2016 Jaguar XE

 

 

The beautiful Jaguar XE has finally been launched in India at a starting price of Rs 39.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The XE will give Jaguar a much needed push in terms of sales figures by putting it up right against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the newly refreshed BMW 3 Series and the all-new Audi A4. The new Jaguar XE will also bring in the Tata owned British auto manufacturer’s updated design language to India which will also translate to the new XF and the new XJ.

Talking a bit more about the new design language, the new Jaguar XE gets a large and stylish front grille and sleek headlamps. As with all Jaguars, the XE also gets a long bonnet and gills, elements which are inspired by the gorgeous F-Type. The XE has a sporty stance in side profile accentuated by the sloping roofline and attractive alloy wheel design. The rear gets a lip for the boot lid, taillamps that don’t do justice to the rest of the design and split circular exhaust.

In terms of engines, the diesel will be a 2.0-litre unit which will come in two states of tune. The base version will put out 163PS of peak power and 380Nm of peak torque while the top of the line diesel version will make 180PS of peak power and 430Nm of peak torque. On the other hand, the petrol engine, also a 2.0-litre engine will also get two states of tune. The entry level car will make 200PS of peak power with 280Nm of torque while the more powerful variant will make 240PS of peak power and 340Nm of peak torque.

 

The Jaguar XE will also get a S variant which gets a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine that will make 345PS of peak power and 450Nm of peak torque which will propel the car from 0-100kmph in under 5-seconds and on the way to a limited top speed of 250kmph which will be launched eventually. The new Jaguar XE is a make-it-or-break-it car for Jaguar both worldwide and in India.
