The Jaguar XJ is a different proposition to previous models despite still being a saloon. The rear-wheel drive XJ is one of the lightest cars in its class and is instantly recognisable by its black-clad C-pillars, designed to blend seamlessly with the rear screen, giving the façade of one, wrap-around window. There are automatic LED headlights and revised daylight running lights that are standardised on all models. The vehicle’s wheelbase is extended by 125mm over the standard-length car. With previous versions lacking space, the latest XJ doesn’t have that same issue as it possesses significant rear legroom and generous headroom. The vehicle can be purchased for around £60,550.

Top Gear verdict: “This is a lovely big limo. So svelte, it can make a politician look cool.”
