Jaguar Reviews

New Cars
Good: Stylish and highly desirable two-seater is smaller and cheaper than the XK. Impressive performance from all engines. Sounds superb.
Bad: Very little luggage space. Shallow 196 litre boot becomes almost useless if space saver spare is optioned.
Good: Breathtaking good looks and outstanding handling. R model is brutally quick. Cabin is classy and comfortable. Boot is also usable.
Bad: Expensive to run. Ride can be rather hard. Infotainment system feels dated.
Good: New smaller Jaguar saloon that will be a strong alternative to the BMW 3 Series.
Bad: Not arriving until 2015.
Good: Wonderful and bespoke feeling interior. Amazingly quiet and refined. More economical 2.2 diesel from 2011. Sat nav as standard on most models.
Bad: 2.2 diesel may be economical but lacks performance. Very early cars suffered electrical gremlins.
Good: Good looking estate version of the XF. Gets self-levelling rear suspension as standard. As good to drive as the saloon. Usefully wide and square boot area.
Bad: 2.2-litre diesel has to be worked hard and doesn't have the performance you'd expect.
Good: Imposing looks and incredible attention to detail inside. Low emissions and affordable tax from 184g/km 3.0-litre diesel. Superbly refined and wonderful to travel in.
Bad: Poor rear visibility for reversing. Limited engine choice. High definition 'virtual instruments' can be difficult to read in strong sunlight. 20-inch rear tyres help roadholding but harm ride.
Good: Luxurious high performance sports car, sublime engines, top quality interior, sophisticated image, good level of standard equipment includes sat nav.
Bad: Rear seats are virtually pointless apart from use as extra luggage space.
Good: Good looks, wonderful exhaust note and excellent, fast-shifting 6-speed auto, revised interior from 2009 very stylish.
Bad: Small boot, ride on 20-inch wheels is too firm for most.
Good: Understated yet purposeful styling, stunning performance from supercharged V8, amazingly quick yet refined, XKR-S takes it into another league.
Bad: Only comes with an automatic gearbox, other high performance sports cars are more driver focussed.
