LONDON: Jaguar has revealed the latest XJ, its all-aluminium luxury saloon, featuring a larger, more upright grille and sculpted chrome blades in the outboard air intakes.

A new R-Sport and top-of-the-range Autobiography models will join the line-up alongside XJ Luxury, Premium Luxury, Portfolio and XJR.

The full LED headlights in the XJ highlight the “quad lamp” design feature that Jaguar sporting sedans have made their own. They are further enhanced with active front steer and static bend lamp functions, and auto high beam assist.

Twin ‘J-Blade’ daytime running lights are a unique feature to XJ; the white light instantly changes to orange when the direction indicator is operated.

The LED rear lights feature a new J-signature tail and position light graphic, in a move to make the XJ look even more distinctive. The rear bumper now features a gloss black valance and a slender chrome insert. New LED taillights and oval exhaust finishers complete the look.

The XJ’s interior design has been taken to the next level. So luxurious has it become that the outgoing Portfolio trim is now used for the Premium Luxury model. The new Portfolio gains quilted soft-grain leather seats with diamond stitching and embossed headrests, and figured ebony veneer.

The Autobiography model, new to XJ in the 2016 model year and available only with the long-wheelbase body, can be identified on the outside by chrome front bumper air intakes and 20″ Maroa wheels.

Inside, there’s a unique Autobiography Intaglio, quilted semi-aniline leather seats with contrasting stitching, a leather headliner, rich oak inlay veneer, and illuminated stainless steel treadplates, air vents and boot finisher.  Rear seat occupancy is provided by individual seats with seat back movement and massage function, and a rear seat entertainment system with two folding 10.2″ HD screens.

Following other Jaguar models, the XJ gains an R-Sport model with new side sills, three-piece front splitter, side power vents and a rear spoiler. A gloss black finish enhances the grille mesh, rear valance and the window finishers. Wheels are 20″ Mataivia. The interior gains sports seats, R-Sport steering wheel and treadplates, Jet headliner and piano black trim or carbon fibre.

The powertrain range will consist of: 300PS 3.0-litre V6 diesel automatic; 340PS 3.0-litre V6 petrol automatic; 510 and 550PS 5.0-litre V8 petrol automatic.

Alongside the F-TYPE sports car and all-new XF saloon, the XJ is made at Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich plant near Birmingham.
