The XF 2.2 is a crucial game changer for the British luxury car marque in India. As it can now compete directly with its German rivals, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi on two fronts, price and variants.

 

Each of the three German luxury car makers in India sell two diesel versions of their executive luxury sedans, the entry level diesel is either a 2.2 litre (in case of Mercedes-Benz) or a 2.0 litre (in case of Audi and BMW) unit while the flagship diesel models are powered by 3.0 litre powerplants.

 

In the smaller diesel engine category, Mercedes-Benz has the most powerful car with the E250 CDI Avantgarde developing 206PS of power and 500Nm of torque while the Jaguar XF 2.2 diesel comes in a close second. Both cars wear an almost identical price tag too.

 

The Jaguar XF 2.2 litre diesel will compete against the Audi A6 2.0 TDI, BMW 525d, and the Mercedes-Benz E 250 CDI Avantgarde in India.
