Jaguar XJ Crowned Best Luxury Car in the UK

The new Jaguar XJ is a very interesting vehicle that manages to mix old and new elements into one spectacular luxury cocktail. Add to that the fact that it is also packed with technology, and you begin to realize why it was named ‘Best Luxury Car’ by readers of the British BusinessCar magazine.

"As the BusinessCar Awards are decided solely by the readers of the magazine and website, it means the Jaguar XJ is a proven hit in the UK business market. Sales show it achieved segment leadership despite only going on sale in May 2010 and we're delighted to add this award to its credentials. The XJ is our latest model and has brought a bold new approach to the luxury car market in the UK with its distinctive design, generous accommodation, exceptional performance and strong economy credentials," stated Geoff Cousins, Managing Director, Jaguar UK.

At the center of the XJ’s advanced construction is a next generation lightweight architecture, made primarily from aluminum, but also from magnesium and composite alloys. This makes the car lighter than most of the other competitors in its class, while also being sufficiently stiff.

“The stunning new Jaguar XJ is already proving its worth and appeal in the corporate marketplace, and deservedly takes the BusinessCar Award in what’s a very competitive sector. Jaguar’s targeted approach with the new car in the business car market is obviously paying off, as this reader-voted award proves,” BusinessCar's Editor Paul Barker added.

Jaguar is offering the XJ with a choice of four engines, including a 500 horsepower 5.0-liter AJ-V8 that pushes the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds. Most customers will prefer the diesel alternative, in the form of a 3.0-liter with twin sequential turbochargers.
