Mumbai: Jaguar Land Rover has begun deliveries of the Jaguar XJ in India. The car was shown during the Delhi Auto Expo 2010.
Jaguar XJ has a sleek, sporting and sophisticated look. The elongated teardrop shape of the side windows establishes the car’s silhouette. It does not just look streamlined — its drag coefficient of 0.29 makes it the most aerodynamic Jaguar ever, along with the XF.
At the heart of the XJ’s construction lies the unique lightweight vehicle architecture. Primarily aluminum, but also using magnesium and composite alloys, this allows Jaguar to produce a significantly lighter and stiffer body – the lightest in its class. The structure features aerospace-based riveting and bonding processes, and uses these advanced materials to deliver improved strength, enhanced refinement and superior safety performance.
A coupé profile cloaks a cabin that offers comparable levels of space to saloons. There is generous accommodation for five occupants. The interior has a strong sporting character throughout. The glass roof enhances the sense of light and space inside.
The XJ introduces a new generation of interior technologies such as the innovative Virtual Instrument dials, 8” full color Dual View technology Touch Screen display and 1200W Bowers & Wilkins premium surround sound system.
The new XJ is available in India in the long wheelbase version. It is powered by 5.0-litre 385PS AJ-V8 Gen III naturally aspirated direct-injection V8 petrol engine.
