With the XJL’s distinctive new appearance, opulent interior, and impressive road manners, it is a worthy and contemporary heir to the XJ lineage.

The 2012 XJL Supersport is way too much fun to drive, to hand its keys to hired help. Better to depress the checkered flag “Sports Handling” button on the center console, and blast off in a sedan that looks like a Bentley but behaves like a Ferrari.

A few flaws notwithstanding, the 2012 XJ Portfolio is a great Jaguar, a great XJ and should be considered by anyone in the market for a full size luxury sedan.

If you’re looking for all the luxury and legroom you could ever need, without buying a mega-dollar Bentley or Rolls-Royce, then something like the 2012 Jaguar XJ will be ideal.

While there’s plenty to enjoy from the driver’s seat, the XJL is just as nice a place to be if you happen to be stuck in the backseat. When you stack it against the competition, this Jag starts to look like a bargain.

Just about everyone will appreciate the XJ V-6’s reasonable fuel economy. Its $47,850 base price should be plenty tempting to a whole new group of mid-size luxury car buyers. Most important, the cars we sampled still felt, drove, and smelled like Jaguars.

The Jaguar XJ is luxury without the excess plush. It’s performance without being abrasive. Elegant without being derivative. Modern without being ostentatious. Sinful without being illegal. And now, it’s wrapped in a cover that tells exactly what’s inside.

Although bigger in stature, the new Jaguar XJ feels sleeker and sexier than the XF sedan, and is nearly as hot as the XK sports car. Welcome to the cool crowd, Jag.

For a long time I have placed these big Jaguar sedans in third place behind the BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The 2011 XJ and XJL change that.

Zach Bowman Zach Bowman 6.0 out of 10 2011 Jaguar XJ Sedan

In a world dominated by variations on the same theme, the 2011 XJL is as close to shrugging off the bland, conservative lines of the luxury sedan as you’re apt to find. It satisfies all of the prerequisites for a high-dollar automobile while still striking its own chord.
