The 2010 Jaguar XJ will follow the dramatic design cues of the XF. Set to compete with Audi A8, BMW 7-Series and Mercedes S-Class, the new XJ will debut in mid-2009, with a concept version coming next year.

An updated version of the current model, the 2010 XJ’s wheelbase will remain virtually identical, so improvements in space will come from mounting the rear seats lower. Major updates will be made to the dashboard, with a facia modelled on the XF’s.

Under the hood there will be a revised version of the 3.0-litre V6 and th top model, R, will be powered by a 500bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8. Hybrid version is also in the work. All engines are mated to Jaguar’s latest six-speed automatic box, complete with steering wheel-mounted paddles. The XJ will also have a new damping system similar to Audi’s Magnetic Ride.
