Jaguar Land Rover India equips Jaguar F-type with the Ingenium petrol engine

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 16 Jul 2018

Jaguar Land Rover India has introduced four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and will be incorporated in F-type’s entry-level four-cylinder model to Jaguar’s 322 km/h, all-weather supercar – the F-type SVR.

The all-aluminium sports car with the tuned 221 kW 2.0 l turbocharged petrol motor claims to deliver enhanced agility and improved efficiency and affordability.

The Ingenium engine contributes to an overall vehicle weight reduction of 52 kg – most of which is over the front axle – and JLR asserts that this is key to the four-cylinder F-type’s enhanced agility. The company has showcased meticulous tuning of the chassis to complement the new engine for greater steering response, body control and ride comfort. A finely-tuned active exhaust is standard on entry-level F-type models, while the R-Dynamic variants feature a switchable active exhaust for an even more involving driving experience.

This will make our sportscar brand more accessible to Jaguar fans and customers across the spectrum. Enthusiasts are sure to be thrilled by the appeal of this pure breed F-TYPE with its own unique driving character.”

Jaguar F-TYPE 2.0 l Coupe starts from Rs 90.93 Lakh while the 2.0 l Convertible starts from Rs 101.45 Lakh.
