Jaguar Land Rover has inducted the second generation Jaguar XF for local assembly at their plant in Pune, Maharashtra. It is now on sale in India at INR 47.5 Lakhs (Ex-showroom Delhi), which is around INR 2 Lakhs less expensive than the CBU model.
No other changes have been made to the new XF. It still comes in three grades: Pure, Prestige and Portfolio. All three grades are available with a 2.0-litre Ingenium four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that produces 132 kW at 4,000 rpm and 430 Nm of torque at 1,750-2,500 rpm, while Prestige and Portfolio exclusively get a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 177 kW at 5,500 rpm and 340 Nm of torque at 1,750-4,000 rpm. Both models are equipped with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The top-end XF Portfolio comes with features like adaptive LED headlights featuring ‘J’ blade LED daytime running lights, LED tail lights, 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.
The XF is Jaguar’s third model to enter local assembly, being built alongside the Jaguar XE and XJ. The F-Pace and F-Type continue to be imported via the CBU route.
