What You Will Like

The Jaguar XJ has always been a premium symbol of ultimate automotive luxury. Prices start at under $75,000, but that buys a smooth, powerful drivetrain as well as a specific kind of comfort and elegant, understated style. All of which is emblematic of the XJ in a way not found in a BMW, Audi or Cadillac.

What's New For 2016

The Jaguar XJ gets a minor redesign for 2016. The front fascia has been updated and now features full LED headlights and fancier daytime running lights. Inside, a new infotainment system has been introduced, dubbed InControl Touch Pro. It offers Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities and is harnessed to a 17-speaker 825-watt Meridian sound system. The instrument cluster of the XJ has also been redesigned, with more customization options and a more prominent display for the navigation system.

  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Introduction

The Jaguar XJ is the brand’s flagship four-door luxury sedan. With an aluminum body and chassis parts, the XJ is light and nimble for its size, and it gets good fuel mileage, with an EPA-estimated 27 mpg Highway. There are standard and long wheelbase models, in rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

The standard engine is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 making 340 horsepower, able to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. We have found that engine to be plenty fast.

Also available: a pair of supercharged 5.0-liter V8s. One makes 470 horsepower, while the one in the XJR makes 550 horsepower; they can accelerate from 0-60 in 4.9 and 4.7 seconds, respectively. The XJR gets more performance features, including a firmer suspension, aerodynamic splitter in the front and spoiler in rear, and sporty interior touches.

There is one transmission, a crisp 8-speed automatic that mates well with the supercharged V6 and V8 engines. But it’s the car’s relatively low curb weight that most affects its curb manners. The aluminum body panels are riveted and bonded, bringing the number on the scales down to 4200 pounds, which is several hundred pounds less than the Jaguar’s German competitors.

The Jaguar XJ offers good comfort and a plush interior with supple leather and real wood veneer trim, although the cabin is tight and too shiny for our tastes. It features heated front and rear seats, ventilated and massaging front seats, and ventilated rear seats. Jaguar’s service plan pays for everything but tires for the first five years or 50,000 miles.

The 2016 XJ gets subtle design tweaks. The 2016 Jaguar XJ grille is bolder, larger, straighter and has a new mesh pattern. Adaptive LED headlamps are standard, as is electric power steering on rear-wheel-drive models, and the taillights are restyled. Also new for 2016 is Jaguar’s infotainment system called InControl Touch Pro, with its eight-inch touch screen and navigation that can hook up with a smartphone. The XJL Portfolio and Supercharged models get quilted leather to make the interior even more fabulous.

Supplementing six airbags, safety options include adaptive cruise control that alerts to speed limit changes ahead, blind-spot monitoring that also alerts to cars approaching quickly from behind, and back-up alerts. But there are no lane-drifting alerts, head-up displays, or night vision. The Jaguar’s competition from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi offer these things.

Lineup

The 2016 Jaguar XJ comes in base R-Sport and Portfolio trim with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The XJL features a long wheelbase for more rear-seat space. The high-performance XJR is rear-wheel drive, standard wheelbase.

Walkaround

The XJ’s rounded edges give it a tucked-in look that’s delightfully under styled. It’s a modern look that’s appropriate to the aluminum skin. Rhomboid headlights complement the big mesh grille. The roofline is drop-dead gorgeous like a fashion model, and the fenders swell to meet the low roofline. The rear pillars are gloss black and seem to sail away, so the rear glass seems to stretch from fender to fender, a classy effect.

Interior

The interior is slathered in chrome. It’s over the top. Light shines in through the expansive sunroof and glares on the glitzy instrument panel. The chrome is contrasted by piano-black trim that’s high quality but common. The trim seems inconsistent with the wide bands of wood on the doors, and the opulent leather headliner.

There’s not a lot of elbow room, headroom or legroom in the cabin, especially in back under that sloping rear window that’s so beautiful to look at from outside the car. The front seats are firm and flat, ventilated and heated, but the front passengers’ inside knees are squeezed against the center console. At least there’s good front legroom so the legs can straighten.

The XJ makes great strides in interfacing, but might overdo it with dazzle. Dials are all but gone, breaking almost entirely away from the tradition of Jaguar sport. What used to be a driver’s car in the cabin, is now a video game player’s car.

There are a few buttons, but most functions are performed using an eight-inch, high-definition LCD that changes colors; soft red for performance, apparently to remind you or make you feel racy. The screen does climate, audio, and navigation functions. Where there’s a button that does the same thing, the button is faster.

Driving Impressions

The aluminum Jaguar XJ feels exceptionally lean and light, athletic and taut. The handling is deft, and the adaptive damping erases the bumps but not the fun. The ventilated disc brakes are big and the feel of the pedal is confident. The Z-rated tires stick like hot rubber.

We have found the 340-horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V6 the best fit for this car. It’s tractable, responsive and predictable. If you drive on the Autobahn or maybe in Montana or Nevada, then maybe you’d want the V8, either with 470 hp or 550 hp in the XJR, but you would also lose some of the great balance in the handling.

You lose some quickness in the handling with the XJL, but it handles amazingly well for a long-wheelbase sedan.

The ride is kept smooth and pure, on an independent suspension with coil springs in front, and multi links with the electronically adjustable air springs in rear. On supercharged cars, the rear differential is also electronically controlled.

The eight-speed automatic transmission, made by ZF, is tuned to each engine and it shifts quick and smooth, although kickdowns are a bit slow in the Normal mode. There is a Dynamic mode that sharpens the upshifts and matches revs on the downshifts, and a Sport mode that does the same only even more aggressively. These modes also step up the throttle, steering, damping and stability control.

The all-wheel-drive is rear-biased. In Winter mode, from 30 to 50 percent of the torque goes to the front wheels. Jaguar says the system is intended for traction in slippery weather, not cornering with more grip.

Summary

The Jaguar XJ is clearly not a German car. It has lovely lines and understated styling. Its base powertrain with a supercharged V6 and eight-speed automatic is unbeatable, but its cabin is less than roomy, and its instrumentation and trim too glitzy.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
