Riza

Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

The XE S is the performance flagship in the XE lineup.

Jaguar China has showcased the sporty XE S sedan at the Chengdu Motor Show 2015 (CDMS 2015). The car has been priced from Chinese Yuan 3,98,000 (INR 41,61,553).

This unit generates 335.2 bhp and 450 Nm of torque with power delivery to the wheels taken care of by the 8-speed automatic transmission. 0-100 kmph comes up in just 4.9 seconds with a top speed limited to 250 kmph.
