Jaguar is all prepared to make the Indian roads sizzle with luxury. As per a close source, the upgraded Jaguar XF was spotted at the JLR Mumbai showroom during the Evoque launch yesterday. It is likely to be launched in December. Recently, Jaguar is offering a discount of upto Rs 5 lakhs on the Jaguar XF to clear the remaining stock of the old shape, so that the facelift XF could be bought in.
The Jaguar XF facelift gets a new front grille and headlamps which is similar to that of the XJ L. The other major changes on the XF include the gorgeous alloy wheels and the new XK-like dials. The engine options on the XF remains unchanged as it is offered with the same naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine and the XF S still has the 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel engine.
Jaguar is also pondering over the plan to bring in the 4 cylinder 2.2 litre diesel engine that will be more fuel efficient and more economical for the Indian buyers. This engine would tap in 188 BHP of power and will give a better performance than the 3 litre V6 diesel engine variant. We aren’t very sure if the new XF will get the start-stop button, but this will definitely help increase their volume sales.
The restyled XF 3.0-litre diesel is priced at Rs 64.22 lakh (on-road Mumbai), making it dearer by Rs 1.5 lakh and the 5.0-litre petrol will retail at Rs 81.88 lakh, making it Rs 3 lakh more expensive. With the face-lifted XF, Jaguar has the potential to really take the fight to the German trio of BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi.
