For over half a century the Jaguar XJ has pushed boundaries to deliver innovation and style. The XJ has always been the marques premier saloon car, representing the combination of cutting-edge automotive technology, sporting dynamics and opulent luxury. Inside there's space to stretch out, relax or work, using the latest connected technology, Touch Pro - With Touch Pro's 10" Touchscreen and 4G Wi-Fi Internet, the XJ has everything you require to make your journey productive, entertaining and relaxing, so you can arrive at your destination prepared for just about anything.

Always working seamlessly to help keep all occupants safe is an enhanced suite of Jaguar Advanced Driver Assist Systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist. While for safer driving at night energy-efficient full-LED headlights, standard on every XJ, produce penetrating light with a quality close to daylight.

Performance - The Jaguar XJ range offers a high-performance diesel engine, delivering everything from strong fuel economy to a top speed of 155mph. The powerful, refined 3.0 litre V6 300PS Turbocharged Diesel engine offers CO2 emissions as low as 184g/km. It delivers 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds thanks to a torque output of 700Nm aided by the Intelligent Stop/Start feature. To smooth your progress, all models feature a sophisticated 8-speed automatic transmission.

Advanced Driving Dynamics – The XJ delivers the comfort and refinement of a luxury car with the responsiveness and driver involvement of a sports car, no mean feat! - Whether you're cornering, navigating uneven surfaces or accelerating, the XJ's Adaptive Dynamics system continually monitors the car up to 500 times a second. Working in conjunction with the air suspension it constantly varies the damping to suit the conditions. These intelligent adjustments keep the XJ flat and stable, improving control without loss of ride comfort.

In unexpected road and weather conditions, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) reacts as soon as the system detects the wheels slipping. Trac DSC provides a sportier drive by allowing some slippage or over spin before the system engages. XJ also features selectable driving modes for specific performance requirements - In addition to 'Drive' and 'Sport', Dynamic Mode gives more responsive acceleration; Winter Mode delivers more progressive control in slippery conditions.

Interior Luxury – The quality of craftsmanship throughout the Jaguar XJ cabin sets it apart. With a wide choice of colours, materials and finishes, the interior reflects the clarity and purity of XJ's exterior - Multi-functional seating gives complete control of your comfort AS front seats feature fine-tuned electric adjustment and can be specified with five different massage programmes. All seats are heated and feature a cooling function as well (excluding XJ Luxury model) while some XJ models offer three-position user memory on the driver and front passenger seats. Long Wheelbase models can be further enhanced with a choice of Rear Seat Option Packs, featuring two individual airline-style reclining seats complete with three massage programmes and memory. The reclining rear seats can be programmed to return to an upright position when the door is opened and a 'front passenger seat away' function allows rear occupants to move the empty front passenger seat forward to increase legroom and aid access.

Long Wheelbase (LWB) models feature over a metre of legroom for rear seat passengers providing the perfect environment to work, enjoy a host of entertainment options, or simply stretch out and relax. LWB models also feature a unique 'limousine' ride with revised air suspension settings for even more refined comfort. Depending on the model, or options chosen, the rear cabin can be further enhanced with individual 10" HD screens. The centre armrest houses the multimedia remote and front and rear seat controls, as well as providing useful storage. Folding business tables, LED reading lights, drop-in footrests and electric side rear window blinds are also available to add comfort, convenience and privacy.

Technology – Delivering a wealth of information and entertainment, every XJ is equipped with Jaguar’s InControl Infotainment system, Touch Pro. Featuring intuitive and advanced integrated technologies to ensure everyone can make the most of their journey - Connect Pro is a package of applications and technologies that keeps the XJ connected to the world. It runs a suite of useful smartphone apps from the 10" Touchscreen. Connect Pro's services, technologies and applications give you the very best in connectivity and convenience, all supported by a fast 4G Wi-Fi Internet connection through a powerful external antenna.

With Remote Premium you can connect to, and monitor, your XJ from anywhere and even pre-heat or cool the cabin before entering. XJ's high-definition Interactive Driver Display puts everything you need to know about your driving right in front of you. The 12.3" TFT screen displays the speed, fuel and temperature gauges and can be set to display the most relevant information, depending on the situation and set up.

Jaguar's rejuvenation continues with this improved version of the company's flagship XJ luxury saloon. Jonathan Crouch drives it.

Ten Second Review

With startling looks that combine with clever lightweight aluminium construction, Jaguar's XJ saloon is now a firmly established choice amongst top executives who don't want something from one of the German brands in the top luxury sector. Now it's been significantly upgraded, with stronger standards of safety and infotainment, plus there's a potent flagship XJR575 model.

Background

In the past five years, Jaguar has changed public perceptions. It's now a very cool brand, making high-end products that are tasteful, powerful and ultimately good to look at. With mediocre models long gone, the Big Cat is back and purring. Now recognised as one of the most prestigious carmakers in the world, this British brand, now well established under the ownership of Indian firm TATA, is bringing a whole range of fresh models to market - at the same time as significantly improving its existing designs, cars like the XJ luxury saloon we're going to look at here. With rivals like BMW's 7 Series, Audi's A8 and the Mercedes S-Class all having lately upped their game, this XJ has been treated to a further significant upgrade with includes the addition of a potent range-topping XJR575 variant. As before, there are short and long wheelbase bodystyles and either way, ultimate luxury has been prioritised. Certainly, there's classy engineering on offer here in a car that's refined, comfortable and powerful - everything in fact, that you'd expect a Jaguar to be.

