THE 2014 model year Jaguar XJ is the latest in a long line from the luxury car maker.
The sports saloon incorporates enhanced features to create a contemporary Jaguar.
The Jaguar XJ is offered with a choice of a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder i4 turbocharged petrol engine, diesel and supercharged petrol 3.0-litre V6 engines and four 5.0-litre V8 petrol engines, one normally aspirated and three supercharged.
These engines are mated to Jaguar’s eight-speed automatic gearbox which offers a broad spread of ratios for a combination of smooth-shifting, economy and driver control.
The 2014 XJ, available later this year from €98,950, features a range of enhanced interior features focussed on the rear cabin of the car resulting in the most accomplished Jaguar luxury saloon, according to the manufacturer.
The rear passenger compartment of the 2014 LWB car includes two individual ‘airline style’ reclining seats which both feature cushion and squab adjustment, three massage programmes, lumbar adjustment and two memory settings for each seat.
The new centre armrest, which can be stowed in the upright position to allow the use of the centre seat, houses all the seat controls as well as the Front Seat Activation button which allows control of the front passenger seat from the rear.
Front seat enhancements include massage functions for each seat with five levels of intensity, allowing occupants to personalise their massage settings to their preference.
The XJ presents a varied palette of materials used on the interior. This includes Bond grain, soft grain and semi-aniline leather, and a wide choice of veneers including Piano Black, Carbon Fibre, Gloss Burr Walnut and Satin Rosewood.
It also features a range of wheels including the newly designed Manra 18-inch lightweight forged alloy.
