Putting the Performance Back in the Performance Sedan

  • 3.0L Supercharged V6 Engine
    • Horsepower: 340 hp
    • Torque: 332 lb-ft
    • 0 to 60 mph time: 5.7 Seconds
    • Drive Options: Rear-Wheel Drive or All-Wheel Drive
  • 5.0L Supercharged V8 Engine
    • Horsepower: 470 hp
    • Torque: 424 lb-ft
    • 0 to 60 mph time: 4.9 Seconds
    • Drive Options: Rear-Wheel Drive
  • Upgraded 5.0L Supercharged Engine
    • Horsepower: 575 hp
    • Torque: 517 lb-ft
    • 0 to 60 mph time: 4.2 Seconds
    • Drive Options: Rear-Wheel Drive

While the A7 reaches the same horsepower in the base trim, the XJ offers more horsepower and torque in every other trim level, as well as more base trim torque. On top of that, an electronic active differential (a feature not found in the A7) provides precise control of the XJ's power.


Navigate Schaumburg with Confidence

Both Audi and Jaguar are known for their excellent build quality, but there's always a chance that a problem could occur over the life of the vehicle. That's why Jaguar gives you a more extensive warranty than Audi:

  • Basic: 60 month/60,000 miles
  • Powertrain: 60 month/60,000 miles
  • Maintenance: 60 month/60,000 miles
  • Accessories: 60 month/60,000 miles

Unfortunately, Audi can't match Jaguar's coverage in these areas. If an issue comes up after the Audi A7's warranty has expired, you're out of luck.
