Jaguar launches the new XF in India with a choice of two engine options. Prices range between Rs. 49.50 lakh to Rs. 62.10 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Jaguar has launched the next generation avatar of its XF executive luxury saloon in India with prices starting at Rs. 49.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Bookings for the car are open across all Jaguar Land Rover dealerships across the country while deliveries of the car will start from the end of September.
The all-new Jaguar XF is built on Jaguar’s latest Lightweight Aluminum Architecture designed to make the car almost 190kg lighter, stronger and 28 per cent stiffer than its predecessor. While the new car retains the same basic silhouette as the outgoing model it gets sharper lines and sportier design cues. Exterior highlights include the new LED head lamps with J-Blade daytime running lights and LED tail lamps as well.
“Over the years, Jaguar XF has gained immense popularity and success in the Indian market and we are excited to offer the all-new Jaguar XF to our discerning and distinguished customers passionate about owning a Jaguar,” said, Rohit Suri, President, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL).
The wheelbase of the car is 51mm longer but front overhang has been reduced by 66mm to make for better handling. The increased wheelbase also allows for 15mm more leg room at the rear and 24mm more knee room along with 27mm more head room. All this has been done while also reducing drag coefficient by 0.29 to 0.26. Another highlight for the interiors is mood lighting with 10 colours to choose from. The car also gets a choice of Jaguar’s new In-Control infotainment systems mated to Meridian’s 11 speaker 380W or 17 speaker 825W sound systems depending on the variant.
Engine options for the new Jaguar XF include the company’s new range of 2.0 litre, four cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine in the new Jaguar XF develops a maximum of 237BHP while the diesel unit churns out a max power output of 177BHP. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
"From an engineering perspective, our targets with the all-new XF were bound by one holistic goal - it had to do everything better, and it does. It offers even better dynamics, even greater refinement for the comfort of its occupants, it delivers an all-new infotainment system, and it utilizes every last mm of packaging to maximize interior space, while exploiting all the weight-saving optimization offered by our new aluminum-intensive architecture. As a driver you will notice these benefits from the moment you sit behind the wheel." Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar XF.
