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. Navigation as standard on most models.
Bad: 2.2 diesel may be economical but lacks performance. Early XFs suffered electrical gremlins and high number of problems generally.
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 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. Good level of standard equipment includes navigation.
Bad: Rear seats are virtually pointless apart from use as extra luggage space.
Good: Good looks. Wonderful exhaust note. Fast-shifting automatic. Revised interior from 2009 very stylish.
Bad: Small boot. Fide 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.
