Those who want something modern, luxurious and high performing will find their needs met easily with the Jaguar XJ Sedan. In the past the XJ was more traditional in styling and that led to a decrease in appeal for the sedan. Recently, the company has transformed the tried and true vehicle into a current and astonishing piece of machinery. From the stylish exterior to the high powered engine, there is little that one will find about the XJ that they do not like. Though it is among some of the top names on the market, the XJ passes them all in a landslide.

ReviewitOnline Ratings are based on a number of factors including reputation, appearance, model age, engine & other comparative aspects.

Outside of the XJ is a look that rivals and surpasses even the best in the class. Many of the cars in the luxury class that the Jaguar XJ Sedan belongs in will impress, but they still lack in the more current curb appeal that buyers want. The redesign of the XJ took that into consideration and the makers crafted a vehicle modern enough to compete with virtually anything. In that design they included high quality materials that affect not only the look but the performance as well.

Like any other Jaguar, the interior of the Jaguar XJ Sedan skips nothing in elegance and class. It combines the best of appearance with the highest quality of style and materials to give people something to really talk about. Leather and wood throughout the cabin add to its exquisite style and detail. The room in the XJ will depend on which model is chosen. The standard XJ model will be a bit more cramped in the back than you might have hoped for. Cargo space is nothing spectacular, but it often isn't in a sedan of this caliber. Simply put, the interior will please buyers immensely even if it lacks a few features that other cars in the class offer.

The best part of the Jaguar XJ Sedan will be found traveling the roadways. It does not matter if the vehicle is used for the daily grind in the city or out on the open highway it will surely please. It is easy to maneuver and features probably the best steering and handling in the class. Upgrading to a bigger engine will take the power already felt in this vehicle and enhance it to increase acceleration and overall contentment on the road.

Like most Jags, the Jaguar XJ Sedan has a lot to offer underneath the hood. It boasts a 5.0 liter 385 horsepower engine that helps increase its appeal on the roadway. Alongside the six speed automatic transmission, this engine offers enough get up and go to please the average driver. Those that want even more power can choose a trim that offers a larger engine. Rear wheel drive comes standard on this car and it can get up to sixty in less than five and a half seconds. Fuel economy is not the greatest, but it is decent at 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
