The XJ L runs on a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder diesel engine capable of delivering 271 hp at 4,000 rpm with a torque of 442 lb/ft at 2,000 rpm. Tuned to a 6-speed automatic transmission, this is enough to propel the XJ L to a top speed of 249 km/h and an acceleration time of 4.7 seconds going from 0-100 km/h. Fuel economy is pegged at 6 km/l on city roads and 13 km/l on highways which means an overall rate of 9.5 km/l.
Safety features haven’t been compromised for the XJ L. Airbags at the front and side provide protection against on-head and side collisions and a whiplash protection system guard’s the driver’s and passenger’s necks in the event of crashes. There’s also a seat belt reminder if you forget to attach yours. Additional safety features include a pedestrian contact sensing system and 3-Flash lane indicators.
A streamlined profile is what the XJ L exhibits with a sweeping roofline that adds to its aerodynamics and a drag coefficient of a mere 0.29. The extended wheelbase offers more interior room so users can bask in comfort. Cat’s claw LED lights on the rear flow down the wings in three vertical red strips. A wide bonnet and low height are immediately noticeable, lending it an air of quiet power.
The four-door saloon boasts a spacious interior that hosts automatic climate control, air quality sensing and a panoramic glass roof. Users can turn on the mood lighting feature and phosphor blue halo illumination to create an intimate setting. Suede cloth premium headlining and carpet mats on the front and rear provide plush comfort.
The low, wide front is matched by the deep-set mesh grille and is complemented by the body color bumpers at the rear and front. Alloy wheels, tinted glasses and a rear spoiler enhance its good looks, maintaining fluidity and its contemporary style.
Soft leather, chrome and wood veneers adorn the inside of the XJ L. It’s spacious and offers users plenty of leg room and easy maneuverability. The 5-seater is incorporated with more leather than earlier Jaguar models, covering the instrument panel, center console, arm rests and doors. A virtual instrument display offers drivers with more information while a touch screen display lets you control features like climate control, audio systems and your cellphone. Additional goodies include a 30GB hard drive, Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound and the Media Hub connectivity.
