New Jaguar XF Launched In India: Price starts from 49.50 Lakh

2016 Jaguar XF, the new updated version of the British carmker's popular luxury sedan has finally gone on sale in India. Launched at a starting price of Rs. 49.50 Lakh, the top-of-the-line variant is priced at Rs. 62.10 lakh (all ex-showroom, Delhi).

The company has announced that the deliveries for the newJaguar XF will commence from the end of September 2016 and customers can now book the car right now for a token amount of Rs. 5 lakh. Interestingly, the 2016 Jaguar XF now also comes with JLR's all-new Ingenium Diesel engine, which makes the car the first Jaguar model in India to get one.

The new Jaguar XF will be available in India in a total of three variants - Pure, Prestige, and Portfolio, in both petrol and diesel guises. The petrol trim continues to use the same 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline motor that churns out 237bhp and develops a peak torque of 340Nm.

On the other hand, the all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine, from the Ingenium family, makes 177bhp and develops a peak torque of 430Nm. Both the engines come mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

Jaguar XF's new lightweight aluminium architecture contributes towards a weight saving of up to 190 kg over the previous generation XF. As far as dimensions are concerned, the new-gen XF is 7mm shorter and 3mm lower than its predecessor but the wheelbase has increased by 51mm, thanks to the new platform.

There is also an increase in the legroom and the knee room by 15mm and 24mm respectively. The headroom too goes up by 27mm at the rear. Thanks to the redesign and a lower height, the drag coefficient to goes down from 0.29 to 0.26. The weight distribution too is 50:50, which Jaguar says, has the ideal balance between ride and handling.
