The 2016 Jaguar XJ, unveiled online in June, will be publicly displayed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show that starts on September 15, 2015.

The XJ facelift sees subtle exterior changes to differentiate itself from the current model. The update gets new LED head- and tail-lamps, redesigned bumpers and new alloy wheels. Interiors have also received some modifications such as new seat upholstery, 8-inch infotainment unit with Jaguar’s InControl Touch Pro system, a 12.3-inch instrument cluster with full-screen navigation and some design tweaks to enhance the premium factor.

The model that has been imported is the 2.0-liter inline, four-cylinder petrol model that produces 237 bhp and 340 Nm of torque. A revised 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine will also be available with the flagship update. This engine will develop 296 bhp and 700 Nm, which is an increase of more than 100 Nm from the previous unit. Both engines will be coupled to the existing 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.
