In a bid to increase its footprint in the Indian luxury car market, Jaguar today announced the launch of a new edition of its current entry-level offering, the XF sedan. Launched only as a diesel variant, the new XF Executive Edition sports the 2.2-litre engine, which until now could only be found under the hood of the Luxury version that costs INR 49.38 lakh (ex-showroom) in Delhi. The latest edition has been priced at INR 45.12 lakh (ex-showroom, pre-octroi) in Mumbai making it the cheapest Jaguar you can buy in India right now.
‘Cheap’ sounds like a misnomer here actually when you are talking about a segment where there are cars like this one along with the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes E-Class. Nevertheless, the XF has become more accessible now. But in the process, in the Executive Edition guise, it has lost out on some of the features of the Luxury XF like the Rearview Camera, Memory Function for the driver seat and mirrors, Front Passenger Seat Away button, and Sunroof among a few others.
