2011 Jaguar XJ Sedan XJL Supercharged 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

We bought a used jaguar xjl supercharged in march. We were looking at a range rover, porsche panamera or maserati quattroporte. We decided to test a jaguar xj and this was it. Stiched leather, glossy burl wood and chrome accents cover the cabin. The car is fully loaded and comes with ventilated seats front and rear and massaging seats. The engine is a monster supercharged 5.0L V-8 that makes 470 hp. The instrument cluster is digital and looks like a laptop screen. It is very well lit and is made to resemble real gauges but you can bring up navigation and radio on the screen. The exterior also has no radio sharkfin which contributes to its sexy roofline. Buy it and you won't be disappointed.


Favorite Features

ventilated seats, massaging seats, engine exhaust and growl, elegant airplane style air vents, comfortable and soft leather, sun shades, 20 inch rims, automatic trunk and neat digital cluster.


Suggested Improvements

There are just a few lower quality plasticky pieces in places where you cannot see it nor do you ever touch it however in $100,000+ car when new you would expect a little more. I also would like to see jaguar fill out their line up with a plug in hybrid, a base four cylinder, keep the super v-6 and super v-8s and add a top of the line XJ-12 with a supercharged 12 cylinder to compete with the mercedes s600/s65, bmw 760, audi w12 and bentley flying spur. I would also like to see an update to the navigation and audio system. The car's ride quality is on the sportier harder side and should be more comfort oriented on the L models. I love my car and would buy a newer one in the future.

2011 Jaguar XJ Sedan XJL Supercharged 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I have have had the privlidge of owning many luxury cars. BMW's, Benz, and Jaguars. This car is superior in every way to its predecessors and to its competition. It sets the bar very high for the next generation of luxury performance autos.


Favorite Features

Gorgeous, very comfortable, and a rocket.


Suggested Improvements

I would not change a thing.

2011 Jaguar XJ Sedan 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The 83 XJ6 was stately and stable, the 98 XJ8 had elegance with performance. This 2011 XJ, with the interior upgrade package, has all of the above attributes on steroids. Steering is very quick and precise. Acceleration and braking are awesome. Jaguar now has a car with all the bells and whistles expected at this price point, along with the beautiful styling and brilliant performance expected of Jaguars. This is a world class car.


Favorite Features

Six speed seamless automatic transmission with paddles. Huge, high performance low profile tires. Gorgeous interior with great seats and leather everywhere. A beautiful car.


Suggested Improvements

Lane encrouchment warning should be on this car, given its quick steering.

2011 Jaguar XJ Sedan XJL 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 6A)


Review

We only have 3,000 miles on our SJL but, so far, we are really pleased. Performance is fine. Rear seat legroom is exceptional. With the exception of what appear to be overly wide gaps at fenders, hood, trunk lid, etc. the build quality seems excellent. Just a few minor niggles: The rear cup holders are positioned in a way that makes them virtually unusable. The wood grain on the front doors does not match that across the dash (under the windshield), there is no dead pedal and the electronic responses (start-stop button, for example) is way too slow. Ride is a little harsh. Standard radio is great! Both the transmission and engine are A-OK! And the value, overall, is outstanding.


Favorite Features

Great standard radio. Excellent acceleration. Huge rear seat legroom. Beautiful appearance of both the interior and exterior (with the exception of some overly wide gaps at the fenders, trunk lid, hood, etc.).


Suggested Improvements

Reposition the rear seat cupholders. Speed-up the electronic controls (i.e. eliminate the long delays for the Start/Stop functions). Add a dead pedal. Eliminate the issue of the wood grain trim not matching (i.e. from the front doors to the dashboard portion under the windshield). Make the seat controls more intuitive. (i.e. Mercedes-Like with controls that mimic the shape of the seat back, seat cushion, headrest, etc. The Jag controls require "looking at" them to effect the desired positioning).

2011 Jaguar XJ Sedan Supercharged 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

I have a propensity of hating big cars. Therefore, with some reservation, I leased a XJ super charge last week after the lease expiration of XF Supercharge. (This is my forth Jaguar vehicle). The car is a wonder, it dissipates my dislike for big cars as it actually feels agile and precise in handling (you donít feel the car is big when driving). The power is beyond any description and more than adequate at all levels. My car is in ultimate black with London tan as interior. Just a week, the car has totally won my admiration as well as a lot of compliments from pedestrians at stoplights and strangers at car washing place. This is cat befitting the image of Jaguar, elegance, power and luxury.


Favorite Features

Styling and power, also high tech aspects of the car, such as vitual instrumental cluster.


Suggested Improvements

More 20 inch wheel (rim) choices.
