Jaguar claims that the petrol unit reaches the 100kmph mark in 7.9 seconds whereas the diesel unit is capable of reaching the 100kmph mark in 6.2 seconds.

Jaguar has also introduced the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) technology in the new XJ. The ASPC is a cruise control feature that will work at speeds as low as 3.6kmph, going upto 30kmph.
