Jaguar XJ L
Jaguar XJ L Review
The XJ L is the flagship sedan from the Tata-owned British marque - Jaguar. The luxury sedan was launched in India in 2012, three years after its global debut and has received regular upgrades with the new model years. The MY2016 XJ L is another step ahead with the Indian car now being at par with the global one and this time the changes are not only under the skin.
Jaguar, the British automaker, has always been an epitome of stunning design and intuitive technology. Not much has changed in the way the Jaguar looks except for the new design of the Daytime Running Lamps embedded in the new intelligent LED headlamps. The car's fascia has a wide and bold profile with deep set mesh grille that gets the Jaguar emblem. This is surrounded by Intelligent High Beam Xenon headlamps. The tail lamps are LED lamps designed to flow along the lines of the boot down the rear wings.
Anyone who enters the cabin is greeted with the glove-soft leather, warm veneers and cool chrome. There is enough space inside for five individuals providing them with ample headroom and legroom and the panoramic glass roof. Coming to the instrumentation, the 12.3-inch high-definition glass screen set behind the steering wheel gets a Virtual Instrument display. Controls for the audio system, telephone and climate control are available at a single finger touch. It boasts of a class-leading 1200W Bowers and Wilkins surround sound system.
The XJL has all the features that one could ever imagine in a luxury sedan. It comes with an automatic four-zone climate control, cruise control with Automatic Speed Limiter (ASL) and a three-spoke leather steering column. Steering position is electrically adjustable for height and reach with entry and exit tilt-away. Other highlights are the Jaguar Smart Key System with keyless entry and start, door puddle lamps, Phosphor Blue Halo Illumination and Interior Mood Lighting, rain sensing windscreen wipers and heated windscreen and rear window.
The Jaguar XJL is packed with safety features like airbags for the driver and front passenger, curtain side airbags, anti-whiplash technology and seatbelt reminder for front and rear seats. It is also equipped with rear child safety locks and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH). There are other features that enhance the safety quotient of this car such as Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with TRAC DSC mode and Electric Parking Brake (EPB).
Engine and Gearbox
The 2016 Jaguar XJL is available in two petrol engine variants and one diesel engine variant. The diesel fuelled 3.0-litre V6 engine generates 296bhp of power and 700Nm of torque while the 2.0-litre turbocharged inline four cylinder petrol engine churns out 237bhp of power and 340Nm of torque. There is also a supercharged version with the 5.0-litre petrol V8 mill that churns out 470bhp of power and 642Nm of torque.
In all the variants, the engine is mated to an automatic transmission. This automatic transmission features Jaguar's trademark lightning quick Sequential Shift System. The Jaguar XJL can accelerate from 0 to 100kmph within a span of 4.9 to 6.4 seconds. The top-speed of XJ is limited to 250kmh.
The XJL is the flagship model from Jaguar and the automaker has left no stone unturned to provide a consumer with the perfect combination of comfort and driving pleasure. The car rivals the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and the Audi A8L in the Indian market.
