The Jaguar XK is Jaguars’ award winning sports coupe as voted by “What Car”. You only need to look at the car itself to see why; the latest version boasts a 5 litre V8 petrol engine which produces 380bhp. The XK also has the usual level of refinement that you would expect from this brand with features such as cruise control, climate control, front and rear parking aids and a choice between the coupe and convertible. This is the greatest grand tourer of them all and is regarded by many as the car to beat. The new XK is great to drive and has been designed with passion by the engineers. The opulent design on the outside is also mirrored on the inside.
The styling of the XK has not changed that much as the designer clearly got it right the first time. The performance on the Jaguar XK never disappoints and it makes many owners of these cars wish they lived in Germany so they could exercise their chosen steeds properly. The range topping XKR’s 4.2 or 5.0 litre supercharged V8 thumps out between 420 and 510bhp and deals with 0-60mph in less than 5 seconds. The convertible version takes a little longer to get to 60mph but with the hood down, speeding around will not always be the order of the day.
The Jaguar XK is not just capable of doing the school run or the weekly shop, but it has to be said this car looks its best when it is cruising around the South of France or taking in the sites of Monaco.
So how does this car feel to drive? Comfort is always something Jaguar does well and this car is no different from any of the others. The car is comfortable and manages to make the longest journeys feel short.
The Jaguar has superb handling as you would expect from a car in this class. Jaguars of this nature have always had a personality which continues to live on in this model. This car is designed as a 2+2 and the running costs are very competitive in its class. The fixed servicing costs and long intervals of 10,000 miles or 12 months make this car a great economical option in its class. The fuel economy for the 5.0 engine is staggering for the amount of power you get. In mixed circumstances you will get 25.2 miles to the gallon, far beyond most other high powered coupes and convertibles.
