Snapshot: Jaguar has started taking bookings for the facelift of its flagship saloon XJ L in India

The British automaker, Jaguar, has started taking bookings for the facelift of its flagship saloon, XJ L, in India. The 2014 XJ L was showcased at Auto Expo India in February this year where company also announced that it would assemble the upcoming XJ L in India via CKD route. The XJ L has been the company's most luxurious saloon that carries a  distinctive coupe like shape but yet has a sporty presence in itself.  The current generation model was introduced in 2009.

The new model doesn't boast of any major change except few redone ornamental elements like redesigned front grille and slightly reshaped headlight and bumpers. The India-bound XJ L will continue to get propelled with current powerplant options, which are 2.0-litre inline-4 turbocharged petrol engine and 3.0-litre V6 oil burner. The petrol mill produces 240 PS of power and 340 Nm of torque at 1750 RPM and hits 100 kmph from standstill in 7.5 seconds with impressive mileage figure of 9.4 kmpl. The mighty 3.0-litre diesel engine churns out 275 PS and torque of 600 Nm at 2000 RPM. While it takes only 6.4 seconds for 0-100 kmph shootout, the car is also more efficient with 12.9 kmpl. Both engines are mated to an 8 speed automatic gearbox.

Jaguar has started taking bookings for the 2014 XJ L with an initial booking amount of five lakh rupees and deliveries will commence from June this year. The Jaguar XJ L will be a contender for the BMW 7-Series, Audi A8 and recently launched Mercedes S-class. And being a locally assembled model this time, the big Jag undoubtedly will reach the Indian outlets with an attractive sticker price against its competitors.
