Jaguar India had showcased a number of its upcoming products at the 2016 Auto Expo held in February. Models such as the F-Pace, the 2017 XF and the all new XE graced the company’s pavilion at the biennial event. The showcase also marked the debut of the F-Pace SUV in India. Now, if reports are to be believed, the F-Pace has reached Indian dealerships ahead of its launch that is likely to take place during the festive season.
Spy images that surfaced on the web reveal the first ever SUV from the Indian owned British marquee in a shade of black parked at what seems to be a dealer’s yard. According to the company’s Indian website, the model will be available in four trims – Pure, Prestige, R-Sport and First Edition. While the Pure and Prestige trims will receive the 2.0-litre diesel engine, the R-Sport and First Edition trims will receive the 3.0-litre diesel engine.
The 2.0-litre, four cylinder engine will be capable of producing a power output of 177 hp at 4000 rpm with a peak torque of 430 Nm at 1750-2500 rpm. This engine comes mated to an eight speed automatic transmission that helps it sprint from 0-100 kmph in 8.7 seconds and all the way up to a top speed of 208 kmph.
