2011 Jaguar XJ vs. Its Competition

2011 Jaguar XJ
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Radical new looks make some of the 2011 Jaguar XJ's competitors look fusty--but there's something to recommend each one.

The Audi A8 is the only other aluminum-space-frame luxury sedan, though Audi’s particular construction techniques and standard all-wheel drive makes it much heavier.

The Lexus LS 460 is a prime target for the new XJ, since it’s adopted an “L-finesse” exterior shape that appeals to a more feminine take on luxury.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS has coupe-like lines and a lavishly trimmed interior; it’s also offered in an AMG edition that’s more powerful than the Supersport XJ.
