The British automaker has finally introduced the diesel version of the Jaguar XE in India with starting Delhi showroom price of Rs 38.25 Lakh. The Jaguar XE was only available with a petrol engine until now. This model is available in three variants, the Pure, Prestige and the Portfolio. The diesel version is Rs 1 lakh more expensive than the petrol version.
The new XE is powered by a 2.0-litre Ingenium motor. The 2.0-litre diesel engine produces 180PS of power and 430Nm of torque and is coupled to Jaguar’s eight-speed automatic gearbox. This engine also powers the diesel version of its elder siblings, the XF and the F-Pace SUV.
There is no change in design and feature. It comes with features like 380W Meridian Sound System, sliding panoramic sunroof, surround camera system, 10-way electrically adjustable front seats and an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with navigation. The bookings for the XE diesel had commenced for a token amount of Rs 2 lakh. The XE primarily competes with the diesel variants of the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4 and the Volvo S60.
