The all-aluminium XJ is better to drive than many of its rivals, with agile handling and accurate steering that make it easy to place on the road.
The 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine is smooth and delivers effortless performance; the car will do 0-62mph in just 6.0 seconds and has a claimed average of 44.8mpg.
The XJ is predicted to have a better resale value than rivals from Audi and Mercedes. Jaguar also bests the competition in terms of ownership experience, being voted top manufacturer in our 2014 What Car JD Power Survey.
If comfort is your top priority, the XJ is not a match for the Mercedes S-Class; it's ride is firmer and there's more road noise, especially at motorway speeds.
Although the long-wheelbase version provides plenty of rear legroom, headroom is limited. This, combined with the low-set rear seat, means it’s not as pleasant to travel in the back of as either the Audi A8 or the Mercedes. Interior quality is not quite a match for the two German cars' either.
Should I add any options?
All XJ comes well equipped, and in Premium Luxury trim this includes dual-zone climate control, twin glass sunroofs, engine stop-start, an eight-inch colour touch-screen with sat-nav, xenon headlights and DAB radio.
Options to consider include adaptive cruise control with emergency brake assist, premium rear seat package that includes twin 10.2-inch rear screens, four-zone climate control, and individual electric rear seats with ventilation and massage functions.
