Jaguar XJ faces rough competition from its German rivals, the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and this is one of the reasons Jaguar is looking to apply a mild facelift to its flagship saloon.

Since the XJ was introduced in 2009, Jaguar thought it wouldn’t hurt if the luxury saloon received a refreshed version after almost six years on the job.

The British carmaker is preparing a minor facelift for the S-Class rival as spy-photos reveal the car undergoing final tests in the cold.

The test prototype is equipped with modified bumpers, a revised grille and full-LED headlights, together with new lights graphics for the front and rear lights.

Apart from that, we can’t really see other changes although the production model might encompass a few tweaks here and there.

Regarding engine options, it is likely that Jaguar will carry over the existing range while adding a plug-in hybrid version, as previewed by the Jaguar XJ E concept back in 2012.

The updated Jaguar XJ is expected to make a debut in March, at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.
