All of the classic Jags have narrow footwells. It's because you're sitting next to the transmission and not over or behind it. So, yes, the XJ sedan has narrow footwells as well. I am tall and have large feet, but honestly never found it to be a problem.Did those sedans also have stupidly narrow footwells, or is that an XJS thing?

Of course, that's caused by the fact that the fat part of the transmission bellhousing is directly to the left of that brake pedal, under the sheet metal. When the platform was designed transmissions that could handle the power of the available engines were large and had large bellhousings, so that's what they ended up with.
