After sticking to the same design recipe for more than four decades (from 1968 to 2009), Jaguar shook things up in 2009 with the launch of the X351-codenamed XJ.
Now, four years later, Jaguar wants to refresh the current generation XJ and keep it relative in a segment that has seen a number of fresh arrivals the past year or so, including the all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the facelifted Audi A8, BMW 7-Series, Lexus LS and Porsche Panamera.
The styling tweaks (at least on this specific prototype) seem to be very mild and concern the smoother-looking front bumper with less contours that gains new trims and re-shaped air-inlets, and the restyled rear bumper. The lights on both ends remain unchanged.
We can’t see what’s going on inside or under the hood, but expect some minor improvements in both areas, with the subtly refreshed XJ saloon to likely launch sometime next year.
