2019 Jaguar XJ
Ratings & Reliability
The capable, luxurious XJ has graceful, nimble handling and a supple, steady ride. Its 470-hp V8 engine makes the big sedan very quick, but most versions have the supercharged V6 with all-wheel drive. The plush, quiet interior is crafted with genuine wood trim, copious amounts of leather, and abundant chrome details. But certain controls are confusing. The complex touch screen for the climate, audio, and navigation systems responds slowly and takes some getting used to. Our tested long-wheelbase XJL has a sumptuous backseat, but the low roofline impedes headroom and access, and the trunk is small. An XJR performance version is available. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, and lane keeping assist are standard on all rear-wheel-drive versions.
