Jaguar has added a brand new trim - the R-Sport Black - to its executive saloon XF. Featuring a comprehensive list of specification enhancements, including 20” Black Kalimnos alloy wheels and 770w Meridian Surround Sound system, the R-Sport Black offers an additional £8,770 (Around 8.19 Lakhs) worth of value over standard R-Sport models for just a £2,100 (Around 2 Lakhs) increase to its On-the-Road price.
The Jaguar XF is a firm favourite with car buyers, with sales increasing every year since launch. It recorded its best year of sales to date in 2014, and helped to drive Jaguar to its strongest full year performance in nearly a decade. Jaguar Land Rover Managing Director Jeremy Hicks said: “The XF combines style, luxury, comfort and the kind of sporty drive that only Jaguars deliver. That’s why it has always been popular with customers – and, thanks to the addition of R-Sport Black and our 2015 range enhancements, it now offers even better value for money.” To streamline the range, SE, SE Business and Premium Luxury trim levels have been discontinued, as have the 3.0-litre V6 petrol and 240PS 3.0-litre TDV6 diesel engines. As a result, the range now starts with the generously specified Luxury trim.
All models in the XF saloon and Sportbrake range now come with Winter Comfort Pack and Parking Pack as standard. That means all models get heated seats and windscreen plus front parking sensors and a rear camera. In addition, higher specification Portfolio, Diesel S Portfolio, XFR and XFR-S variants now all benefit from Blind Spot Monitor as standard, while most models in the range gain upgraded alloy wheels. Jaguar Land Rover India, taking a leaf out of Jaguar UK's book, might also consider offering the R-Sport Black derivative in the country to benefit buyers with enhanced features and equipments.
