Pros This, our third standard XJ in 28 years, is evolutionary only in its continued grace and performance. It's otherwise a new beast with a truly stunning XJL interior, authoritative performance with exhaust tones to match, precise handling, up to date elect
Cons The only thing slow in this car is the screen display. Since steering is quick, I would like to have lane drift warning and a grab handle for the right seat passenger.
Summary You gotta drive the standard Jaguar XJ if you are looking at cars at its price point. Edmunds describes it as a bargain.
Pros I personally challenge you to test drive it...
Cons Too soon to know.
Summary the best combination for under the radar class and power.
Pros Technology means that many cars have almost inseparable performance, BUT there is something about a Jaguar which other brands would love to emulate but never quite match!
Cons It would be nice if there was some small gesture made towards the diminishing resource of fossil fuels, but on the other hand, why would you compromise when designing a Jaguar?
Summary If you like Jaguars, you'll love it. If you believe (and why would you?) that Germans can build the "ultimate driving machine" tjhen you'll miss the point.
Pros The CNet reviewer summed things up well. After four two seater German sports cars I was ready to retire into a smoother, quieter, more elegant ride that a second couple could share. This car delivers in spades.
Cons Navigation, bluetooth interface and the gauge quality each need improvement. The need to "accept" the nav warning each time becomes a drag. The software was recently upgraded (with no instructions as to how to use it) but still needs further work.
Summary The 6 speed transmission is just fine since the paddle shifts are as fast as any of the competitors, and better in many respects than the dual clutch transmissions. The car is FAST and fun to drive, but not for a race track. Perhaps the best feature of the car is that its looks are stunning, both inside and out. That's what won my wife over and took us away from the S-Class and A8. Our friends love the rear seat room, the drop down tables, the heated and cooled seats, a rear sunroof, side and rear window shades, plus two separate climate zones (all for the rear seats!).
Thanks for your submission!