Driving Experience

Engine-wise, the only XJ option is now the 300PS 3.0-litre V6 diesel. Torque is rated at 700Nm. As a result of that prodigious pulling power, this car feels very quick indeed, 62mph from rest flashing by in 6.2s en route to an artificially-limited maximum of 155mph. As with all versions of this Jag, that performance is channelled through an electronically-controlled eight-speed auto ZF gearbox, complete with wheel-mounted paddle shifters and a selectable quicker-shifting 'S' option. On the move, those familiar with earlier versions of this car should notice an electric power steering system that's more feelsome these days. Refinement as ever is impressive, the cabin well insulated, particularly at motorway speeds. It's driver-focused too: a beautiful place to be. The fully independent suspension is similar to that in the XF but drivers have the option of choosing standard, Dynamic or Winter settings via the JaguarDrive rotary knob that takes the place of a conventional gear lever. These modes adjust the suspension, throttle response, gearshift speeds, stability control settings and the active differential to produce the desired results. The gearbox itself is an electronically-controlled six-speed auto complete with wheel-mounted paddle shifters which sends drive to the rear wheels on all XJ models. Jaguar is intent on this XJ being seen as a real driver's car.

Design and Build

In both short and long wheelbase guises, the sinewy lines of the XJ serve to emphasise its sporting intent. The front end borrows heavily from the XF, the sharply contoured bonnet and the wire mesh grille that juts forward from the plain of the headlights giving it real presence. The full LED headlights come with 'active front steer', 'static bend' and 'auto high beam assist' functions. The front end features a large, upright grille, while sculpted chrome blades in the outboard air intakes aim to emphasise what Jaguar sees as the car's 'mature, prestigious character'. LED lights at the rear feature a more distinctive night time signature. On the inside, the cabin is a fabulous place to spend time in. The craftsmanship is first class and the materials used for the switchgear and on the dash are of top quality. If you can stretch to top 'Autobiography' trim, you'll enjoy plush 'semi-aniline' leather and classy inlay veneers. All variants get the latest version of Jaguar's 'InControl Touch Pro' premium infotainment system, which now features a larger 10-inch centre-dash screen, this set-up allowing a de-cluttering of buttons on a central console that's pleasing to the eye. As before, the cabin's very spacious, as is the boot, at 520-litres in size.

Market and Model

As before, pricing sits mainly in the £63,000 to £77,000 bracket - on a par with the likes of the Audi A8 and the Mercedes S Class. Bear in mind though, that XJ models tend to come better equipped than their German rivals. There are six trim levels - 'Luxury', 'Premium Luxury', 'Portfolio', 'R-Sport', 'XJ50' and 'Autobiography'. The entry-level 3.0D SWB model in 'Luxury' trim starts at around £63,000. If you want a long wheelbase body style, you'll have to pay a £3,000 premium. Standard equipment includes smarter LED headlights and classier leather inside, plus Jaguar's much improved 'InControl Touch Pro' infotainment system with its larger 10-inch screen. Included safety kit runs to the usual things - dynamic stability control (the 'Trac DSC' set-up), twin front, side and curtain airbags, front seats with a whiplash protection system, a blindspot warning set-up built into the door mirrors and a pop-up bonnet to improve protection for pedestrians. Jaguar has now added in a suite of standard camera-driven safety features, including 'Autonomous Emergency Braking', 'Lane Keep Assist' and 'Driver Condition Monitoring'.

Cost of Ownership

Luxury saloons in this sector of the market are not going to be cheap to run, However, with the 3.0-litre diesel engine, then this XJ will return reasonable economy thanks to a claimed combined cycle figure of up to 37.9mpg (WLTP) and a CO2 emission level of 184g/km (NEDC). Servicing costs will inevitably be high as parts such as brakes and tyres for Jaguars are expensive - but then this is no different to rivals including the Audi A8 and the BMW 7 Series. What else? You get the usual unremarkable three year warranty, though to be fair it does cover you for up to 100,000 miles. Plus, as you'd expect, it's extendable at extra cost. Service intervals are set at 16,000miles or every 24 months, whichever comes first, though it would be sensible to consider one of Jaguar's Service Plans that cover you for virtually everything in advance. There's a 'Standard Mileage Service Plan' that covers you for five years/50,000 miles. Or a 'High Mileage Service Plan' that covers five years/75,000 miles. Jaguar also offers an online service so that owners can remotely check their car's service history.

Summary

There's no doubt that this XJ remains an outstanding technical achievement. But then the same can be said of many of its rivals. Where this Jaguar is different though, can be summed up in that one simple but very telling word 'character'. Rather than being merely a larger version of an existing model, this is a stand-alone design in its own right. As a result. it feels special in a way that German rivals struggle to match. More importantly, this car's unique selling points aren't only restricted to the way that it looks. Even if you don't agree with Designer Ian Callum's vision of the future of luxury motoring, you'll have to admit that the cabin is on another level from its rivals, even if it can't quite match them for space. And it offers the kind of involving driving experience you simply wouldn't expect from a car of this size. Bold and ferociously modern, this is a car you can bond with - and a luxury saloon that it's very difficult to ignore.
