Jaguar has updated the 2014 Jaguar XJ with enhanced luxury features, comfort and in-car technology. The carmaker’s luxury sedan is offered with a choice of 202kW/600Nm 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel and 250kW/450Nm supercharged petrol engines, and two 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engines – 375kW/625Nm on the XJ, and 404kW/680 on the XJR.
All variants are matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The 14MY update is underlined by the palette of materials used on the interior. This includes soft grain and semi-aniline leather, and a wide choice of veneers including Piano Black, Carbon Fibre, Gloss Burr Walnut and Satin Rosewood.
The long-wheelbase models, which doesn’t come with a price premium over the standard wheelbase models, now feature enhanced rear cabin luxury features which includes ‘airline’ style reclining seats with massage function, increased headroom, optional fold-out business tables and a specially re-tuned rear suspension setup to enhance rear seat ride comfort.
Rear seat passengers on the XJ can also be treated to an optional Rear Seat Entertainment package featuring two hi-resolution touch screens, and optional premium Meridian Reference Audio System with Conversation Assist.
