Jaguar has launched the XF Aero Sport Edition in India, it is a cosmetic update which comes about a month after Mercedes-Benz launched the new E-Class here. Positioned below the XF Premium Luxury 3.0-litre, V6 diesel variant, the XF Aero Sport is essentially a more luxurious version of the XF Luxury 2.2-litre diesel and is expected to appeal to the younger buyers in this segment.
