The XJ-Series serves as Jaguar’s classic line of luxury sedans. Despite the conservative styling, powerful engines lurk under the hoods of these vehicles. The 1995 Jaguar XJR provides a modified version of the XJ6. The supercharged 4.0-liter, six-cylinder engine proves so powerful that it actually outperforms the XJ12. The XJR offers the closest thing to sports car performance found in a Jaguar XJ-Series vehicle.
The luxurious interior of the Jaguar XJR features the same opulence found in the high-end XJ12. The sport suspension provides the XJR with a smooth, comfortable ride, even at elevated speeds. Layered on top of this, a luxurious interior rivals its competitors with ease. Almost every major luxury feature comes standard on the XJR.
The Jaguar XJR offers amazing performance and luxury. However, some drivers might question whether it makes the best choice. While superior to the XJ12, the XJR does not really offer that much over it in comfort or performance. In addition, drivers looking at the XJR might be more interested in a dedicated sports car with luxury accessories rather than a luxury sedan with a sports car’s supercharged engine.

As with the rest of the Jaguar XJ-Series, the 1995 XJR receives an increase in horsepower.
Measuring in at 197.8 inches long, the 1995 Jaguar XJR provides a fairly large sedan. The graceful curves provide a mix of modern design to the classic luxury feel of the XJ-Series. Fog lights, power heated mirrors, a power sunroof, and alloy wheels provide standard equipment. Despite the different model designation, the XJR looks identical to the XJ-Series sedans.
The Jaguar XJR comes equipped with the same luxurious features as the XJ12. Power leather seats, heated seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, air-conditioning, automatic climate control, an AM/FM radio, a cassette player, a CD player, a CD changer, and Harman Kardon audio create an enjoyable passenger experience. An overhead console, keyless entry, power windows, power locks, auto-dimming mirrors, cruise control, and a trip computer also make the 1995 Jaguar XJR just as enjoyable for the driver to operate.
Performance & Handling
The Jaguar XJR actually proves more powerful than the 6.0-liter, twelve-cylinder equipped XJ12. It shows a small but noticeable difference. The supercharged 4.0-liter, six-cylinder engine offers amazing acceleration and top speed with its 322-horsepower output. It corners extremely well. The sport suspension gives the 1995 Jaguar XJR a slight advantage over the XJ12 when operating at higher speeds.
Dual front airbags, traction control, and four-wheel anti-lock brakes provide standard equipment. Excellent maneuverability and phenomenal acceleration also allow the 1995 Jaguar XJR to avoid some accidents before they occur.
