Jaguar Land Rover ‘Approved’ has been named as What Car?’s ‘Best Used Car Scheme’ for the second year running. Designed as the most comprehensive suite of ‘peace of mind’ features for its customers, What Car? judges were impressed with Approved’s rigorous 165-point mechanical check, extensive warranty and the wide range of models it’s available on. What Car? judges also highlighted the F-TYPE Coupe and Range Rover Sport for delivering great value, awarding them victories in the Best Used Coupe for less than £35,000 and Best Used Luxury SUV under £60,000 categories.
"We strive to make every part of the car buying process as easy, trouble-free and as transparent as possible for our customers – be it new cars or used cars.These awards from one of the most trusted names in motoring are gratefully received by those in the business that have worked hard to ensure the quality of our used car programme and each and every one of our vehicles. We’re confident in the abilities of our cars – including F-TYPE and Range Rover Sport – but their recognition from What Car?’s expert judges is a real honour."
All Jaguar or Land Rover Approved vehicles include a two-year unlimited mileage Approved Warranty, which covers models up to five years old with less than 100,000 miles at the time of purchase. There is no limit to the amount of claims that can be made, and each claim is only capped by the purchase price of the car. For absolute on-road confidence, all Approved models also come with two years’ 24/7 UK and Europe Roadside Assistance.
The comprehensive scheme also includes:
Buyers can browse the Approved vehicles available through Jaguar Approved Used or Land Rover Approved Used where they’ll also be able to find both of What Car?’s newly crowned Used Car Awards winners; the Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe and the Range Rover Sport.
What Car? judges voted the F-TYPE as the Best Used Coupe under £35,000. From day one the F-TYPE was engineered to provide outstanding agility and response without compromising the day-to-day usability and ride comfort expected from all Jaguar cars. The stiff, light aluminium bodystructure and all-round aluminium double wishbone suspension are fundamental to delivering on the promise of the F-TYPE’s ultimate sports car styling.
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport, meanwhile, was awarded Best Used Luxury SUV for under £60,000 by What Car?. The class-leading, genuine Land Rover all-terrain capability, breakthrough lightweight suspension design and innovative dynamic chassis technologies all set the Range Rover Sport apart from its luxury SUV competitors.
"Despite strong challenges from some excellent used car schemes, Jaguar Land Rover's Approved scheme takes our Used Car Scheme of the Year award for the second year running. And no wonder; it still offers the same blend of qualities that endeared it to our judges last year: a long used car warranty; a comprehensive breakdown package including European cover; a sensible age and mileage eligibility limit, so that older, more accessible cars can be included; and a wide-ranging inspection process. In short, we reckon it's the scheme that offers the best peace-of-mind when going into a dealer to buy a used car."
Jaguar Land Rover’s Approved schemes offer the same customer-focused approach as its new car sales, they are designed to complement one another and are jointly operated from its extensively renovated network of more than 200 retailers nationwide. Jaguar Land Rover’s new car range is more diverse and cutting edge than ever, too, thanks to recent introductions like the revolutionary all-electric Jaguar I-PACE and plug-in hybrid Range Rover and Range Rover Sport P400e.
