 is the new face of Indian film fraternity and a gorgeous diva who is known for her sensual looks. This star celebrity is hugely known as the cousin of leading actress Priyanka Chopra, but has made her own mark in the Bollywood industry owing to her sheer talent on-screen. She has won several admiration and accolades for flicks like Ishaqzaade, Ladies Vs Ricky Behal and Hasee Toh Phasee. The glamorous diva is a big earner and likes to spend money on shopping as well as travelling to exotic destinations. Notably, the actress also has a penchant for luxurious new cars and owns a couple of models parked in her garage. She has an Audi A6 and her recent purchase includes the stunning looking Jaguar XJL, which is an iconic luxury car of the British auto giant.

Among all the Jaguar models, the XJL is specifically astonishing in terms of looks and power. This 4-door 4-seater sedan is available in India in diesel and petrol guise, which is offered  with two engine options of 3.0-litre and 5.0-litre. In a range of Rs. 1.25 crore – Rs. 1.90 crore, this model is among the costliest Jaguar cars in India. Interestingly, the Jaguar owners club is widespread in the nation and mostly includes famous celebrities who own majority of these cars in India. The Jaguar models are considered ideal to suit the taste of these personalities and also justify their stature. To start with, Shahid Kapoor owns a red Jaguar, Hrithik Roshan has the XJ model, Jackie Shroff owns the SS Jaguar 1939 model and Ekta Kapoor has the XJR. The SS model owned by Jackie Shroff is among the rarest Jaguar cars in India.

The Jaguar XJL sedan owned by Parineeta Chopra is a power-pack performer, which is tapped under the hood with a 3.0-litre V6 Supercharged petrol engine along with a 3.0-litre Supercharged diesel mill. The former engine is capable of churning a power output of a mammoth 335 bhp with 440 Nm of peak torque, whereas, latter can generate 271 bhp with maximum torque of 600 Nm. Notably, there is also a heavy capacity 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine, which can belt out 385 bhp of power with a maximum torque of 625 Nm. All these engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which feeds all the energy to the rear wheels of the car.

Features of paddle shift, keyless start, panoramic sunroof/moonroof, automatic climate zone with separate rear zone, fine-quality leather upholstery and retractable ORVMs are given as standard in this car. All the Jaguar models are considered to be safe cars and the heavy chassis of the XJL also ensures maximum safety of passengers. The Jaguar cars in India, including this variant, are equipped with features of Brake Assist, Traction Control, engine immobiliser, Electronic Stability Program and Anti-lock Brake System to ensure full safety. It must be noted that the Parineeta Chopra bought the car soon after her sister Priyanka Chopra purchased a Rolls-Royce model. Where Priyanka Chopra is well-settled in the indutsry, her cousin is also on an upsurge to touch the same heights. It will be of interest to see how many similarities the audience witnesses between these siblings in the upcoming time.
