An elegant and bold sporting profile enhanced by distinctive design features.
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
A panoramic, heat-reflective glass roof extends to the full width of the car and sweeps as far back as the rear seat area. It filters UV rays and floods the interior with natural light making it airy, enviably spacious and, due to effective tinting, private.
The rear screen appears to wrap seamlessly around the car and creates a floating roofline, emphasising the long, low and wide aspect of XJ and its breath-taking profile.
BI-FUNCTION HID XENON HEADLAMPS
Bi-function HID Xenon headlamps operate automatically when it starts to get dark. The headlamp wipers are set flush into the front bumper so they do not disrupt the XJ’s elegant lines. In addition, the headlamps react to speed and steering, to cast a deeper beam on corners, and provide extra light for low-speed manoeuvres, such as parking. An intelligent high beam feature selects low beam when it detects oncoming vehicles and returns to full beam when the traffic has passed.
REAR PARKING AID WITH VISUAL INDICATOR
Ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper detect objects up to 1.8m away and the driver receives an audible warning. At the same time, the screen in the centre console shows where the object is in relation to the car.
As optional extras, the XJ can be fitted with similar sensors for the front of the car and a rear-facing camera, which sends pictures of what is behind the car to the screen and provides steering guidance to help the driver reverse into a space.
DISTINCTIVE REAR LIGHTS
Signature cat's claw rear LED light clusters follow the contours of the boot down toward the bumper, giving the impression that XJ looks ready to pounce.
ADJUSTABLE BOOT LID
The electronic boot lid is opened with a single press on the remote key, or by using a switch either inside the car or on the bumper. There is another switch inside the lid for closing it. In addition, the lid can be set to open to a particular height.
Chrome power vents are set into each wing, behind the front wheel. Designed to allow heat out of the engine bay, they also have a decorative appeal and feature a sculpted ‘ingot’ with the Jaguar name. A ‘SUPERCHARGED’ motif is also included on the XJ Portfolio powered by Jaguar’s V8 470PS supercharged engine, while the Supersport features a ‘SUPERSPORT’ motif and the XJ Ultimate features an exclusive 'XJ Ultimate' motif.
There is a choice of ten designs for the XJ’s alloy wheels, which are available in 18", 19" or 20". Wider wheels and tyres are fitted at the rear, to optimise grip and accentuate the car’s forward dynamic.
