The all new Jaguar XE is all set to mark its entry to the Indian automobiles market as a sports sedan. The car will be launched on February 3, 2016 which will be the press release day of the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo.
The company claims to redefine the various technical aspects of sports saloon and raise the stakes as a global trends setter. In India the Jaguar XE will join an elite set of sports sedans like the Volvo S60, BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C Class and the Audi A4.
The Jaguar XE will be available exclusively for the Indian markets with two petrol engines as an option. Both these petrol engines would have the capability to offer a staggering power output of 147 kW and 177 kW respectively. Complementing the British carmakers claims of redefining the way sports sedans are perceived in terms of its performance and structure, the XE will feature the all new performance centric aluminium architecture. This will revolutionize the way sedans are manufactured due to the performance enhancing capabilities of lightweight materials like aluminium.
The Jaguar XE parts will be shipped to India and assembled in its unit which is based out of Pune. As to what the experts have manipulated, the price of this performance centric vehicle would be somewhere around Rs.38 Lakhs which is by far the most affordable car ever to be offered from the Jaguar stable in India.
The interiors of this car which is termed by the carmaker as ‘’The Beauty Within’’ will be one of the best that one can expect here in India. The InControl infotainment system would offer a phenomenal touchscreen panel which will feature GPS car navigation and an array of applications that would enable the user to connect with the outside world.
Apart from the no nonsense dashboard which is quite a delight to watch (mainly due to the neat features), the car would also flaunt exclusive cabin materials which would complement the long-standing craftsmanship that Jaguar is known for. The Indian version of the XE will also have the interior mood lighting which is widely appreciated by Jaguar owners across the world. Needless to say, the comfort levels that this car exhibits would be the best that one can expect in the sports sedan segment in India.
The Jaguar XE will further raise the benchmark for excellence by introducing the 380 Watts MeridianTM Sound System which would ensure an amazing experience for those who love their cars to be all decked up.
The Indian version of the Jaguar XE will be loaded with the latest technologies such as the Torque Vectoring by Braking which allows the vehicle to reduce torque to a particular wheel further enhancing the grip of the tyre on the road. The car will also feature the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) which will ensures a great deal of stability in the most slippery conditions.
The exteriors of the XE will exhibit a great deal of aero-dynamism and to further enhance air ventilation inside the car, it would have an electric sliding roof as well. The Jaguar XE will be placed below the XJ and XF models in the Indian markets and due to its competitive pricing this sports sedan is expected to do wonders for Jaguar here in India.
