Both the Phantom and XJ have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Phantom has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The XJ’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The Phantom has standard PostCrash, which automatically apply the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries. The XJ doesn’t offer a post collision braking system: in the event of a collision that triggers the airbags, more collisions are possible without the protection of airbags that may have already deployed.

An active infrared night vision system standard on the Phantom helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera and near-infrared lights to detect heat, the system then displays the image on a monitor in the dashboard and even aims one of the vehicle’s headlights in the direction of the person or object. The XJ doesn’t offer a night vision system.

Both the Phantom and the XJ have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras, rear cross-path warning and driver alert monitors.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom weighs 1488 to 1863 pounds more than the Jaguar XJ. The NHTSA advises that heavier cars are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Rolls-Royce Phantom uses regular unleaded gasoline (premium recommended for maximum performance). The XJ requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Phantom has 2.7 gallons more fuel capacity than the XJ (23.8 vs. 21.1 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Phantom has larger standard tires than the XJ (255/45R22 vs. 245/45R19). The Phantom’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the XJ (285/45R21 vs. 265/35R20).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Phantom has standard 21-inch wheels. Smaller 19-inch wheels are standard on the XJ. The Phantom’s optional 22-inch wheels are larger than the 20-inch wheels optional on the XJ.

Having a flat tire is dangerous, inconvenient and expensive. The self-sealing tires available on the Phantom can automatically seal most punctures up to 3/16 of an inch, effectively preventing most flat tires. The XJ doesn’t offer self-sealing tires.

The Phantom has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The XJ’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The Phantom has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The XJ doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Phantom uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the XJ, which uses coil springs in front. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Phantom offers an available adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Jaguar doesn’t offer an active suspension on the XJ.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Phantom’s wheelbase is longer than on the XJ:

The Phantom has a standard heads-up display that projects speed readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The XJ doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Phantom to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The XJ doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.
