Jaguar's rejuvenation continues with this improved version of the company's flagship XJ luxury saloon. Jonathan Crouch drives it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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'.
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.
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.
Jaguar's XJ is state of the art when it comes to luxury saloons. June Neary tries it
Technological master classes though they invariably are, some luxury saloons do come across as being a bit soulless. If I was going to spend £60,000 on a car like this, which is about as likely as Bill Gates spending 50 pence on one, I'd want something with character and a sense of occasion that I could drink in every time I opened the door. There are models that deliver on this count, of course, but they tend to occupy an even loftier price band. If any car can deliver the goods for vaguely sensible money, I'd bet on Jaguar's XJ. I loved the previous generation XJ, but despite my strong traditionalist tendencies, I did recognise that it looked a bit old hat next to fiercely modern rivals. The latest car could never be accused of that. Breaking away from the big Jaguar mould, it has a fresh design that still manages to retain that classic Jaguar feel. That's actually the essence of what they've tried to do with this car: mix the old and the new in an elegantly seamless way.
Older Jags with their wood and leather overload can seem stuffy by today's standards but the XJ updated the classic themes. The dark cabin on our test car sparkles with glints of chrome and there's a high-technology feel to the controls and the instruments which are actually digitally projected onto a screen in front of the driver. The classic natural materials are still in evidence, however, and overall I'd say the designers have done a fine job. This feels like the modern Jaguar. Many XJ owners will be reclining in the rear while an employee does the driving and it's a fine place to sit out a long journey. Vast legroom and plentiful headroom are laid on, while the fixtures and fittings have a real air of quality about them. Even the entry-level cars come generously equipped with twin sunroofs, leather trim, dual-zone climate control, electric front seat adjustment and a touch-screen control interface. The trademark Jaguar drive selector is also included on all models. This replaces a conventional gear stick and takes the form of a large rotary dial that rises out of the centre console when you turn the XJ on.
At the top of the XJ range are normally aspirated and supercharged versions of the Jaguar 5.0-litre V8, with 380bhp and 464bhp respectively. Plus Jaguar is also offering an XJ Supersport model with the supercharged engine upgraded to 503bhp. The diesel will inevitably be the most popular, however, and it's a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 with 271bhp. That's the model I tried. Even with this entry-level engine, there's a powerful surge of acceleration if you're bold with the throttle but what's most impressive is the refinement. The engine is barely audible at low speeds and there's only a slight grumble from the exhausts when you open it up fully. Wind and road noise are extremely well suppressed. The emphasis of the XJ is on comfort but it can hustle along and proves surprisingly nimble. The sharp steering is particularly helpful, making you forget you're piloting a five-metre luxury saloon.
There are short and long wheelbase versions of the XJ available, while trim levels run from Luxury to Premium Luxury and Portfolio, with the Supersport model at the top of the range. The car is priced to match up against rivals like the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes S Class and Audi A8, so competition is fierce but the Jaguar appears to be well up to the task.
This is my kind of luxury car, traditional in some regards but with advanced technology bubbling under the surface. Trying to split the XJ from its rivals on performance, styling and quality isn't easy because all the cars at this level are superbly engineered but for my money, this Jaguar has a big edge over the competition. It's an edge I'd call a 'sense of occasion' and if you try this car, you'll see what I mean.
