2019 Jaguar XJ review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Jaguar XJ?

Jaguar’s flagship sedan, the full-size XJ, is made of aluminum and is offered in regular- and long-wheelbase form, the latter with 5 extra inches of rear legroom. The XJ is available with rear- or all-wheel drive and is powered by a 340-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine or a 470-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8. There’s also a high-performance XJR575 that cranks out 575 hp and launches from zero-to-60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. The XJ competes against the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

What’s New on the 2019 Jaguar XJ?

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are now available as part of an optional Smartphone Package. Automatic emergency braking is now standard, and Jaguar’s InControl Touch Pro multimedia system has updated graphics. The navigation system adds voice command capability, too.

To commemorate 50 years of the XJ, there’s a new XJ50 Special Edition available only in long-wheelbase form, but with the supercharged V-6 or V-8. Inside and out, the XJ50 wears unique badging and gets other exclusive cues.

What Features in the 2019 Jaguar XJ Are Most Important?

The XJ offers a wealth of available luxury features, including massaging rear seats, a dual-screen rear entertainment system and power sunshades for the rear side windows. Standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, a driver drowsiness monitor and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert.

Should I Buy the 2019 Jaguar XJ?

Each player in the luxury full-size sedan segment continues to offer a comfortable flavor of its own, with the XJ being more on the sporty end of the spectrum as far as the driving experience is concerned. However, if you're shopping this class, we'd recommend test-driving the S-Class and 7 Series before making your decision.
