The German Trinity has been ruling the Indian automobile luxury car segment for a long time and while these companies were earning huge revenues, the the British marque Jaguar was missing out on the hugely rewarding offer.The reason of this loss was because Jaguar was missing the base variant executive luxury saloon market, where Mercedes, Audi and BMW were having a headfirst with 2.0L and 2.2L base variant. Jaguar has finally taken a heed into that direction and rolled out an extremely competitive 2.2-litre diesel XF. Akin to the the 3.0-litre diesel, the 2.2-litre motor is mounted longitudinally and powers the rear wheels. The power and torque figures are marked at 187bhp and 449Nm respectively and translates directly into a responsive and adequately powerful car.To be true the small engine performance is astoundig and the only time you will probably realise the engine's squeezed down capacity is when you want more urge at high speeds. The 2.2L engine is way too eager to rev to its redline and pulls the vehicle in a linear manner while it is doing so. The sprint capacity is marked for 0-100kph in 9.1sec, which is pretty much on par with the rest of the competition. Its kick-down acceleration times are impressive too, which points to why this engine felt so flexible in Indian heavy traffic.
There is a huge demand for the luxury cars in India and the inclination of the buyers are towards big cars having small engines. This is one of the reasons why most of the manufacturers are heading towards manufacturing bigger cars with smaller engines. Jaguar XF is one of the cars with the same functionality.
Jaguar has rolled out Jaguar XF, which produces 238bhp and 340Nm. This engine is the most powerful one in this segment and it comes mated to an HP transmission. In terms of power, this car is linear and you feel its drive ability. It drives amazingly well and does not make you feel the turbo lack at any time. The gear shift has been made pretty smooth.
As far as its shortcomings are concerned, Jaguar XF is not a car with a huge power capacity. There are other variants of this car available; 3Liter diesel and the super powerful 5Liter, 510bhp XF. The look of this amazing car has been carved out keeping the luxury and comfort of the passengers in mind. The design is aerodynamic and has been made very spacious. Overall, this car is the best option if the users need a petrol car and an XF under 15 lakh.
