"Jaguar sedans have always been irresistibly beautiful, and the 2014 XJ is no exception. The British are often thought of as stiff, but putting this car next to a BMW 7 Series, a dowdy Lexus LS or a big Mercedes makes them look like blocks of cheese. Pull up to a fine hotel or restaurant, or anywhere, really, in a Jaguar XJ and you are arriving in style.”

"Available with a short or long wheelbase, the R takes the already potent supercharged XJ Supercharged and transforms it into an English hooligan."

"It's the XJR that really blew me away, as I simply didn't expect to unearth such a brutish character, yet properly blended with opulence in Jaguar's true gentlemen-like fashion."

"Unless you’re willing to pay a lot more for the likes of the Bentley Flying Spur, Maserati Quattroporte, or Porsche Panamera, there’s nothing else with such attitude."
Motor Authority, August 2013
“The leather- and chrome-swathed interior is comfortable and refined without being stodgy, and the all-wheel-drive setup doesn't sap the supercharged six, which feels plenty powerful and responsive. The back seats will spoil your kids for life.”
