    Performance-focused parts include the active diff control, double-wishbone suspension and JaguarDrive control with sports mode that adds steering resistance. Steering gets relatively quick in sport and race modes, but still, I bet the brakes would be working hard after a few laps at the track. Rear seat space has never been a Jaguar XJ strong suit, and this remains the case, with headroom average at best, and outward visibility hurt by the large C-pillars. Complementing the improved InControl technology is a standard watt premium audio system that boasts 20 Surround Sound speakers, satellite radio, a DVD player, and an auxiliary audio input. All Jaguar XJs have the mandatory number of airbags and stability control as well as a good many of the most modern in-car safety features.

    Jaguar XJR Review | CarAdvice

    The Jaguar XJ is the British automaker's flagship sedan, and it represents a new direction from the nameplate's storied history. Despite being the luxury brand's largest offering, the use of aluminum in both the XJ's body and underlying structure keep it relatively lightweight and nimble.

    Powerful engine options and lighter weight mean a smaller, sportier feel. For , the XJ's exterior carries over from mostly unchanged. The bold grille is more upright and even larger than last year and gets a new wire mesh pattern. The drop-dead gorgeous roofline, sail-away rear pillar, and runway-model sensibilities definitely remain. Inside, the InControl infotainment system governs all the secondary controls. Finally, electric power steering is new, on rear-drive XJs.

    Styling changes are minimal, and probably are meant to prepare drivers for an all-new XJ in the works. The XJ's polarizing rear-end styling is improved a bit with restyled tail lamps. Depending on the beholder, the tucked-in look can still seem either understyled or delightfully different. XJL Portfolio and XJL Supercharged customers models get quilted leather interiors for , but all models retain the bounteous interior brightwork we still wish could be toned down a bit.

    Base level XJs get a horsepower, supercharged 3. Both short- and long-wheelbase Vpowered XJs can be outfitted with all-wheel drive, which should please buyers who routinely deal with inclement weather. But Jaguar is quick to point out the all-wheel-drive system is not a performance enhancer.

    More power-hungry buyers can choose rear-drive versions with either of two strengths of supercharged 5. Again, these are both available with a short or an extended wheelbase. The quickest of the bunch, the XJR, hits 60 in a thrilling 4. The XJR also benefits from a stiffer suspension, a front aero splitter, a subtle rear spoiler, and various interior upgrades.

    Throughout the model line, the engines are mated to 8-speed automatics, and shift quality is quick and smooth save for too much downshift delay in Drive , with a more performance-oriented shift program in "S" mode as well as a Dynamic mode that provides sharper shifts and some rev-matching along with other important changes to the adaptive damping system and stability control.

    Behind the wheel, the XJ feels almost shockingly lean and light, which makes sense since compared to German luxury flagships it weighs several hundred pounds less. The all-aluminum structure builds in a deft handling edge, and with this generation, the almost mythical ride isolation of Jaguars is history, replaced by an athletic, taut feel. Factor in the adaptive damping system, however, and the electronics manage to filter out minor road imperfections without spoiling any of the fun. Huge ventilated disc brakes with brake drying and good pedal feel match the XJ's crispness, and Z-rated tires of up to 20 inches stick tenaciously.

    The XJ's sporty feel is even more enhanced by its physically close interior. Firm, flat seats are multi-adjustable, ventilated and heated, but head and leg room are less than models.

    Back seat passengers make do with an even tighter situation. To the sides of the center console, knee room is cramped, but forward leg room is plentiful. The sloping back window encroaches on headroom enough that it could turn off some potential buyers. All the standard safety equipment is in place including six airbags, anti-lock brakes, and traction and stability control.
