Jaguar XJ and golf in Iceland: XJ video test drive

Leaving aside the silliness of the Brits (going to play golf in Iceland at midnight as the pretext for a video), this test drive from Car shows us just what the Jaguar XJ can do both as a cruising limousine and as a fun-to-drive sports sedan.

The video is well done but apart from its visual production quality, we learn that Jaguar has managed to fit a sports suspension onto its limousine, giving it sharp handling while still keeping luxury finishes.

The Jaguar XJ is a competitor to such mighty models as the Mercedes S Class but it has a couple of things on its side that should give the German car a run for its money.

The XJ has a lightweight, aluminium chassis and therefore weighs about 240 kg less than the S Class.
While design is a subjective thing, Jaguar has nail its styling on the XJ, producing an elegant, modern and attractive saloon that will definitely compete with the superior German styling.
If you like golf, Jaguars and possibly the Icelandic landscape, check out the video.
