Jaguar India announced the launch of an XF petrol variant today. The Jaguar XF, which was only available with the 5.0 liter petrol engine in the XFR, will now be available with a 2.0 liter petrol engine too. The XF is also available with 2.2 and 3.0 liter diesel engine variants, which are also assembled locally at the Chikali plant, near Pune. The XFR is brought in via the CBU route, considering its low volume sales.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar Land Rover India, said, “The Jaguar XF 2.0L petrol engine is a definite head turner and an excellent sedan that combines elegant design, luxurious style and classy appeal. Jaguar XF has been our most popular premium sedan model in India and is well received and appreciated by our customers.” Standard features on the XF 2.0 liter include a rear view camera, TV tuner, full-size spare wheel, sun roof and navigation system. Available in one trim level ‘XF Luxury’ , the 2.0 liter XF is priced at INR 48.30 lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai pre-octroi) and will be the fourth trim to be assembled in India. This 2.0-liter petrol is a Ford Ecoboost engine, which produces a max power of 240 PS @ 5,500 rpm and 340 Nm of peak torque @ 1,750 rpm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed transmission. The ARAI certified fuel efficiency figure of the car stands at 10.8 kmpl and the 0-100 kph dash on this car comes up at 7.9 seconds, with the top-speed electronically limited at 250 kmph. Jaguar Land Rover India currently has 19 outlets spread across 17 cities in India.
