The new Jaguar XJ is the epitome of fluid, contemporary automotive style. The elongated teardrop shape of the side windows establishes the car’s silhouette and lies at the heart of its flowing design. And the new Jaguar XJ doesn’t just look streamlined: it shares a drag coefficient of 0.29 with the Jaguar XF saloon, making them the most aerodynamic Jaguars ever.
It offers the choice of four powerful and refined engines, which use the latest powertrain technology to deliver an outstanding combination of performance and class-leading efficiency. The supremely powerful supercharged 510PS 5.0-litre AJ-V8 Gen III will head the line-up, with a 0-60mph time of 4.7 secs (0-100kph in 4.9 secs).
The new XJ was designed by Ian Callum and is a radical change from the previous body style, which was little changed for 40 years. The new car’s look might tweak Jaguar purists, but the lines are modern. In some respects, it resembles the XF. The XJ will be Jaguar’s flagship sedan, and the first launch under new owners Tata Motors. The new XJ features some impressive tech, its most over-the-top feature being a virtual instrument cluster.
