Jaguar has launched the diesel variant of its XF sports saloon in India. The diesel version follows the 5.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol version of the car and the supercharged version (XFR) launched in 2009. The XF has been highly acclaimed throughout the world for its beautiful lines and the right balance between dynamic ability and driving comfort. The new car is priced at Rs 48.37 lakhs Ex-Delhi.
The new V6 diesel engine powering the XF produces 275 PS of peak power along with a train-like 600Nm of peak torque. This engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and is claimed to be capable of accelerating the car to 100km/h from a standstill in 6.4 seconds.
The Jaguar XF comes with technologies such as the Jaguar Drive Selector, Jaguar Drive Control, Jaguar Sequential Shift and Dynamic Stability Control with Trac DSC mode.
On the inside, the new XF has features such as leather seats, unique soft blue illumination, a seven-inch full colour touch-screen display and Jaguar Smart Key SystemTM with Keyless Entry and Start. The Diesel XF is fitted with 18″ inch alloy wheels with full size spare wheel as standard. Also included as standard features are cruise control, electric glass sunroof, front and rear parking aid with rear view camera and Jaguar Sound System with 6 CD player.
The new Diesel XF introduced in India has been customised by Jaguar engineers in the UK for the Indian market with ride height adapted for Indian conditions and a non-DPF diesel engine.
