Jaguar Land Rover Middle East and North Africa (Mena) and Alfardan Premier Motors, its exclusive importer in Qatar, are set to debut two of the automaker’s newest vehicles to the region at a show in Doha, Qatar next month.
The fifth edition of Qatar Motor Show will run from February 6 to 10 at the Qatar National Convention Centre.
The new Jaguar XE, the lightest, stiffest and most aerodynamic Jaguar saloon ever built, will be on display giving visitors a chance to take a closer look at this aluminium-intensive Jaguar, said a statement.
It will feature class-leading dynamics, refinement and technology. With its lightweight construction expertise, sophisticated chassis technology in addition to the new family of Ingenium engines, the Jaguar XE is redefining the concept of the sports saloon, it said.
The Range Rover Sport SVR will also make its first appearance in the Middle East region during the motor show.
The vehicle is the first model to wear the SVR designation being adopted by future Land Rover and Jaguar high-performance models, said the statement.
Accelerating from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds with a top speed electronically limited to 260km/h, the Range Rover Sport SVR is the fastest and most powerful Land Rover ever produced. Designed, engineered and built in Britain, this vehicle amplifies the engineering integrity; robustness and attention to detail that are Land Rover hallmarks, it said.
The firm will also showcase Jaguar Land Rover’s 2015 model year range of vehicles, including the Discovery Sport, which was launched in the region in Dubai recently.
The new Discovery Sport has been billed as the world’s most versatile and capable premium compact SUV, unique to its segment. Ensuring comfort, it also retains the breadth of class-leading all-terrain capability for which Land Rover is world-renowned.
Bruce Robertson, managing director for Jaguar Land Rover Mena, said: “We are proud to be part of the Qatar Motor Show once again this year showcasing some of our most exciting vehicles and unveiling two of our newest launches to the region’s car enthusiasts.
“We are confident that with our line-up this year including the Jaguar XE, the Range Rover Sport SVR and the new Discovery Sport, will resonate with our customers in Qatar and the rest of Mena.”
