The British AUto manufacturer has already commenced bookings for the upcoming diesel variant

Jaguar has launched the XE in India back in February 2016, but it was only launched with a petrol variant. The XE petrol variant gets the 2.0-litre, in-line 4 engine which churns out 197bhp @ 5,500rpm and 320Nm of torque @ 1,200-4,500rpm. But after a year the British luxury car maker has decided to introduce the diesel variant of the sedan as well. The company has even started taking bookings in all the 24 dealerships across India.

The diesel variant of the XE will get the 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo diesel engine. This engine develops around 177bhp of peak power at 4000rpm and 430Nm of torque at 1,750 – 2,500rpm. The engine will be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The diesel motor powered XE is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h mark in 7.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 228km/h.

The XE is the entry level offering from Jaguar which has definitely own immense popularity because of its styling and modern features. Apart from the XE the Jaguar range also consists of XF, XJ, F-Pace SUV and the F-Type coupe and convertible.
