Jaguar XE launched at Rs. 39.90 lakh in India

Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd on Wednesday launched its compact sedan, XE, at the ongoing 2016 Indian Auto Expo here.  The car features a Rs. 39.90 lakhs (Ex-showroom Delhi) price tag, which will definitely help it go head-to-head with the likes of BMW 3-Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-class.

Jaguar XE is available in 2 petrol variants. The standard 2.0-litre petrol unit produces 200PS of power and 320Nm of peak torque, whereas the turbocharged 2.0-litre powerplant delivers 240PS of power output and 340Nm of peak torque. To put things in perspective, one must understand that the arch rivals of XE like BMW 3-Series and Audi A4 deliver relatively inferior power outputs of 187PS and 177PS respectively.

Rohit Suri, president of Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd, said, “The most-awaited Jaguar XE has hit the Indian roads today with its powerful stance and seductive looks. To meet the growing demand for petrol-powered vehicles, we have introduced the Jaguar XE in two petrol engine derivatives. This will also enable us to enter a new industry segment and make Jaguar more accessible to our customers.
