Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
There’s plenty of room in the front of the XJ for a couple of large adults. The car has a wide interior, so there’s no danger of banging elbows or rubbing shoulders. There’s also a centre armrest that has plenty of room for oddment storage.
Door pockets are a decent size, but not so large that they can take a big bottle of water. At least the glovebox is a decent size and the cupholders can accept a variety of cup sizes.
Seat folding and flexibility
Like the driver’s seat, the front passenger seat is also electrically adjustable in 14 way, even on the two lowest trim levels. Moving up to the higher-spec models gets you 18-way adjustable seats.
It may be a saloon but the XJ’s rear bench seats can fold, increasing the car’s load capacity. This function isn’t available on versions with individual rear seats.
It’s possible to specify an optional ski flap to enable you to load long objects without having to fold the rear seats. Electric rear seats that can recline for more comfortable travel are also available.
