How does it feel to drive?
2016 Jaguar XJ L is really a massive looking machine. Not only soothes you with its presence but it makes you feel complete with its sheer presence. The vehicle is Jaguar’s longest offered vehicle. It gives you the looks and luxury if a limousine and it gives you a power of the beast. The car’s engine is refined yet seems t be unexplored for a greater extent. Our regular roads seemed to keep me under limits and hence I couldn’t really exploit the car to its extent. I managed to clock 250kmph on one of the finest roads in Maharashtra. 0-100kmph sprint is really quick but it doesnt make you feel so. Behind the wheel, the car really offers you its own kind of control. The pedals give you every idea of what that car can do and even a bit push to the throttle makes the Jaguars thirsty engine roar.
The engine has a crisp sound and its very well damped. In fact sometime you forget that its a diesel engine. The engine’s noise even gets behind the wheel, but no to such an extent that it will make you go mad because of it. The driving modes are helpful in every way but not really required for the Jaguar XJ L . The adjustable suspensions convince us to be comfortable as much as we can in the vehicle. Around the curves, the vehicle seems a bit heavy due to the long length, but yet it manages to get in and out of the curve with the same aggression and grip. On steep climbs and peaks, the vehicle steers a bit harder but doesn’t lose control even a bit. The long length of the vehicle makes you look at your rear view mirror every now and then. Its length makes you worry at every corner. The vehicle is equipped with ABS and hence obviously breaks well, but frankly, it could’ve got a bit better. The non-drivers compartment is full of bells and whistles than one expect in such car. You have glass as well as bottle holders in there, you have adjustable seats, a big led display for any kind of entertainment, speakers are placed all over the vehicle and they provide you with excellent sound quality.
The car’s interior is absolutely flawless. It is provided with pure leather upholstery. Variable colour shades are available as per the customer’s requirement. The interior’s colour changes as per the colour of the vehicle. There is an 8-inch touch screen media player which allows you to go through cars systems and working software. The steering wheel really gives you a luxurious feeling. The dashboard is well matched with the interior and has good quality plastic build. Not forget to mention the most important aspect of the car is the leg space for the driver as well as for the passenger is big enough to keep both happy as well as their feet stretched.
To sum it up, The Jaguar XJ L is really a magnificent piece of artwork. It has got beauty with brains. It comes with a package of a powerful engine suited with curvy and sexy body curves. The Jaguars typical chrome grill makes it even more aggressive. The facelift 2016 variant has got, gives it a bit out of the box look and hence makes it a bit special than the other Jaguar’s out there.
How does the ride feel?
The vehicle has a really a lot to offer. The dynamic yet minimalist added features make it a bit really out of the box. The vehicle has an intense punch coming from the engine compartment which makes you stick to your driving seat. If you push the throttle really hard, the big Jag offers you all it has got and yet it doesn’t get out of power till the road ends. The driving modes, adjustable suspensions and the added wheelbase give the ride to all the required ability to go over every terrain’s and give you the same amount of riding comfort as well offers you the same vehicular control. The limousine approaches and leaves every corner very aggressively yet you have the total control of the vehicle.
Sitting behind, it feels luxurious and much comforting. There is a lot you can do sitting behind, with the LCD entertainment screen and also have a coffee sitting there. The cup holders and wrist adjustments are much comforting and give a much high-class feel. With all the well-worked leather upholstery and the camouflaged speakers all over the vehicle, you have an outstanding feeling sitting behind. Even if you are travelling through uneven pavements, the vehicle doesn’t let you down. It seems to be a perfect collision of power and beauty. It’s worth to pay around 1 cr for this car we feel.
