Jaguar Land Rover India has launched the second generation Jaguar XF today. It is available in three grades: Pure, Prestige and Portfolio, and priced between INR 49.5 Lakhs – INR 62.10 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
The new XF debuts Jaguar’s new 2.0L Ingenium diesel engine in India, which produces 177 hp and 430 Nm of torque. It is paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in 8.1 seconds. Exclusive to the Prestige and Portfolio grades is the option of a 2.0L petrol engine producing 237 hp and 340 Nm of torque, also paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The petrol and diesel variants are capable of achieving an ARAI-certified average fuel mileage of 13.12 km/L and 19.33 km/L respectively. Both variants are equipped with ‘Jaguar Drive Control’, which offer a selection of four driving modes – Standard, Eco, Dynamic or Rain/Ice/Snow.
The wheelbase is 51 mm longer than the outgoing model, translating to increased knee room and legroom. It is based on the aluminium-intensive iQ platform, and 190 kg lighter than the previous generation model whilst being 30 percent stiffer.
The top-end Portfolio grade comes equipped with adaptive LED headlights featuring ‘J’ blade LED daytime running lights, Jaguar F-Type-inspired LED taillights, 12.3-inch HD Virtual Instrument Display, InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with a 10.2-inch touchscreen display and 17-speaker 825 kW Meridian Surround Sound System.
