Originally launched in 2011, the fourth-generation Jaguar XJ is still a head-turner to this day and to many its styling still exceeds that of its rivals from Germany. This year the big British flagship gets a refresh that puts its styling more in line with the current line up. 

On the exterior you'll see changes to the grille which is now more upright and features an all-new mesh pattern, a revised bumper, and new chrome blade details in the car's lower air intakes. The XJs will also get full LED headlights across the range and new LED tail lights and oval exhausts update the rear of the car.

Available in short and long wheelbase versions, the short wheelbase models will feature a new R-Sport line that can be distinguished by its blacked-out grille, black lower air intake surrounds, and black window surrounds. 

As for engine options, the XJ range will continue to feature a 3.0L supercharged V6 or a 5.0L supercharged V8 that will come in a 470 hp or 550 hp variant. 

Inside you'll find new diamond-quilted interior options, a standard 825-watt Meridian sound system, and their all-new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system that boasts a quad-core Intel processor, 60GB SSD, and an eight-inch capacitive touch-screen.
