Promising to rev up the entry-level luxury segment yet again, Jaguar on Wednesday launched the all new XE at a starting price of ₹44.98 lakh, going up to ₹46.32 lakh (ex showroom prices)
There is a lot happening for the new XE in comparison to the outgoing model which had first launched in India back in February of 2016. The new XE gets a revamped front which now features a much stronger stance, sculpted bonnet, sleeker LED head lights and tail lights, and a noticeably larger front grille.
On the inside, Jaguar designers have gone the extra distance to give the new XE a sporty touch and feel. The car gets a wraparound dashboard, updated cockpit design which cocoons the driver and occupants and updated seats which boast even more luxury and comfort than in the erstwhile XE. The centre console has been raised a tad to underline the sporty feel on the inside.
