Jaguar Brings Facelift Into XJ range, Introduces New Top Version
|   Saturday, July 04, 2015
The current Jaguar XJ flagship model received a new generation in the distant year 2009. Unlike the German rivals, which update their top models every 7-8 years, the British are a bit slower, so instead of preparing for us for a replacement for the current Jaguar model, those from the company preferred updating the current XJ through a slightly modified look, a number of improvements to the interior and revised engines.

The British model boasts a larger front grille and at a different angle, with chrome ventilation slots and sculpted blades, and full LED optical blocks, with revised graphics for the interior.
The LED taillights are also redesigned, now with a stronger signature in the form of the letter "J", and the back is complemented by the oval exhausts. With the 2016 generation Jaguar introduced a new steering system in the XJ range which promises to help reduce fuel consumption and provide a better response.

The XJ range from Jaguar represents the top model available in the British manufacturer's offer and is extended to the 2016 generation through the R-Sport model and an Autobiography variant. The R-Sport version has a front splitter in three pieces, special side sills, ventilation slots on the sides and dedicated rear spoiler.

The steering is now electrically assisted, which provides a fuel saving of 3 percent. Moreover, the Britons are confident thanks to the new electric steering assist that the XJ facelift is the most dynamic model in its segment and almost equal in terms of dynamics to the XE and F-TYPE models. The engine range consists of the 3.0-liter V6 supercharged petrol unit (with 340 hp), the 3.0-liter V6 diesel unit that now develops 300 hp and 700 Nm of torque (+25 hp and 100 Nm and is 6 percent greener) and the enormous 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged unit that develops 510 hp or 550 hp, on the XJ R-sport version.

On the inside the British have prepared high-quality leather, black trim and upholstery in the same color as the sport seats, R-Sport plaques and other ornaments of this type, seats with massage function and an infotainment system dedicated to the rear passengers, which operates through two screens of 10.2 inches. At the front, the passengers will benefit from the multimedia InControl system, released on the XE sedan.

The top variant of the XJ offer is called Autobiography and is only available in the long wheelbase version. It has 20-inch "MAROA"alloy wheels and enjoys chrome ventilation slots on the front bumper. The other special features to be found are on the inside, as a special upholstery which has a stitch in a contrasting color with a dedicated model. The board has Steja rotary cut veneer inserts, adjustable individual rear seats with massage function and an entertainment system for the rear seats, which include HD monitors with the aforementioned 10.2 inches wide.

Also on the inside we have changes to the digital dashboard, measuring 12.3 inches, which features a higher quality graphical representation, and a navigation system map display on the entire display surface. Also, the multimedia system gets a new display in the style of recent models and it can connect with iOS and Android devices via WiFi. Optionally, the Meridian audio system with 1300 Watts is offered.
The new Jaguar XJ facelift will be launched on the market in the fall of 2015.
