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.
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
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
