The Quattroporte has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The XJ doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

The Quattroporte 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 Quattroporte’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The XJ doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Quattroporte’s wheelbase is 5.4 inches longer than on the XJ (124.8 inches vs. 119.4 inches). The Quattroporte’s wheelbase is .5 inches longer than on the XJL (124.8 inches vs. 124.3 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Quattroporte is .3 inches wider in the front and 1.7 inches wider in the rear than on the XJ.

The Quattroporte’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the XJ’s (51.1% to 48.9%). This gives the Quattroporte more stable handling and braking.

For better maneuverability, the Quattroporte’s turning circle is .3 feet tighter than the XJ’s (38.7 feet vs. 39 feet). The Quattroporte’s turning circle is 3.6 feet tighter than the XJL AWD’s (38.7 feet vs. 42.3 feet).

The front grille of the Quattroporte uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The XJ doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The Quattroporte has a much larger trunk than the XJ (18.7 vs. 15.2 cubic feet).

The Quattroporte’s standard rear seats fold to accommodate long and bulky cargo. The XJ doesn’t offer folding rear seats.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Quattroporte’s trunk can be opened and closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The XJ doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its trunk, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

The Quattroporte’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The XJ does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The Quattroporte’s power window, power lock, power mirror and cruise control switches are lit from behind, making them plainly visible and easier to operate at night. The XJ’s power mirror switches are unlit, making them difficult to find at night and operate safely.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Quattroporte 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.

A power rear sunshade and rear side window sunshades are standard in the Quattroporte to help block heat and glare for the rear passengers. The XJ doesn’t offer rear side window sunshades.

The Quattroporte offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The XJ doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.
