Next Generation Jaguar XJ will have much sportier exterior; interior changes will be accompanied by host of added technologies
Jaguar XJ is the oldest sedan in the British luxury automaker’s product lineup, which is still in production. It was first introduced way back in 2009 and now with a significant change is long due, Jaguar is working on the new gen model of XJ. Here is a rendered image, which gives us an idea about how the next generation Jaguar XJ luxury sedan is going to look like.
The new-gen Jaguar XJ is expected to launch sometime in 2019 and it will come designed in line with the British brand’s latest design language, which can be seen in other models. The rendered image imagines the new XJ with an inspiration from smaller XF sedan and also the new I-Pace concept. Jaguar has just revealed the I-Pace concept at the ongoing Los Angeles Auto Show.
While the 2019 Jaguar XJ takes inspiration from its sibling, it will also carry some design element from the current generation model. The car is expected to come more stylish and luxurious than the present model. It sports different-looking sleek LED headlamps, with LED daytime running lights, a large and aggressive front grille, large air intake and a new bold bumper.
The hood gets sleek creases running toward the nose section and giving it a sculpted appearance. At the side profile, the sharply designed wheels, nicely curved roofline, chrome trim around glass area, black B pillar and a thick C pillar altogether enhance its visual appeal. The C pillar could use glass instead of black plastic. Rear fascia of the car comes with a long and wide look. It comes with a clean and sleek appearance, with trimmed and wide LED taillights.
While its rivals like Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series come with a larger sales volume; Jaguar XJ’s sales figure has been declining for quite some time. Also, several other luxury car brands like Audi, Lexus, Maserati and Genesis are giving Jaguar tough competition. To stay afloat in competition, now the company is working on new-generation XJ.
