The all-new and long overdue redesigned 2010 Jaguar XJ was unveiled on the 9th July 2009 at the Saatchi Gallery in London.

The 2010 Jaguar XJ is based on an aluminium monocoque chassis which is both light and stiff. While developing the chassis Jaguar's engineers tried to balance agility with comfort.

Like the Jaguar XF the 2010 XJ makes a dramatic departure from the Jaguars of old. Gone is the old-man inspired styling and in its place is a contemporary but distinctive new look which will set it apart from the rivals. Up front the new XJ shares many styling traits with the well-recieved XF including the rounded rectangular grille, slit-like headlights, and taught style lines in the hood emanating from the grille.

From the rear the 2010 Jaguar XJ has a somewhat polarizing design which shares little with any previous or current Jags. And in fact when viewed from the rear the styling appears more Italian in origin than British - think Maserati or Lancia. It remains to be seen whether potential buyers will be turned off by the extravagant design of the rear, or embrace the fact Jaguar has tried something different.

Another area Jaguar has broken with tradition is with the interior which is highly customizable for the buyer and offers a range of colors and materials not familiar to a brand like Jaguar. The choices will range from sporty to luxurious and anywhere in-between. The audio system from Bowers and Wilkins has been specifically tailored for the XJ by Jaguars audio engineers and offers the same audio quality and clarity throughout the entire interior.

To bring light into the interior the 2010 XJ features a glass panel in the roof which begins where the windscreen ends and ends just above the heads of the rear seat passengers. This feature is not a cost option but instead a standard feature of the car.

Standard- and long-wheelbase models of the XJ are available. The long-wheelbase version offers an addional 125 mm of legroom for the rear-seat passengers.
