Jaguar India has silently launched the XF sedan. Interestingly, Jaguar has also reintroduced the XF with a diesel powertrain. The petrol variant of the Jaguar XF is priced at Rs 71.60 lakh (ex-showroom), whereas the diesel variant is slightly expensive at Rs 76 lakh (ex-showroom). The carmaker has discontinued the Prestige variant of the sedan, and the 2021 Jaguar will now be sold in the R-Dynamic variant only.
Coming to the changes, the styling, of course, is new. The grille up front is larger than before, and the headlamps are sleeker and sharper than its predecessor. The bumpers on both ends have been reprofiled as a part of the facelift. The alloy wheels sport a new design, but not much has changed on the sides.
The cabin is a nice place to be in. The infotainment system in the cabin is an 11.4-inch infotainment unit, featuring JLR’s Pivi Pro. The steering wheel sports a new design, similar to the one we have seen on the Jaguar F-Pace.
The engine choices included a 2.0-litre petrol unit and a diesel motor. Both the powertrains are coupled with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which drives the rear wheels. Out of the two engines, it is the diesel unit that features a mild-hybrid system. The petrol motor is tuned to churn out 246.5bhp, whereas the diesel mill is good for 200bhp.
Jaguar has limited the top speed of the diesel variant of the 2021 XF to 235kmph, while the petrol variant can go up to 250kmph.
The 2021 Jaguar XF mainly rivals the Audi A6, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Volvo S90, and BMW 5 Series.
