Tata Motors-owned British luxury carmaker Jaguar recently updated the F-Type sports car, while also launching the facelifted XE sedan in India. The F-Type gets a facelift and new aesthetics but retains its original silhouette and proportions.
The updated F-Type gets a set of sleek, horizontal LED headlights in place of the vertical lights of the previous generation. The front grille and bumper have also been tweaked, while the tail lamps and diffuser design feature a fresh appeal. The interiors are equipped with a 12.3-inch interactive driver display, Meridian audio, and an updated touchscreen infotainment system with phone app connectivity.
Jaguar is offering the new F-Type with a 2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine which makes 300PS of maximum power and 400Nm of peak torque.
