Geoff Cousins, Managing Director, Jaguar UK commented: “As the BusinessCar Awards are decided solely by the readers of the magazine and website, it means the Jaguar XJ is a proven hit in the UK business market. Sales show it achieved segment leadership despite only going on sale in May 2010 and we’re delighted to add this award to its credentials.
“The XJ is our latest model and has brought a bold new approach to the luxury car market in the UK with its distinctive design, generous accommodation, exceptional performance and strong economy credentials.”
BusinessCar’s Editor Paul Barker added: “The stunning new Jaguar XJ is already proving its worth and appeal in the corporate marketplace, and deservedly takes the BusinessCar Award in what’s a very competitive sector.
“Jaguar’s targeted approach with the new car in the business car market is obviously paying off, as this reader-voted award proves.”
The all-new XJ completed the revitalized Jaguar product range in 2010. It is a landmark, flagship executive car and has already received more than 20 international honours including ‘Luxury Car of the Year’ from Top Gear (UK), ‘Best Luxury Car’ from China’s Auto News, ‘Annual Limousine King’ from Quattroroute (Italy), Automobile Magazine’s ‘2011 Design of the Year’ and ‘Best Executive Sedan’ at the Bloomberg Awards (US).
The new XJ is priced from £55,500.
