2019 Jaguar XJ vs. Its Competition

2019 Jaguar XJ
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Style and overall British-ness set the XJ apart from the majority of its competition, but the Germans have been building big, luxurious sedans for just as long.

The Audi A8 represents the most tech-savvy of the executive sedans with a sharp new redesign in the last year, while the BMW 7-Series makes its hay on performance and drivability.

Of course, there’s a reason the Mercedes-Benz S-Class still outsells the lot, and it continues to be the heavy-hitter in this segment.

With a recent redesign, the Lexus LS comes out swinging with bold style and impressive comfort, and though the Cadillac CT6 is smaller and cheaper, it’s a sporty performer and the only one of the lot to offer turbo-4 power as an option.
