Locally built Jaguar XF now starts at a tempting 44.5 lacs


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Germans Beware! India’s first locally built pouncing cat has finally arrived!

Indian built Jaguar XF

Jaguar Land Rover has notified IAB that they are commencing production of the Jaguar XF saloon at their facility in Pune. The Jaguar XF has also received a new heart and a price slash!

The entry level Jaguar XF will now be powered by a 2.2 i4 Td diesel engine with a power output of 190PS @ 3500rpm and 450Nm of Torque @ 2000rpm. The starting price you ask?

Well, that’s a thoroughly juicy 44.5 lacs ex-showroom Mumbai.

Standard features include:

  • Rear view camera
  • TV Tuner
  • Touch screen navigation system
  • Gear shifting paddles
  • Electric sunroof and rear screen electric blind

The Jaguar XF can also be availed in the existing 3.0 V6 Td diesel engine (275PS) and a 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol (510PS). All engines are mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. The Jaguar XF will be built alongside the Land Rover Freelander 2 at the Pune plant.

The key rivals to the Jaguar XF are –

  • BMW 5-Series (Starts at Rs. 39,62,206 – Rs. 59,19,374)
  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class (Starts at Rs. 40,72,855 – Rs. 73,42,295)
  • Audi A6 (Starts at Rs. 40,59,965 – Rs. 50,43,530)
  • Volvo S80 (Starts at Rs. 33,34,234 – Rs. 45,02,581)

The Jaguar XF is definitely a much better looking car and a more exclusive one too. And now with a price slash, a potential segment leader in the making!
