  1. Hi, Im new to this forum. Seeking advice on buying a luxury sedan around the 50 lac range. Already own the new honda city and fabia, now looking for a replacement for my ford endeavour. Looking for a diesel vehicle with the good rear comfort, safety, good ride handling and latest technology. Have shortlisted the new benz e class, bmw 5 series, jaguar xf and the volvo s80. If there are better options, please add those too.
  2. "We need to play in that world," said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar's global brand director. That World meaning C Class / A4 / 3 Series territory It was in early 2011 reported that Jaguar was working on an compact sedan to rival the 3 / A4 & C Class The upcoming Jaguar sedan is said to be built of lightweight aluminum construction or the PLA (Premium Lightweight Architecture) As for the drivetrain, the Jaguar sports sedan will be rear-wheel-driven (RWD) This junior Jaguar will be based on a new set of components that will also be scaleable enough to be used for the next-generation XF and XJ models. This will allow the company eventually to produce “90 per cent” of all production from one common components set. It is rumored to be named as XS Source: http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/jaguars-bmw-3-series-rival-edges-closer
  3. The Leaping Cat is now the newest on the block to join the SUV bandwagon. It has revealed the car is now in its advanced design stages, and could on sale by 2015. With its compact footprint on the road, the long-awaited SUV (expected to be called Q-type or XQ, after Jaguar trademarked both names) will battle the BMW X3 and Audi Q5. But rather than borrowing its underpinnings from theRR Evoque, the newcomer will share its chassis with Jaguar’s forthcoming BMW 3 Series rival. The SUV and compact exec are expected to use a chopped-down version of the XJ’s all-aluminium platform, which will not only help to keep weight down but spread the development costs, too. Both will also get a fuel-saving electric power-steering system – a Jaguar first that was developed on the C-X75 supercar – plus they’ll be offered with the option of rear or four-wheel drive. Given the SUV’s size, the focus will be on four-cylinder engines. These are expected to include the 240bhp 2.0-litre Si4 turbo and 2.2-litre SD4 diesel (in a variety of outputs) from the Evoque. But both are set to be re-engineered for better fuel economy and refinement, while the latest eight-speed ZF auto box will be fitted as standard. At the top of the range, a 340bhp version of Jaguar’s 3.0-litre supercharged V6 could be offered, as could a petrol-electric hybrid. The hybrid is expected to use tech derived from the C-X75 project, with one electric motor working with the engine to drive the rear axle and a second turning the front axle for four-wheel drive.

  4. Looks like testing for the next generation Jaguar XJ has already begun. Here are pictures of it on public roads. It’s likely that this prototype is a hybrid of the new Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) floor and crash structure, combined with the upper structure of the current Jaguar XJ. In its present form, the XJ was launched in late 2009 and is expected to be replaced by 2016. There’s no news on whether similar mould-breaking looks will be carried across to the new car. By the time it is replaced, the XJ will be the only aluminium JLR model still based on the first-generation riveted-and-bonded aluminium architecture. The new XJ will be based on the PLA, which also underpins the latest Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. The PLA is also scheduled to be used as a basis for the Land Rover Discovery replacement. JLR revealed that a third of its entire engineering staff were working on the aluminium PLA platform and the Mk4 Range Rover. The PLA is more flexible in the kind of vehicle it can underpin, plus major changes have been made to the production-line technology, including the advanced robotic rivet guns. Source: Autocar UK
  5. Premium luxury car

    Hello , I'm Viswadeep from coimbatore and I've been reading your article for last 5 years and am a huge fan of yours. I'm planning to buy a car for 50 lakhs and I've a confusion between BMW 520d and Jaguar XF 2.2. I'm slightly leaning towads BMW as it has adjustable dampers, but my friends say that Jaguar has a better brand value than BMW. I'm 6.2 feet tall and my priorities are space, power and ground clearance more importantly as roads are not good in my place. Kindly suggest me the best between the two.
  6. The news is just in that Jaguar is launching a 2.0 litre EcoBoost petrol variant of its XJ luxo barge in India. Power will be around 237 bhp and price is said to be Rs. 1.16 crore ex Showroom Delhi which makes it 14 lakhs cheaper than the 3.0 V6 I think Jaguar should go the CKD way with this XJ variant because it still costs more than its rivals. Going CKD will bring down the price further and should be awesome if it came under the 1 crore mark Ex showroom. JLR already assembles the Freelander and XF 2.2 at Pune so this would be a good idea. Opinions?
  7. SPOTTED: Jaguar F-Type testing in India

