The technology present in modern luxury cars is truly stunning. The fact that most of it is included as standard equipment on the 2008 Jaguar XJ sweetens an already enticing package.
TheCarConnection.com observes that the 2008 Jaguar XJ bristles with electronics and other niceties, such as "air conditioning with dual-zone automatic climate controls, power tilt/telescopic wood/leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, heated front and rear seats, 16-way power front bucket seats with lumbar adjustment, memory system (driver seat, mirrors, steering wheel, pedals), heated power mirrors with automatic day/night [dimming], universal garage door opener, rain-sensing variable-intermittent wipers, automatic xenon headlights with washers, theft-deterrent system, computer-controlled self-leveling suspension, and alloy wheels" as noted by ConsumerGuide. And Edmunds points out that the Bluetooth system in the 2008 Jaguar "can recognize five different phones."
The higher-range Jaguar XJ variants come with even more cool stuff. Kelley Blue Book reports that of the 2008 Jaguar XJ trims, the "Vanden Plas, XJR and Super V8 offer twin rear-seat DVD monitors built into the backs of the front-seat headrests" and "The Super V8's power rear seat adjusts for the ultimate in chauffeured luxury." And Cars.com points to an earlier, fully loaded Jaguar XJ Super V8 sedan, citing said adjustable rear seat, as well as "navigation system, power-folding side mirrors and folding tables for the backseat" and advises readers to "expect similar equipment for 2008."
Cars.com also lists optional equipment available on the 2008 Jaguar as including three-stage, actively heated and cooled front seats with perforated seating surfaces; a heated wood and leather steering wheel; Sirius Satellite Radio and navigation package; and an Alpine 320-Watt Sound System with AM/FM/CD, which includes 12 speakers and is pre-wired for a CD changer.
The 2008 Jaguar XJ mates old-style elegance with cutting-edge technology.
