Smooth, powerful V-6

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

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
