A little more modern than the old one!

Yes, it looks very modern, nothing resembling the current XJ. Interesting.

It looks like a fucking Hyundai.

Looks a lot like a Citroen C6 mixed with a big Volvo.

Looks like a 90's Dodge Intrepid mated with an Audi.

What's with the Maybach rear end tail lights?

I really dislike the new jaguars. Nothing unique about them anymore.

The XK is a far better re-design. It's perfectly right for Jaguar to modernize its styling, but sometimes they are too brash about innovating with respect to ornamentation. The worst offenders are the headlights. They're randomly scalloped and scooped, for not clear reason at all. The overall stance and shape of the XK is beautiful; but little details like the headlights detract from it. In comparison, the new XJ is just way too bloated, regardless of the ugly jewelry it's wearing.

I like the 2009 XJ better.

I really didn't think I was gonna like it but it actually looks pretty good. Looks alot better then all the other 4 door saloons. This is what the Aston Martin Raptide should have looked like.

Still I love the early series 1 and 3 of the XJs.

This looked like it tried too hard to be a Maserati/Maybach and ended up becoming a Nissan Maxima.

Is nothing sacred, for fucks sake, sheesh to kill a design classic that is just gold like this.
auto execs rank in the same league as people destroying monumental architecture to build mc mansions.

The front grill must have been left over from a Buick LeSabre.

Everyone keeps saying this yet no ones was buying them anymore. I hate to see the old style go away as well but there are a million of them still on the road if I really want a classic XJ. I am glad Jaguar is moving forward and all the new cars are fantastic.

Me I'm getting the new XKR. Make sweet love to that car.
