The New Premium Jaguar XJ is Revealed. 

Jaguar has revealed details of its revised largest saloon, the XJ, which had its biggest update since its 2010 introduction.  

The 2016 facelift receives a few minor styling upgrades, such as new LED light design, a more upright grille and a chrome finish for the air intakes in the outer edges of the front bumper.

On the inside, the new XJ boosts its luxuriousness with an upgraded quality of the leather used for the seats, embossed headrests, ‘figured ebony veneer,’ and Jaguar’s latest infotainment system, called InControl Touch Pro.

The XJ’s driving aids have been updated with a new electrical power steering system and the “All Surface Progress Control” technology, which improves traction at low speeds on slippery surfaces and is an alternative to the four-wheel drive systems offered by Audi and BMW.

The 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine has also been upgraded to produce 296bhp whilst emitting 149g/km of CO2, whereas the supercharged 3.0-litre V6 and 5.0-litre V8 petrol engines remain unchanged.

The new XJ, which is considered to be a rival to Mercedes S Class and forthcoming new versions of the BMW 7-series and Audi A8, goes on sale this autumn. Prices start from £58,690 for the entry level XJ 3.0 V6 Luxury, whereas the new R-Sport trim level costs from £71,625. The newly introduced top of the range Autobiography trim level costs from £80,250 and is available only in long-wheelbase guise.
