Jaguar to launch diesel XF in India

Jaguar plans to launch the diesel version of the XF powered by a 3-litre, V6 diesel engine.

Seeing the massive growth in demand for diesel luxury cars in India with Mercedes and BMW launching their latest diesel engines Jaguar too intends to do the same. Jaguar will be introducing the 3.0-litre diesel with a non-particulate filter and will ensure that this engine can run on the type of diesel fuel available in India.

The XF diesel, when launched in India, will accompany the XF petrol that is available with 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine producing a massive 385bhp, while churning out 52.5kgm of maximum torque. Equipped with 6-speed Auto box, the V8 petrol is capable of touching 0-60kph mark in 3.45sec, while taking 6.74sec to reach the ton.

Although the V8 petrol retails at Rs. 68.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai), the XF diesel is estimated to be around Rs. 50 lakh when it debuts in India later this year.
