Top 50: Cars in tax band A
Want to reduce the cost of your motoring? One way is to choose a car that’s in band A for Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) which means it emits less than 100g/km of CO2, and you’ll pay precisely nothing in annual car tax.
However, the current VED rules will change on 1 April 2017, with a new tax system that will introduce a flat standard rate of £140 effectively for any car that’s not a pure-electric vehicle. You can read about the changes in more detail here.

The XE has been one of the most talked about cars in recent years, and is the model tasked with taking on class leaders from the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi. Fortunately, the basic recipe looks promising with an aluminium-intensive construction and a new range of four-cylinder ‘Ingenium’ engines that includes the one we’re interested in here, a 2.0-litre diesel boasting 163PS and a stout 380Nm of torque.
Jaguar claim this variant will achieve 75mpg, no doubt helped by super-slippery aerodynamics with a 0.26 Cd, and the XE is also packed with technology including a colour head-up display and a new traction control system dubbed ‘All Surface Progress Control.’
