One of the most beautiful cars on the road

by Sbourne from Gig Harbor, WA on Sat Oct 21 2017

I have owned three of these - having just purchased a 17 following my purchases of new XJL models in 2010 and 2012. Incredible value for the money. Very sleek and comfortable with every possible safety and convenience feature you could want.

Superb

by Gurtej from Sacramento on Thu Mar 15 2018

After driving the Pilot, Ridgeline, Highlander, Santa Fe, and several others, the Sorento EX V6 was by far the best value for my money. It is solidly built, quiet, and smooth

Our Take on the 2017 Jaguar XJ

The verdict:

The 2016 Jaguar XJ is stylish, dynamic and an unexpected value in its class, especially considering Jaguar’s excellent warranty. But the sedan’s tendency for glitches might put that warranty to good use.

Versus the competition:

The XJ prioritizes performance over isolation, a sure turnoff for anyone who prefers the coddling comforts of certain top-shelf sedans. It lacks the technological opulence that others boast, too — but before Jaguar makes that leap, it needs to iron out a few bugs with its existing tech.

Editor's note: This review was written in August 2016 about the 2016 Jaguar XJ, but little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what's new for 2017, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years. 

The XJ comes in regular or extended wheelbases with rear- or all-wheel drive, which you can compare here. Jaguar tweaked the XJ’s styling and updated its multimedia system for 2016; compare it with the 2015 XJ here. Engines range from a supercharged V-6 to two supercharged V-8s. We drove an extended-length XJ with the lesser of the V-8s. (That’s a comparative adjective only; this sedan still hauls.)
