In terms of design, the facelifted XJ remains largely the same, but has been updated with more upright front grille designed with mesh detail, full-LED headlights and the double-J designed daytime running light. At the rear, revised bumper and tail lights are incorporated with LEDs.

Inside the cabin, the 2016 Jaguar XJ sedan gets remodelled 31.24 cm TFT screen to display speed, fuel and temperature gauges and a 20.32 cm touch screen instrument panel. The car also gets rear seat entertainment system with 25.90 cm HD screens and in-control touch pro infotainment system for connectivity with reclining seats, a panoramic glass roof and LED reading lights.

The new XJ is assembled in India at the Jaguar Land Rover facility near Pune. The luxury sedan competes with the Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the soon to be launched next generation BMW 7 series.
