Jaguar’s next-generation XJ luxury sedan will incorporate design features from the C-XF concept first shown at Detroit, AutoWeek has learned.

Although prototypes captured by spy photographers are disguised with BMW-style grilles, the face of the new 2010 XJ will feature Jag’s gaping square grille and a curvaceous body with a rakish, coupelike rear window. The final XJ incorporates slim headlights with double-projector lenses that are very close in design to those revealed on the dramatic C-XF shown at the 2007 North American International Auto Show.

Industry sources report that the xenon lights previewed on the C-XF weren’t ready for production in 2007, so they couldn’t be incorporated into the XF, the midsize sedan that arrived soon after the concept. But now, that technology is production-ready for the XJ.