    Its here. The Jaguar F-Type has landed in India. This gorgeous looking white car was spotted at KBS Chowk in Chinchwad Pune. The rear badges and the badges on the alloy wheels were covered. The standard F-Type, if we can call it that, comes with a supercharged 3.0 V6 under the bonnet. It puts out 335bhp and does the sprint to 100kph in a claimed 5.3 seconds. The S model puts out a substantially higher 375bhp and there’s even a ‘mad hatter’ V8 S that puts out 488bhp. 0-100kph in the V8 S takes just 4.3 seconds. The F-Type will, however, come to India in two variants, the supercharged V6 S and a supercharged V8 S with prices expected to be in the range of Rs 1.3-1.5 crore. The F-Type is slated for a July 2013 launch Here are the pictures Pics Source: IndianAutosBlog
  8. After the Supersport, I never thought that Jaguar would come up with an R version for the current XJ but I have been proved wrong. The XJR is coming and will be showcased at the New York Motor Show 2013. Power for the XJR comes from Jaguar’s famed supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine. In the XJR, it produces 542bhp, the same power output as the recently unveiled XFR-S. Jaguar hasn’t confirmed any performance figures for its new rear-wheel drive saloon, but a 0-100kph time close to 5.0sec would be expected. Jaguar has promised “supercar performance” for the new model. Darkened mesh is used for the front grille and air intakes, a front lip spoiler is added, and chrome trim contrasts against the gun metal grey paint finish. Large five-spoke alloys wrapped in low-profile tyres are further additions to the most potent XJ ever. Jaguar hasn’t gone into detail on the “bespoke chassis and aerodynamic developments” the XJR has compared to the standard XJ. Full details will be confirmed at the New York motor show. As a big Jaguar fan I am extremely excited about this. Hope to see this hit Indian shores soon
  9. Jaguar goes the CKD-way with XF 2.2

    Jaguar has launched the XF with a 2.2 four cylinder diesel engine putting out 187 bhp. The XF is now being assembled at the Chakan plant in Pune where the Freelander is also assembled making it the second JLR product to see local assembly. Looks wise the distinguishing factors from the 3.0 litre model is the single exhaust pipe and the absence of the 'S' badge on the boot. But it does get a lot of goodies like satellite navigation and a switch that allows rear passengers to slide the front passenger seat back and forth. Other small but significant additions to an equipment list that also includes a reverse camera, dual-zone climate control, paddle-shifters, keyless go, a sunroof, Bluetooth connectivity and USB and aux-in ports. The XF 2.2 is available at a price of Rs. 44.5 lakhs (Ex Showroom Mumbai) Read Autocar India's review on the 2.2 XF here http://www.autocarindia.com/Review/269350,new-jaguar-xf-22-diesel-review-test-drive.aspx/1
  10. Jaguar has taken the covers of the most fastest saloon it has ever produced. Say hello to the XFR-S. With 5.0 liter Supercharged engine belting out 550 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque. The car demolishes the 0 to 100 kph in 4.4 seconds and does a top wack of 300 kph. And boy does it look gorgeous. This French Racing Blue colour is out of this world.

  11. Jaguar has finally confirmed that it will be launching the XF with a 2.2 diesel engine by the end of 2012. The engine will be tuned to be compatible with local diesel available in India which means it will come without a DPF filter. Jaguar has suffered quite a bit because of the duty norms which makes their cars more expensive than their German counterparts. However local assembly of the XF will not happen before 2013. Locally assembling the XF will help bring the down the costs of the car by a fair margin. It will be assembled in the same facility which currently assembles the LR Freelander 2. JLR combined sold 2,300 cars in 2011 and this year hopes to clock 2,500 units. The XF 2.2 should hot up things in the mid luxury segment for sure
