A very clean example of the iconic Jaguar XJ this one is certainly a pleasure to drive
This jag has a great colour and interior combination and both outside and in is fairly pristine
The recent service history is good and in 2016 she had new shocks and suspension work totalling £800.
Because this model XJ is more than 200kg lighter than the previous 3.2 V8 entry-level model, there is no performance deficit. What’s more, thanks to a 60 per cent stiffer bonded and riveted aluminium body, improved build and lower noise levels.
If anything, the 3.0-litre is the best choice line-up. It boasts a respectable combined fuel economy figure of 27mpg, plus lower insurance costs and CO2 ratings. Standard CATS computer active suspension and traction control inspire confidence and help deliver huge levels of grip, especially with the firmer Sport set-up while the brakes offer excellent stopping power and plenty of feedback.
For such a big car it has immediate and predictable responses, which give the big Jag the feel of a much smaller and more agile car, but at no detriment to the superb ride. Among all the luxury cars on sale today, the XJ6 is certainly one of the most driver-oriented. Performance is not lacking, either, as the Jaguar sprints from 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds – two seconds quicker than a basic level S class
Features include electrically adjustable leather-clad seats, cruise control, climate control, reach-adjustable pedals and a top class sound system, while Sport trim adds figure-hugging seats, tuned suspension and 18-inch alloys.
