Styling updates for the 2016 Jaguar XJ make it even more attractive in our eyes.
The XJ's wide range of engines and available all-wheel-drive make for a compelling option if you're looking to break away from the usual selection of executive-class sedans.
Audi's A7 and its swift S7 sibling are the XJ's sexiest German rivals.
Or if you're looking for something more traditionally styled, compare the XJ to Audi's A8 or even quicker S8.
While the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe is definitely a competitor for the XJ, we think the BMW's bulkier shape is the least sultry-looking of class.
Tech-centric buyers should cross-shop the XJ with BMW's 7-Series.
Mercedes-Benz's S-Class was recently redone, but sticks with the traditional luxury-car styling formula.
Looking for a bargain? The Infiniti Q70 (formerly the Q56) is a breakout outlier, but not nearly as refined as others in this class.
