MORE POWERFUL: New version Jaguar R-Sport.
WHAT with the launch of the new revised BMW 7 series, Jaguar doesn’t want to be left out of the fight in the luxury saloon car segment. Hailed as a symphony of leather and technology, from next autumn we will have a revised XJ range for 2016. New versions R-Sport and Autobiography benefit from an extra 25 horses while reducing fuel consumption by 6 per cent. Not only that, but a push on the in-car technology front will see a multimedia computer premiere with multi-touch screen among other techno bells and whistles. The maximum luxury and advanced equipment will certainly be a bonus, but with special emphasis on the performance of the three-litre V6 diesel, having been been thoroughly renovated to meet anti-pollution regulations of ‘Euro 6’, economy was a defining reason in the renovation package. A new higher pressure injection system, injectors, and all new turbos, complete with their own with thermal management system improve efficiency, all help to up the performance figures from 275 to 300bhp, while at the same time reducing consumption from 6.1 to 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The petrol engines of 340bhp 3.0 V6 and 5.0 V8 550bhp will remain unchanged, and as with the diesel, are mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission. However, the allwheel drive option is only available for petrol engines.
