"Jaguar has gone back to it's roots of elegance and performance and added up to date electronics."4.5 starson by sonyador
Pros: The design is simply elegant. The performance excellent and the electronics over the top.
Cons: The tranny /engine coupling does not seem instantaneous.
Summary: I have owned three Jaguars prior to this 2007 XK coupe. I moved on to Mercedes in 2000 because Jag's elctronics, GPS, performance and looks were dated. But this coupe brought me back to Jaguar. It is an absolute pleasure to drive. The electronics take a bit of time to learn but are well thought out. This car drives like a sports car with great reponsiveness. For the amount of power the gas mieage is good.I just love this car.Updated
I have driven the car 10,000 miles in 3.5 months and love to drive it. Some comments average gas mileage city and freeway is approx 21.5 MPG which is substantilly more than the c-net review. The only negatives at this time are: Gas tank is small approx. 16.5 gallons, there is tire noise, sound system needs upgrading and because of high profile tires a hard ride.
Positives are superb curb appeal , great body design, good performance, comfortable seats and so far no mechanical issues. Most fun I have had driving a car in years.
