New Jaguar XJ released
11th August, 2010
Jaguar Australia has launched the all-new Jaguar XJ into
the Australian market.
Sleek, sporting and sophisticated, the all-new Jaguar XJ brings a daring new spirit to automotive
luxury - it offers an appealing mix of striking design, breathtaking performance and engineering without
Building on the success of the exciting XK and XF models, the introduction of the all-new XJ is a
landmark for the revitalised Jaguar brand. Clearly positioned as the company's four-door flagship, it
extends the appeal of the XJ to a new generation of customers.
"The new XJ is a thoroughly modern interpretation of the quintessential Jaguar. Its visual impact
stems from the elongated teardrop shape of the car's side windows, that powerful stance and its wide
track. It is the most emphatic statement yet of Jaguar's new design direction", said Ian Callum,
Design Director, Jaguar Cars.
An innovative new panoramic glass roof is an integral part of the all-new XJ's design concept,
enabling the car to have a lower, more streamlined roofline, while dramatically enhancing the feeling of
light and space inside.
Standard and long-wheelbase models are available from launch in Australia. The long-wheelbase offers
an even more sumptuous and refined environment for rear-seat passengers with an additional 125 mm of
legroom. Whichever the wheelbase, the XJ's 520 litre boot can swallow two large suitcases
The all-new XJ's cabin is a marvel in its own right, blending elegant, contemporary design with the
comfort, luxury and unmistakable sporting style of a Jaguar. Chrome and piano black detailing provide an
eye-catching contrast to the beautifully-crafted leather and veneer surfaces.
All of Jaguar's acclaimed new ultra-efficient Gen III petrol and diesel engines are available in the
all-new XJ. The 3.0-litre V6 diesel, 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 and 5.0-litre supercharged V8 have
already proved their breadth of ability, and they are joined by a 346 kW version of the supercharged
engine. Fuel economy and emissions are also outstanding, with the diesel-powered XJ returning combined
economy figures of 7.0 l/100 kms and CO2 emissions of a low 184 g/km for the standard-wheelbase car.
Proven Jaguar dynamic technologies are taken to new levels in the all-new XJ. Features such as rear
air suspension, Adaptive Dynamics (continuously variable damping), Active Differential Control and
quick-ratio power steering deliver the blend of responsive, dynamic handling and refined, supple ride
expected from a Jaguar.
Inside the car, advanced new technologies have allowed Jaguar's designers to provide an environment
more akin to a state-of-the-art living space than a simple car cabin. Stunning, 12.3-inch high-definition
Virtual Instruments complement an innovative, Dual-View technology 8-inch Touch-screen that can project
DVD movies or television programmes to the passenger while the driver views vehicle functions or follows
The top-of-the-range 1200W Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system, which is standard on Portfolio and
Supersport models, is comparable in audio quality to the best in-home entertainment. Advanced
infotainment features also include hard drive-based audio and navigation systems, and comprehensive
connectivity for portable audio and video devices via the powerful Media Hub.
The all-new XJ also takes a new approach to sustainable motoring. Constructed using Jaguar's
aerospace-inspired aluminium body technology, the XJ is lighter than its rivals by at least 150 kg which
significantly improves performance, handling and economy, while delivering increased strength,
refinement and safety.
"The all-new Jaguar XJ reinforces the strength of the new Jaguar in the Australian market and with
its spectacular looks and performance competes with a much wider range of competitors than any previous
XJ", said Jaguar Australia's General Manager, Kevin Goult.
The first Australian customer deliveries of the all-new Jaguar XJ, begin this month.
