The facelifted Jaguar XJ has been officially launched in Malaysia following its public appearance at the Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC) recently. On offer are three long wheelbase variants, comprising two petrol engines and a sole oil burner.

Prices start at RM645,729.50 for the Jaguar XJ L 2.0 Ti , which is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 240 PS and 340 Nm of torque. The only other petrol offering here is a 3.0 litre supercharged V6 with 340 PS and 450 Nm on tap, which will set you back RM832,467.50.

As for the diesel option, it is fitted with a 3.0 litre turbocharged V6, with 300 PS and 700 Nm of torque. The oil burner retails at RM802,462.50. All three engines are paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission (with Jaguar Sequential Shift), directing power to the rear wheels.

Keep in mind that the prices quoted here are on-the-road (inclusive of GST, road tax and registration) but does not include insurance. Another thing to note is, the car shown at BSC is inclusive of various cost options (explained below), hence the price differential.

Visual changes on the feline luxobarge include a revised front fascia featuring a new bumper design, sharper grille and full LED headlamps (standard) with twin “J-Blade” daytime running lights. At the rear, the tail lamps gets the same “J-style” treatment as well, accompanied by a revised bumper and oval exhaust pipes.

Moving inside, the XJ now comes with Jaguar’s InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. The unit is powered by a quad-core processor, and comes with a 60 GB solid state drive to store your music and an eight-inch colour touchscreen.

It is also linked to the 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster that can now display a full navigation map, like what you will find on the the new XF (in other markets) and F-Pace. Other standard equipment include a powered bootlid, navigation function for the infotainment system and an 825 W, 20-speaker Meridian Surround Sound system.

On the unit we saw at BSC, items like the dual 10.2-inch rear entertainment screens, rear business tables, ambient lighting pack, walnut wood trim and 20-inch Kasuga alloy wheels are cost options that have been added on.

Each XJ comes with Jaguar Care, which includes a five-year/150,000 km warranty, five-year or 80,000 km (for the 2.0L variant) or 65,000 km (for both 3.0L variants) servicing and three-year Jaguar Roadside Assistance.
