With eye on German rivals, Jaguar gets set to launch face lift XE in India

NEW DELHI : It has been on the prowl for some time now and on December 4, Jaguar will unleash the facelift version of the XE sports sedan in India in a bid to bite back touch competition from the company's German rivals.

The XE has had to face some really touch challenge from the likes of Audi A4, Mercedes Benz C-Class and BMW 3 Series but is now sharpening its claws to battle back. The exterior visual elements on the new XE borrows from siblings F-Type and the I-Pace even though it retains a certain flavour of its own. The LED head lights and the tail lights have been redesigned while the front and rear bumpers too have been given a touch of aggression and poise.

Jaguar has also extensively changed the dashboard layout inside the new XE which will now have a more imposing infotainment system and feature a digital instrument panel.

The quality of materials on the inside too will see an upgrade with hard plastics being done away with in a bid to satisfy even the most demanding of customers.

The XE will, in all likelihood, continue to make use of 2.0-litre turbo petrol and a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engines. These, quite obviously, will be upgraded to meet BS 6 standards.
