Blending the ultimate in luxury and refinement with sharp sports styling, the new Jaguar XJ R-Sport is the ideal car for drivers who want to make a bold statement. Assertive looks, a choice of powerful yet efficient engines, sports seats and the latest technology make driving this premium saloon an awesome prospect.
Building on the sleek and athletic looks of the XJ range, the R-Sport adds a sports body kit, designed to lift the exterior of the model to a new level. The radiator grille comes with a gloss black finish, while a front splitter, side window finishers, rear valance, rear spoiler and branded side sills add to the striking silhouette.
A set of 20-inch alloy wheels also helps to give the model a distinctive look, along with the front full LED headlights and unmistakable rear LED running lights. Rear privacy glass adds to the feeling of exclusivity. An optional Black pack is available to make the XJ R-Sport even more assertive.
The sporty theme of the exterior is replicated in the cabin through the use of a black veneer finish and soft grain perforated leather sports seats with contrast stitching. The heated leather steering wheel is embossed with the R-Sport logo, and bright sports pedals compliment the theme.
Comfort is assured thanks to electrically adjustable seats, four-zone automatic climate control and attractive mood lighting. There's considerable room available for front and rear seat passengers, and the car's panoramic roof helps increase the feeling of space by letting natural light flood the cabin.
You are in complete control thanks to Jaguar's one-touch start button, which will have the XJ's engine purring in a heartbeat. Stay connected with the InControl Touch Pro's on-board Wi-Fi system and Bluetooth® connectivity, or simply sit back and relax in front of the car's digital television screens.
Helping to keep you and your passengers safe are numerous active and passive features, including a high-strength body shell, Emergency Brake Assist, whiplash protection and Traffic Sign Recognition. Get help with manoeuvring safely in tight spaces thanks to front and rear parking aids.
Choosing the right engine to suit your driving style and requirements is critical. The R-Sport comes with a choice of two powertrains – a 3.0-litre V6 diesel offering 300PS and a supercharged V6 petrol engine with a 340PS power output. For buyers who value performance above efficiency, the petrol option with its 0-60mph time of 5.7 seconds will certainly appeal. The diesel engine is also remarkably quick and can carry the vehicle from a standing start to 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds, yet is capable of returning 49.6mpg combined.
Handling is sharp and responsive thanks to the model's all-aluminium body and Jaguar's Adaptive Dynamics System which monitors the car's settings up to 500 times a second to deliver a dynamic and agile driving experience.
