The 2018 Jaguar XJ is a full-size Luxury, lagging behind in the race for the latest cutting-edge technology, but still manages to offer sexier than any of its competitors. Jaguar XJ 2018 is available in regular long-wheelbase models, the latter becoming the standard configuration of the class. All 2018 XJ models will come with heated and refreshing seats on all levels, but only the longer XJL models can be equipped with reclining rear seats, rear footrests, folding trays for the laptop, and rear entertainment system with two screens. There’s a lot to enjoy while you’re in the quiet, comfortable, and well-equipped cabin of the 2018 XJ, without the latest gadgets you want to show neighbors. And like many previous Jaguars, the design has to stand the test of time.
2018 Jaguar XJ Interior
the inside of the 2018 Jaguar XJL would be excellent, but the ergonomic issues affect your score. The high-end rear seat set, which includes electric seats, 10-inch dual screens, laptop tables, power screens, and winged headrests, adds considerable luxury. Despite recent updates, the touch-screen information and entertainment interface is still behind some newer systems. The graphics are attractive, but the functionality is average. In addition, many surfaces projected by a mirror project a reflection when the weather is nice and can distract.
Large, soft-closing doors require only strong light, and access to all seats is excellent. The sloped roofline, often a problem with these stylish sedans, cannot be a problem for larger occupants. The keyless entry with button ignition is also standard. The Jaguar XJ 2018 model is big enough to be called a short limousine. There is plenty of room for the rear passengers, but the front passengers can feel a little comfortable because of the high center console and the way the board unfolds like a cabin. There is enough headroom, front and back, for medium-sized adults.
The forward view is particularly good thanks to the thin windshield pillars and a long sloped roof. There is a large three-quarter rear dead-center, but blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sonar are standard and mitigate this danger.
2018 Jaguar XJ Features
The 2017 Jaguar XJ remains relatively unchanged, with the exception of some new paint colors and a new 19-inch wheel design. The XJL’s long wheelbase portfolio is due to the additional 5-inch space allocated to the rear legroom. The supercharged V6 base engine has plenty of power for everyday use and is much more efficient than any optional V8 engine. The 2018 XJL comes very well equipped, the only other thing we could wish for is the parking aid package, which adds 360 degrees view camera parking sensors and parallel/perpendicular parking assist.
2018 Jaguar XJ Engine
The Jaguar XJ 2018 features a series of powerful supercharged engines: a V6 in the base models and two V8 levels for the intermediate and higher level trainees. There is also a rear or all-wheel drive option. Engines provide more than enough driving force in the 2018 Jaguar XJ, even if their sporting intentions do not match rivals’ levels.
