Jaguar XJ Overview

The capable, luxurious XJ sports sedan comes in both regular and long-wheelbase form. Powered by a refined 5.0-liter V8, the big XJ is quiet, very quick, and handles with agility. The ride is supple and steady. The plush interior is crafted with genuine wood trim, copious amounts of leather, and abundant chrome details. But some controls are confusing. The complex touch screen for the climate, audio, and navigation systems responds slowly. Our tested long-wheelbase XJL has a sumptuous backseat, but the low roofline impedes head room and access, and the trunk is small. A supercharged V6 and all-wheel drive are available as well.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
