2012 Jaguar XJ

The logo of the Jaguar is one of the most iconic and recognizable images in the automobile industry, it immediately brings thoughts of grandeur and luxury, because truly, vehicles which bear the symbol of the Jaguar truly have a design that is unique to them, a signature that sets it apart. But through the release of the 2012 Jaguar XJ, the vintage and time-honored design that is unique to all Jaguar vehicles will become re-energized.
This latest addition to the long line of distinguished Jaguar vehicles also ensures the accommodation of more passengers than ever before while providing their prospective drivers with a unique driving experience.
Performance & Style
The 2012 XJ veers away from the tradition of making vehicles using heavy materials as it opt for lightweight aluminum as its primary material, with about half of it even made from recycled materials. The use of recycled materials, however, is not a ploy by the company to deprive their customers of the best materials, because the use of recycled materials actually reduces emissions from the vehicle while also improving fuel consumption.
Of course, the most obvious benefit of the use of lightweight materials in the creation of the Jaguar XJ is its added speed and agility when placed on the road through its powerful three-liter, V6 engine. And finally, another added feature of the 2012 Jaguar XJ is that it effortlessly combines new technologies into its media system in its interior while maintaining the timeless and well-loved signature style of Jaguar vehicles that has made them a strong force in the automobile industry.
