On the Road and in the Ring: The Audi A8 VS. Jaguar XJ

For the luxury vehicle driver, there are many options that offer style, comfort, and innovation. Both the Audi A8 and Jaguar XJ are great options. However, for the New Jersey driver seeking both elegance and performance, the Audi A8 comes out on top. Its iconic design and state-of-the-art features make the Audi A8 far superior to the Jaguar XJ.

The Trusted Sedan for New Jersey-New York Commutes

As a New Jersey resident, chances are you’re a regular workday commuter, meaning it is important to understand the performance capabilities of your vehicle. The Audi A8 gives you the power you expect with horsepower of 333 at 5300-6500, accelerating from zero to 60 in 5.5 seconds. The Jaguar XJ, on the other hand, offers little noticeable difference between the V-6 and V-8, except for the price.

Besides performance, you certainly want to consider styling. The Audi A8 is much subtler and more refined, with its single, bold grille and available 21-inch wheels, when compared to the Jaguar XJ. One of the highlights of the Audi A8 relating to passenger comfort is the size and relaxing vibe of its back seat. Whether you’re driving kids to school or carpooling colleagues to a business meeting in the city, no one will object to sitting in the back.

Safety and Driver Assistance: Comparing the Features

When you hit the roadways of New Jersey, you need to feel confident in your vehicle. Driver assistance systems enhance safety while reducing stress. Meanwhile, the Audi A8 offers radar technology to help increase awareness when changing lanes in congested driving, one of the most common causes of accidents. The Audi Pre-Sense is standard on all A8 models, which can autonomously close side windows and sunroofs while tightening seat belts should an accident or unexpected roadway incident occur. While the Jaguar XJ does have some driver assistance features, such as parking assistance, they don’t offer anywhere near the type of prevention or proactive approach to safety that the A8 does.
