Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Jaguar XJ echoes British luxury sedans of yore, with big supercharged engines, a somewhat gaudy interior, and loads of elegant style.

Pros
Elegant looks
Old-money interior
Impressive standard features
Solid warranty
Smooth, powerful V-6

Cons
Cramped compared to competition
No electrified option
V-8 doesn’t provide big performance bump

The 2019 Jaguar XJ ranked #6 in Super Luxury Cars. Currently the Jaguar XJ has a score of 7.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 39 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Authoritative lineup of supercharged engines
Agile, poised handling

Cons
Dated, mediocre infotainment system
Interior refinement trails the competition
Passenger areas and trunk aren't as spacious as some
Ride quality isn't exceptionally smooth

The 2019 Jaguar XJ is different. It's still luxurious, with a well-appointed interior and many of the high-end features that are expected from this category. But its all-aluminum construction, adaptive suspension and powerful engine options ensure occupants know that Jaguar's priorities also include engaging performance.

Pros
Strong lineup of supercharged V6 and V8 engines
Lively handling and responsive steering
Available with all-wheel drive and in short- and long-wheelbase configurations
Body lines are more seductive than many in the segment

Cons
Front-seat room is a bit tighter than the competition's
Missing some of the latest top-line safety and technology features
Trunk is somewhat shallow and small for the class
Rear seats do not fold down to accommodate long cargo

For 2019, the XC90 has no major powertrain updates but some new standard features and updated option packages. Every model now has updated infotainment software, third-row seating, heated washer nozzles, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, and four-zone climate control, among other things. The higher trim levels have a Harman/Kardon premium stereo, navigation, sun shades in the rear side windows, and a tailored dashboard and upper door panels. The headlight washing system and full LED headlights with automatic high-beams are no longer standard on the R-Design and Inscription.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup's best features.

Pros
Svelte Swedish looks
Less-is-more interior
Tablet-like infotainment
Wide variety of models and trims
Standard safety tech

Cons
Not worth six figures at top end
Base powertrain lacks oomph
Rear seats could use more support
Questionable materials in places
