Locally assembled Jaguar XJ Launched in Mumbai

Jaguar will now assemble its flagship sedan XJ at their facility in Pune

Jaguar has relaunched it's 3.0-litre version of its luxury sedan XJ at an extremely competitive price of Rs 92.1 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai, before octroi). Along with the XF sedan and the Land Rover Freelander, the XJ too will be produced at the facility in Pune.

Despite the price cut, the XJ will now get a lot more equipment than before including massage seats at the back, electric sun blinds, 10-inch rear screens, LED reading lights and a new business table. The Jaguar XJ will be made available in two variants - Premium Luxury and the top-of-the-line Portfolio. The 3-litre V6 oil burner produces 275PS of power and an impressive 600Nm of torque. The rear-wheel drive car is mated to a 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Aside from Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz too started assembling its luxury sedan the S-Class in India earlier this year. Needless to say the price of the S-Class too was slashed. With the XJ too coming at a seemingly affordable price point, it will be interesting to see these two cars battle it out in the luxury sedan market.
