Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The V6 engine in the XJ R-Sport and Portfolio is smoothly efficient, and performance is almost as brisk as that of the more costly 470-horsepower Supercharged V8. Generous sound insulation tones down any harsh vibrations emanating from the V6.

Higher-performance V8 models are more spirited, tautly athletic, but a moderate penalty is paid in ride quality. In V8 models, an active rear differential helps traction. XJR editions get a stiffer suspension, as well as some aerodynamic body elements.

Controlled by a rotary knob rather than a lever, Jaguar’s 8-speed automatic shifts promptly and smoothly. Dialing Sport mode permits the transmission to retain gears longer and keep engine speed higher. Dynamic mode controls suspension and throttle activity.

Overall, the XJ operates quite predictably and simply. Yielding a smooth ride most of the time, it exudes refinement. Yet, Jaguar’s big sedan can become more raucous when such behavior seems appropriate, especially the XJR. Lightweight construction helps the XJ edge ahead of rivals, in terms of masterful handling.

Adaptive damping helps the XJ ease through minor pavement trouble spots without impairing the pleasure of the ride. Ventilated disc brakes provide a good pedal feel, and include brake drying.

All-wheel drive helps V6 sedans maintain sure-footed traction on wet or icy pavement. Snow mode gives the system a bias toward front wheels, while starting off in second gear.

V6 models manage respectable fuel economy compared to full-size rivals, EPA-rated at 18/27 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers each figure by 1 mpg. An XJ with V8 power is EPA-rated at 15/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined. Automatic start/stop operation is barely noticeable.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Not many sedans come close to matching, much less exceeding, the stunningly shaped XJ body, highlighted by blacked-out pillars that magnify the sense of expansive glass. Still a visual sensation after eight seasons in its current form, the XJ earned a fresh front end for the 2015 model year. Few would deny that the modern-day XJ has aged mighty well.

Classy from stem to stern, the XJ has spurred design details of the company’s smaller, more recent models. Big headlights flank the bold wire-mesh grille. Fenders complement the low roofline, suggesting French designs of the past.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

The lavishly appointed XJ is immersed in genuine wood veneers, supple, semi-aniline leather, and bountiful chrome.

Forming a wide arc, the dashboard expertly blends wooden panels and leather. Actual buttons supplement the video screen, which can sometimes be slow to react. In addition to controlling audio and climate, as well as navigation functions, the 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen can show performance driving modes. Naturally, fit and finish rank as superior.

For such a large car, the back seats are relatively snug, with a headroom shortage resulting from the XJ’s shapely roofline. Three passengers in the back won’t fit so easily, two is better. Rear-seat legroom is fine; and it’s significantly better in long-wheelbase versions, which add nearly 5 inches of space.

With a capacity of 18.4 cubic feet, the trunk can hold plenty of cargo.


New Car Test Drive

The Jaguar XJ delivers style, presence and heritage. Passengers are coddled in supreme luxury, in a cabin that’s almost as visually striking as the body. Add energetic performance and engaging handling, and despite its price, the long-lived XJ still proves difficult to resist.
