Jaguar held nothing back when they redesigned the Jaguar XJL Portfolio. Intuitive controls, high quality materials, stylish and innovative design and strong performance come together in the sedan to give new life to a tried and true brand. This was nothing short of pivotal for the car that had deteriorated in popularity among those looking at high end vehicles. In fact, the Portfolio makes a point to bypass the competition in every way imaginable and leave the owner ready to see what more the car can accomplish.

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

When it comes to cars in this class, appearance is everything. People do not buy Jaguars simply for the abilities. The name itself means something special. That is why expectations are high when it comes to the outer styling of the Jaguar XJL Portfolio. Fortunately, the vehicle can meet those expectations and ensure that every owner is more than satisfied. The right material combination outside the car also enhances the performance that it already has.

There were no holds barred on the inside of the Jaguar XJL Portfolio either. The company knew that buyers would expect the top notch quality that Jaguar is known for combined with a look that set the vehicle apart. That is exactly what was achieved with the blend of leather and wood throughout the cabin and the addition of controls and features that are above par. With its longer body line the XJL allows for more space in the rear seat for passengers. The cargo space is not the highest in the class, but generally passengers will not mind as they find comfort and quiet in the cabin.

It is when the Jaguar XJL Portfolio tackles the roads that it makes the biggest impression. That is not achieved simply from the heads turning along the way. In fact the powerful engine and strong performance that make it one of the top choices in luxury sedans. Surprisingly agile considering its size, the Portfolio maneuvers the roadways with ease. Less road noise means a more comfortable ride and precise handling ensure that the driver is able to enjoy the cruise as well.

Looking under the hood of the Jaguar XJL Portfolio will show buyers why it is such a strong contender on the highway. It comes with a 5.0 liter 385 horsepower V8 that pushes it along at more than fair speeds. Each car also comes with a six speed automatic and rear wheel drive. It only takes this vehicle about five and a half seconds to hit sixty and the fuel economy is not bad considering. Measuring around 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, it certainly does better than some of the other options available.
