you! Just the info I wanted. I had decided to NOT get the ictp because not tech savvy at all.

Any comments/first reactions on your diesel test drive?

Not noticeable under normal acceleration. Very typical for a turbo charger vs. a supercharger. That is why some use a combination of turbo and super chargers.

Yes, 3.0D Portfolio - amazing engine and when in Dynamic or Sports Mode is just goes!. I test drove a 2.0D with the dealer for about half an hour. My only niggle is that the front parking sensors do not automatically activate which is ridiculous.

It is the 2.0 we are looking for feedback on. Sadly, we can't get the 3.0 in the U.S.
