Jaguar announced the launch of a new and upgraded version of their luxury saloon, the XJ. The refreshed 2016 Jaguar XJ comes with new LED lights, a revised front grille, a subtly redesigned front bumper, and a bunch of new comfort and convenience features.
The all-aluminum 2016 Jaguar XJ comes with full LED headlights and unique double J-Blade daytime running lights which gives the car a more purposeful look at the front and set it further apart from the XF and the XE. But that’s the extent of noticeable design modifications you get.
Inside the cabin, the new XJ comes with a redesigned instrument cluster with enhanced customization and a new InControl Touch Pro touch-screen infotainment system with built-in iOS and Android connectivity, available Wi-Fi hotspot and a standard 17-speaker, 825W Meridian Surround Sound audio system.
You get a lot more in terms of features and equipment with the 2016 Jaguar XJ, starting with a suite of advanced driver assistance systems including adaptive cruise control with queue-assist, closing vehicle sensing, reverse traffic detection, 360° surround camera system and semi-automated perpendicular and parallel-parking (RWD Only). Another new feature which is a welcome addition especially in the UK is the All-Surface Progress Control enables enhanced drive-away on low-traction surfaces such as snow and ice.
As for the other notable changes about the 2016 XJ, the Black Pack is standard now on the XJR, the R-Sport trim is enhanced, and XJL Portfolio and XJL Supercharged are distinguished with the introduction of quilted seating surfaces finished with a diamond sewn pattern on the seat center and cushion.
