Used Jaguar XJ Saloon (2010 - 2019) Review

4.5
The XJ is the pinnacle of Jaguar’s ethos of building cars that offer high performance and comfort in equal measures. It’s a world away from its predecessor, both in terms of appearance and driving, yet this is still very much a Jaguar with plenty of delightful styling details and a coupe-like look.

Jaguar XJ Saloon (10-19)
Daring and unique styling both inside and out, supremely refined, available as a long wheelbase, muscular performance, agile handling
Steering lacks some feel, rear headroom could be better

£54,975 - £121,055

The XJ is the pinnacle of Jaguar’s ethos of building cars that offer high performance and comfort in equal measures. It’s a world away from its predecessor, both in terms of appearance and driving, yet this is still very much a Jaguar with plenty of delightful styling details and a coupe-like look. An all-aluminium body ensures a low kerb weight – good for handling – which combined with a superb range of engines, means the XJ delivers stunning performance and useful economy.

The cosseting cabin is a wonderful piece of design too with unique touches that make other luxury alternatives look drab and ordinary. It is also fitted with state-of-the-art technology including a high definition virtual instrument panel. Like most cars of this size, it’s expensive new, but the Jaguar is easily a match for alternatives like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and, whether you’re in the back or behind the wheel, few cars feel as special as the XJ does.

What owners say...

 Space. I have three children aged 15, 13 and 13 and they all fit in the back in comfort. I will shoot myself before I have another people carrier. I have had several Volvo V70's as they are large and...

 Get in, press the start button, point it in the right direction and off you go. Effortless motoring.
