Overview

What is it?

Jaguar’s futuristic range-topping saloon remains a striking car, even three years after launch. For 2014 it was tweaked, with subtly honed suspension settings, better sat nav, a standard eight-speed auto with stop-start plus big improvements in diesel efficiency. Now it's been facelifted again, with revised engines and interior tech, full-LED headlights and more distinctive 'J-blade' daytime running lights. 

The XJR is still around, with its 550bhp supercharged 5.0-litre V8 and Merc-AMG-like attitude. But now there's a R-Sport model for those who want the looks but not the fuel bills. There's a new top-of-the-line Autobiography trim too, for those who like to spend no less than six figures.

What's the verdict?

This is a lovely big limo. So svelte, it can even make a politician look cool.
