Jaguar’s new lineup arrives in Mena
Dubai, September 25, 2011
Jaguar Mena has launched its new 12MY fleet featuring the renovated XF and enhanced flagship XJ, as well the new XKR-S, across Mena showrooms.
The sporty XF saloon has won accolades and enthusiastic fans across the globe for its dynamic abilities and dramatic looks, a statement said.
Advances in lighting technology has allowed the new 2012 XF model range to adopt the bold Jaguar design language introduced on the flagship XJ saloon, while the supercharged XFR has received a unique, assertive styling treatment.
The 2012 model year XK builds on the car’s award-winning reputation as a high-performance sporting GT. A new range-topping variant, the XKR-S, creates a new performance flagship for Jaguar by becoming its most powerful production car ever, capable of reaching 300 kmph, and 0-100 kmph in 4.4 seconds.
Purposeful cosmetic alterations to the front and rear have been made to the entire XK range, bringing its visual appeal right up to date, while further personalization options are available to both the car’s performance and styling through a series of special order upgrade packages.
New interior options will allow the discerning driver to emphasize either the luxury or performance aspects of the XK’s nature.
For the flagship Jaguar XJ luxury saloon, a suite of enhancements to the interior and options list for 12MY includes a new rear seat comfort package, which incorporates electric recline, lumbar adjustment and massage functions.
Jaguar has also introduced a 3.0-litre petrol V6 engine, a derivative created especially for the Mena, China and Russia markets.
“Our new fleet is the strongest embodiment of the Jaguar essence that we have seen in decades,” said Robin Colgan, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Mena.
“We now have three very different beautiful fast cars, which are each at the forefront of their individual categories. We’re incredibly excited about our 2012 XK, XF and XJ which will break new boundaries in performance and design.”
“This is the culmination of over 75 years of racing heritage and we’re thrilled to be able to share the performance and racing aptitude of these vehicles with our customers in the Mena region,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
