Just doesn't add up. You rock up to a party and you ll be type casted forever as the geezer who couldn't afford a car with a proper engine.

For the same money get a different car but one with at least 3L and 6 cyl
Spot on - I don't know who that car is meant for? If you can pony up 93 lakhs for a car, you obviously have money to afford fuel. What totally puzzles me is that the 3.0l is only like 2-3% more expensive. This should have been a 20% cheaper car, IMHO. Like 75 lakhs or so. Makes it a value prop for midsize 5 series and E class buyers.

92.1 lakhs for a base variant seems to be costly that too with 2.0L engine. In US the base with 3.0 L v6 cost $75K, so this car should be at least in 50 - 55 L considering it's manufactured locally. I am not sure how much localization is done but 92.1 lakhs for 2L engine is a serious joke.

I like the XJ. Very nice car. Ive driven the 3.0L version for a couple of hours in the UK. I prefer the supercharged 4.0L V8 on my XJ, but this 3.0L is a very nice engine. I agree, i would hardly think that fuel efficiency on this segment is a big thing. Get a Prius otherwise.

The pricing of the XJ 3.0L diesel LWB Portfolio trim is Rs.98.69 lakhs whereas the LWB Premium trim is priced at Rs.92.10 lakhs. The diesel variant is ~Rs.6.45 lakhs dearer than the petrol car with similar spec and these are ex-showroom Mumbai prices before octroi and other charges, hence the on road price difference will be much more.

As Sahil rightly mentioned, this car will make sense for corporates or users who are almost all the time chauffeured around in with back seat comfort being their priority.
