British luxury car manufacturer, Jaguar, is all set to launch the new XE facelift in India tomorrow. The new facelift version is expected to get sharper design cues and a bunch of new features, along with new BS-VI compliant engines. The new XE will continue to rival the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series and the Audi A4 in the entry-level premium sedan segment. Expect the prices of the new Jaguar XE to get a slight hike when compared to the outgoing model.
Talking about the car, the new XE is now aiming to become the most exciting sports saloon in the Indian market. The car will now be available with a new range of BS-VI compliant engines that include a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces about 177 HP and 430 Nm of peak torque, and a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine that produces about 197 HP and 320 Nm of peak torque. Both these engine options will likely be available with the same automatic gearbox as the outgoing model, that would send power only to the rear wheels.
In terms of features and design upgrades, the new XE facelift is expected to be much more stylish and premium than its predecessor. All the detailed specifications of the new XE facelift will be revealed tomorrow. So, stay tuned for more updates about the upcoming Jaguar XE.
