Best Luxury Car - Jaguar XJ
24 January 2007
Despite the launch of a new Mercedes S-class in the past year, Jaguar's XJ still took the honours in this class.
There may not be many cars that qualify under the 'luxury car' heading, but that doesn't mean the competition isn't tough. In fact, at this level competition is arguably tougher than many other segments. For luxury car buyers things have to be just about perfect - and the XJ has been voted most perfect.
The British brand has always been popular with industry bosses and in the past year the 2.7-litre diesel version (launched in 2005) has proved popular with British business thanks to its 35mpg average, ultra-smooth refinement and low benefit-in-kind bills.
In the past year Jaguar has broadened the XJ's appeal by adding a long wheelbase version of the diesel aimed at chauffeur businesses - key players in the luxury car market.
