If you didn’t make it to this year’s Shanghai Motor Show, you likely missed getting your first, albeit brief, look at the all-new 2010 Jaguar XJ sedan. Almost, anyway, for you’re getting a sneak peek here on TheDetroitBureau.com.
The much-anticipated update of Jaguar’s flagship is arguably one of the most important products the company has ever developed. The current model has been less than well received owing to the controversial decision to essentially maintain the classic XJ design language. The result was a car that was lighter, roomier, faster and more dynamic than ever, but which looked all but identical to the models that had come before.
Jaguar isn’t about to make that mistake again, it seems. The ’10 sedan will aim to recapture the reputation Jaguar once had for low, long and lean sports car design. You’ve already seen some of the basic styling cues on the recently-launched XF midsize sedan and the XK sports car, before it.
