The 2012 Jaguar XJ is a 4-door, rear-wheel drive, full-size luxury sedan available in three trim levels and two different wheelbase lengths. Nineteen-inch alloy wheels are standard on all models, as are bi-function Xenon headlamps, power-folding heated exterior mirrors, and a panoramic sunroof.
The 2012 Jaguar XJ seats 5 and offers 15.2 cubic feet of trunk space. Base models feature heated leather power seats and heated leather steering wheel. Other standard equipment on the base XJ include a 14-speaker sound system, Bluetooth connectivity, virtual instrument cluster, touch-screen interface, navigation system, and keyless entry and ignition. The upgraded XJL Portfolio model includes massaging front seats, 4-zone automatic climate control, and, as with all "L" models, added leg room due to the longer wheelbase. The XJ Supercharged model offers a 20-speaker audio system, while the top-tier Supersport model features a rear-seat entertainment system with headrest-mounted screens.
