What is it?

As well as new leather trim, the XJ also comes with Jaguar's InControl Touch Pro infotainment system.
What engines can I choose from?
Jaguar has upgraded the XJ's staple 3.0-litre V6 engine, so that it now produces 296bhp, but also offers lower CO2 emissions than the current model, at 149g/km.
Elsewhere, the XJ's 5.0-litre V8 and 225bhp V6 engine options remain unchanged.
