These cars may have been updated for the 1998 model year, but they were still based on a very dated design. Many luxury car buyers complained that the Jaguar's interior was outdated and the rear legroom was much smaller than that of the competition, which included German car makers Mercedes Benz and BMW.
These cars still saw decent sales numbers, as some buyers prefer a car with that British sense of style.
These cars got an upgrade in 2002 with the introduction of the Mark 3 series X350, with a 4.2L V8 engine to boot. With an aluminum chassis, these cars were lighter than previous models and some of the competition.
Jaguar has given this car a new look for the 2008 model year. The XJ concept car introduced to the public in February of 2007 shows the design that will be
used in next years cars.
These cars are out there on the used car market, and for decent prices considering they are luxury cars that for the most part are under 10 years old. You can find the best deals online on sites like eBay.
