2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Great Steering Wheel

May 17, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged

I really like the steering wheel in our long-term 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged, because it's not what you're expecting.

With a 470-hp, blown V8 under the hood, it stands to reason that the steering wheel would be an ultra-thick-rimmed piece, perhaps with raised portions at 10 and 2 and a dab of paint in the on-center position.

Instead, this slender-rimmed steering wheel is dainty and delicate in my hands. It's such a contrast to the indelicate yank when I floor the throttle in traffic, and I love that.
