Jaguar XK (2006 – 2015) Review
Jaguar XK (2006 – 2015) At A Glance
On average it achieves 104% of the official MPG figure
The Jaguar XK is the epitome of Jaguar at its best. It's a luxurious and comfortable sports car with great performance, a high quality interior and superb refinement. This is a real 'feelgood' car that, if you're lucky enough to afford, is always a real pleasure to drive with sublime engines.
It's a great grand tourer too with impressive long distance comfort, while the thundering V8 engine - originally a 4.2-litre but later upgraded to 5.0-litre unit with a storming 385bhp - provides the pace and rumbling sound you'd expect from a Jaguar. It may not be the most involving of two-seaters from behind the wheel, if compared to other high performance models like the Porsche 911, but the Jaguar manages to blend comfort and performance together into a very desirable model.
The XK was also the first Jaguar to showcase the modern and sharp styling that's now become a trademark across all its model - and one that's a world away from the traditional look that Jaguar had been associated with for so long. It's the same inside with a sophisticated and distinctive cabin that's finished beautifully.
In fact, there's very little to criticise about the XK. The boot is a little shallow and the rear 'seats' aren't really useable as seats at all, but this is a sports coupe after all. It also has a classy image which is a cut above other similarly priced two-seaters of this kind, while for even more style, there's the XK Convertible.
