Luxury SUV seekers are in for an affordable catch with the luxurious Jaguar F-Pace launching at a price of Rs.60 lakh. This means the Jaguar F-Pace has dropped by a whopping Rs 20 lakh to Rs 60.02 lakh for the 2.0-litre Prestige variant (ex-showroom). The steep drop in price is thanks to JLR India’s decision to begin local assembly of the luxury SUV at its plant in Pune.
The company started local assembly for only the 2018 model year 20d AWD Prestige trim, which is the only variant of the SUV on sale at present. The more powerful F-Pace 30d has been discontinued for now but could be reintroduced at a later stage.
The significant decline in asking price of the F-Pace 2.0 should bode well for the SUV as despite being significantly cheaper than the 3.0-litre variants, the vehicle wasn’t competitively priced earlier.
The F-Pace 20d uses JLR’s 2.0-litre, four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine that makes 180hp and has a torque rating of 430Nm. Power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It comes with standard features such as Jaguar Drive Control, LED headlights and tail-lamps, 380V Meridian sound system, a 12.3-inch instrument display and a 10.2-inch touchscreen.
The Jaguar F-Pace is the sixth model from the Jaguar Land Rover product portfolio to be locally manufactured in India. The carmaker has said that bookings for the SUV are now open and deliveries are set to begin from the end of November.
