Eye-catching design, an opulent interior, and a slew of comfort and convenience features make the 2018 Jaguar XJ worth a test drive for shoppers in the market for a full-size luxury sedan that stands out from the crowd. Although the current-generation XJ eschews the conservative, classic style of its predecessors in exchange for more up-to-date lines, it still exudes an aura of sophistication befitting a vehicle in this class. And its British roots help distinguish it from rivals that hail primarily from Germany.

The XJ's interior surrounds occupants in soft leather, real wood and chrome trim. The level of opulence might actually put off some buyers, but others will appreciate the attempt to update the club-chair Jaguar cabins of old. Front-seat room is a bit tight compared to what many competitors offer, but passengers in the back will be treated to an abundance of legroom. And in the long-wheelbase version, rear occupants can enjoy an additional 5 inches of space as well as reclining seats and fold-down tray tables. The XJ's technology might not be as up-to-date as it could be, but this year's refresh does add a larger, improved touchscreen display and more standard active safety aids.

The base XJ R-Sport is powered by a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that generates 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Optional powerplants include two 5.0-liter supercharged V8s that produce 470 hp and 575 hp, respectively. All engines drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is available on the base models only.

The standard electronically controlled active suspension ensures a smooth ride over virtually all road surfaces, while light steering and minimal body roll give the impression of driving a much smaller car. The JaguarDrive selector — which modulates transmission shift points, throttle, steering and ride quality — allows drivers to choose between Normal, Dynamic and Winter settings. And acceleration, even with the standard V6, is impressively smooth, although buyers can up the performance considerably by specifying one of the V8s.

The base R-Sport comes extremely well equipped, as would be expected in this vehicle class. Features such as heated and cooled leather seats, adaptive headlights and a power trunklid come standard. Moving up to the long-wheelbase Portfolio trim adds upgraded leather upholstery and four-zone climate control, while the Supercharged model features a V8 engine and stiffer suspension. The top-of-the-line XJR575 includes the high-horsepower V8 as well as additional performance goodies. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2018 Jaguar XJ that best meets your needs.
