  • Built on a new platform that uses a light-weight aluminium monocoque chassis, which is based on an aluminium intensive architecture.
  • The exterior features are pretty much in line with the sibling models like the XJ and XF. This car offers sharp features on the exterior with pronounced fluid character lines.
  • As mentioned earlier, this is a median model and there are not many changes or added features as compared to the other two models. Although, there are few additions like OVRMs with memory, parking camera for the rear, electric power assisted steering, Taurus leather upholstery, low speed cruise control, ambient lighting, sunroof, 380W sound system and memory function for the driver seat.
  • Under the hood, this saloon remains the same and features a 2.0L petrol engine which produces a power of 198bhp and a torque of 320Nm. This engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission which is a standard offering just like in the other variants.
  • This car does a whopping 0-100 km/h in a measly 7.7 seconds.
  • The competitors of this vehicle are the Mercedes C-Class, BMW 3 series and Audi A4. Although there are quite a few competitors, for the price and the features, this car is much more reasonably priced and within your means.
  • This Jaguar will be available across all dealerships in India.
  • The three variants are priced at INR 40 lakh (Pure), INR 43.69 lakh (Prestige) and INR 48 lakh (Portfolio).
