The charismatic cat

Jaguar gives their customer something that is sought after in today’s day and age- pure excellence and exclusivity. With its styling, it manages to draw the eyes of onlookers and with its elegant character you will captivate the attention. The Jaguar XJ is a perfect blend of fineness and sportiness with state of the art technologies and high quality materials.

The Concept

Let’s not mess around, the Jaguar XJ is a vehicle not for the faint of hearted. Whether you enjoy envious gazes with elegant swaggering or enjoy a bit of thirsty performance now and again, the XJ can deliver on both. It’s swift, sexy and sophisticated and that makes it an ideal sedan for the executive woman, in my opinion.

The Look

Oozing with graceful charm, the front of the Jaguar XJ is enhanced with an upright mesh grille which is highlighted by the iconic Double J headlights. The XJ benefits from energy-efficient LED in the front and rear while the headlights also have an automatic feature and Daytime Running. Chrome rimmed windows do wonders to emphasize the shapely figure of this stunner and with a gorgeous set of 18-inch wheels, it’s only promoted. I like the low, wide stance of the vehicle, it reminds me of Jaguar, in stance and ready to pounce its prey with a powerful. To finish it off, the full rear is accented by twin oval Chrome exhaust finishers.

The Feel

You certainly feel like a celebrity or executive when sitting in the XJ. This is due to luxurious materials and ambient lighting. The Phosphor Blue halo illumination and Interior Mood Lighting combined with typical Jaguar design cues makes for an unmistakable and unmatched feel. When the champagne decides to appear or its time for a dramatic wave when driving away, the XJ caters with a solar attenuating panoramic glass roof with one-touch open/close front section and fixed rear section. Expensive luggage and carry on’s can be stored in the 479–litre boot and loading them will be effortless thanks to a power open/close load space with adjustable opening. I must admit that leg room in the rear is something to take into consideration as it’s a bit cramped considering the vehicle’s size but further, I have no problems with the cabin, in fact, I love it!

Passengers will fall in love with the soft bond grain leather seats- they’re cushy, envelope you in excellence and are heated as well! For the driver, there is a soft grain leather clad steering wheel (with an electric column adjustment and entry and exit tilt-away) and a 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display. Overall, Jaguar still kept to its luxurious roots, something traditionalists will appreciate, but I must say I am a big fan of the small adjustments and advancement that they have made to the cabin, its stylish and suiting.

The Features

The 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system is equipped with an Enhanced Sound System, Bluetooth Connectivity, Pro Services and Wi-Fi Hotspot, lnControl Apps, Navigation Pro and Voice Control. Electric front and rear windows with one-touch open/close, Cruise Control, dual zone Climate Control, an Electric Parking Brake with Drive Away Release and an all-round Parking Aid with a touchscreen visual indicator and rear camera are all to be found in the XJ to pay tribute to the brand’s luxurious identity by providing the passengers with a top notch experience.

All Surface Progress Control, Variable Ratio Power Assisted Steering, Adaptive Dynamics, Automatic Speed Limiter, Emergency Brake Assist, Driver Condition Monitor, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist are listed for additional assistance when driving. Furthermore, there is also airbags in the front and side with side curtain, Whiplash Protection System and Pedestrian Contact Sensing and to arm this cat from burglars, there is also Jaguar Smart Key System, an Alarm and Engine Immobiliser, a Protect system and Remote Premium. It’s clear that Jaguar goes the extra mile to ensure that their clients will be thoroughly satisfied and with the abundance of features found in the vehicle I have no doubt in my mind that they will achieve that.

The Drive

Armed with a punchy 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged diesel engine, the XJ is sure to perform and it does exactly just that with impressive outputs such as 221kW of power and a notable 700Nm of torque. It has a 7-litre per 100km fuel consumption which is excellent. The XJ isn’t just any other sedan so I would think its fuel economy is reasonable as well as understandable. With an 8 speed automatic transmission, you are assured of smooth, even driving and you will also benefit from JaguarDrive Control that allows you to alter driving with Dynamic, Normal and Winter modes.

In a world full of red, hot speed, sheer strength and extremely zippy, it’s refreshing to find a vehicle that is more relaxed and what I like to call a smooth operator with its precise handling and graceful attitude. Although not as much designed for the purpose of chasing speeds but rather cruising effortlessly, the XJ delivers more than what’s asked for and put a tyre to the gravel rather impressively but with utmost poise obviously. In my opinion, the Jaguar XJ is a terrific vehicle and anyone who decides to purchase one will not be disappointed.
