Music, radio and podcasts for your entertainment. Phone and navigation systems for your convenience.


Designed for the XJ by Meridian™, the British audio experts, three different systems are available in XJ models. Standard on the XJ and XJL Portfolio is a 380 watt Meridian™ Sound System. It features 14 speakers and Dynamic Volume Control, which continuously compensates for changes in ambient sound to give you consistently high-quality audio. In addition, Meridian™ Cabin Correction (MCC) delivers natural audio reproduction that has been optimized for the acoustics of the XJ passenger compartment.

The 825 watt Meridian™ Surround Sound System uses no less than 20 speakers, including two subwoofers, plus Audyssey MultEQ sound equalization technology to produce 7.1 surround sound. With Meridian’s exclusive Trifield™ technology delivering a wide, full stereo experience, you receive incredibly realistic audio – just as the artist intended it to be heard.

This system is standard on the XJ Supercharged and XJR, and available as an upgrade on the XJ and XJL models. 

The ultimate is the Meridian™ Reference Audio System with Conversation Assist. With 1,300 watts of maximum power and 26 speakers, including three mounted in the back of each front seat, this reference surround sound system certainly earns its name. The large array of speakers helps to ensure that each occupant within the vehicle cabin is provided with a more personal music experience. The Conversation Assist uses individual microphones above each seating position to reinforce the occupant’s voice during normal conversation.

Keep passengers entertained with dual 10.2 inch screens in the rear of the front headrests. Rear passengers can watch a DVD or streamed video via the Rear Media Interface. The system includes two WhiteFire™ digital wireless headphones. This feature is only available on long wheelbase models as part of the Premium Rear Seat Package.


You have complete flexibility operating the XJ multimedia systems, selecting a music track, taking a phone call or asking the navigation system for directions.5 The Virtual Instrument display in the XJ is ready to offer relevant information in an instant. The crystal-clear screen automatically varies the display to offer multimedia options – with the tachometer to the right of the speedometer temporarily replaced by alert messages, such as low fuel, or prompts for spoken commands. A large, 8 inch Touch-screen display in the center console provides an intuitive way to manage many XJ functions, including climate control, audio, communications and navigation.5 In addition, with Interactive Voice™ many multimedia operations can be controlled with simple spoken commands.5 This system is supported by a list of prompts in the Virtual Instruments.


You’re always in touch. With Bluetooth® connectivity you can make phone calls using the Touch-screen or steering-wheel controls, or stream audio content wirelessly to the XJ entertainment system. The XJ navigation system provides clear, up-to-date directions and, if necessary, congestion alerts with alternative routes. And if you’re running low on fuel, the Touch-screen displays details on the nearest gas stations.5


At the heart of the multimedia functions in the XJ is an internal hard-disk drive holding the database for the car’s sophisticated navigation system. In addition, the system can connect to audio, video and memory devices through its USB port, a 3.5 mm auxiliary jack or wirelessly via Bluetooth® 2.0 audio streaming. The USB dock is compatible with most iPod® and iPhone® devices, and offers full-function control via Touch-screen menus.
