Jaguar has revised the line-up of the award-winning XJ, offering customers even better value-for-money with a host of additional features now offered at no extra cost.
UK Managing Director, Geoff Cousins, said: "The latest Jaguar XJ already benefits from stronger exterior styling for a more assertive and sporting appearance, significant improvements to the interior, and the latest intuitive in-car technology.
"Recent improvements to the interior include an all-new seat design for improved comfort and support and heated front seats standard across the range while air-cooling is now standard on Sovereign models. The XJ also gained an increase in rear leg and foot room thanks to redesigned front seat backs, allowing easier access to the back seats.
"Within the large premium sector, the updated XJ range offers even more outstanding value-for-money for the luxury customer who seeks refinement and dynamic performance combined with a competitive fuel economy. With two highly acclaimed engines to choose from, the XJ is undoubtedly a smart choice for buyers in today's market."
For the second year running, the XJ 2.7-litre diesel was named Britain's Greenest Luxury Car in the Environmental Transport Association's 2008 Car Buyers Guide. The award recognises Jaguar's commitment to delivering CO2 and fuel consumption advantages to customers, with the development of industry-leading diesel engines and application of advanced lightweight aluminium vehicle architectures.
Renowned for its all-aluminium body construction, the updated Jaguar XJ line-up offers a choice of two engines for customers - the Jaguar XJ diesel which offers drivers of luxury saloons the option to choose a car with combined fuel economy of 35.0mpg and CO2 emissions of only 209g/km - an improved figure for 2009, or the mighty 4.2-litre supercharged V8 petrol which has been named 'Super V8'.
