Jaguar has enhanced the XJ’s connectivity with 4G Wi-Fi capability which can be paired with up to eight devices and a new larger ten-inch touchscreen.

Lane keep assist, driver drowsiness detection and forward traffic detection are all as standard, while autonomous emergency braking now features pedestrian detection.
