Jaguar Reviews

Jaguar

Taking its cues from the swift South American feline for which it was named, Jaguar produces agile, muscular cars that have, at times, been known to let out a ferocious roar of speed and power. Once famous for its reserved looks and old school styling, Jaguar's fleet now boasts bold lines and sleek exteriors that reflect the high-performance engineering of these luxurious English automobiles. In 2008, Jaguar Land Rover PLC was acquired by the Mumbai-based Tata Motors from the Ford Motor Company, although the carmaker retains its headquarters in Coventry, England.

Jaguar XJL Supercharged
This swift luxury sedan improves upon the already-excellent Jaguar XJ with the addition of a 470-horsepower supercharged V8 engine. However, with a base price of nearly $90,000, a seat behind the wheel of this queen of the cats doesn't come cheaply.


APRIL 2010

Jaguar XJL
With swift, feline lines and a muscular 385-horsepower V8 engine, the new Jaguar XJ is one ferocious cat. However, with its smooth handling, sumptuous leather interior, and high-quality Bowers & Wilkins audio system, this luxury sedan proves that it is perfectly comfortable toeing (or perhaps pawing) the line between sportiness and sophistication.

For those looking for the ultimate in luxury performance, the XFR provides plenty of power with a supercharged V8 engine that catapults this sleek sedan to 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds. Inside, the XFR's 440 watt Bowers & Wilkins entertainment system proves that this cat has more than one way to roar.


SEPTEMBER 2009

Jaguar XKR Convertible
This luxurious convertible combines high performance with high class for a ride that is both refined and remarkably fast. Although the XKR's well-equipped interior may remind you of that of a full-sized sedan, this is one agile cat who loves to sprint, rocketing from 0 to 60 in just 4.6 seconds.

Jaguar XF Supercharged
Loaded with a 420-horsepower, supercharged V8 engine, this sporty sedan screams to 60 mph in approximately 5.1 seconds.

OCTOBER 2007

Jaguar Super V8
This luxurious sedan boasts a 4.2L supercharged V8 engine, an extensive list of safety features and Jaguar’s notable CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension) system. Its smooth ride will make you want to offer to drive, and its spacious interior means anyone lucky enough to come along will lounge comfortably.

Jaguar XKR

Jaguar XKR
With an additional 120 horses over the regular XK, the supercharged XKR makes Jaguar's stylish coupe and convertible a serious performance machine.

Jaguar XK
The long-awaited replacement to the iconic XK8 arrives with fresh new looks and serious performance abilities. Available as a coupe and convertible, the XK is a fashionable GT good for bombing through mountain roads and cruising Rodeo Drive.



AUGUST 2005

Jaguar SV8 Portfolio
This addition to the XJ line-up comes in trippy colors such as an iridescent black cherry, has a warm American black walnut interior with extra supple leather seats, has wheels with a retro Jaguar logo and is built in a Long Wheel Base platform that is five inches longer than a standard XJ.


JULY 2005

Jaguar XKR
For this car, the engineers at Jaguar put their heads together and decided to give birth to a thoroughbred reminiscent of the cat-adorned brand’s golden racing days. While this car looks good cruising around distinguished neighborhoods, you can only get a full appreciation of this magnificent automobile on a racetrack.



MAY 2005

Jaguar S-Type R
You’re not going to get a cushy and soft ride here, but if you are looking for speed and handling, then we guarantee that you won't be disappointed with this animal. The price will be the determining factor but as far as sports cars go, we give this one the green light.


APRIL 2005

Jaguar Super V8
With the Super V8 you get more of any and everything you could want—more DVD screens, more access to audio components, more leg room, more climate control zones, more sun shades, and for you motorheads, more horsepower and more braking power.



MARCH 2005

Jaguar X-Type 3.0 Sportwagon
The car handles effortlessly due to the all-wheel-drive mechanism, brakes well and is totally easy to drive. Overall, it’s a tame kitty that offers comfort and safety, and it looks cool in the driveway or in the supermarket parking lot, much cuter than a mammoth Hummer anyway.


FEBRUARY 2005

Jaguar X-Type 3.0
So far Jaguar has been very successful in attracting new customers with this product line. On the road or in the city, the car is a no-brainer: easy to get around, comfortable even with the sport-tuned suspension and easy to park. Soon a Bluetooth technology package will be available.

Because it is compact, the car is quite nimble in the city and a charm to maneuver. On the highway, it is quite stable and corners admirably.



NOVEMBER 2003

Jaguar XJ Vanden Plas
Every few years we experience a leap in technology. The 2004 model in the Jaguar XJ series is one of these landmark moments. Think Jaguar and luxury all you want, then think again.
