2012 Jaguar XF: Extravagant

April 9, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF

Cars with Alcantara-wrapped A-pillars and headliners don't come through the fleet that often, so I always tend to slightly fixate on the Jag's roof supports after I've slipped behind the wheel. This faux-suede has a rich look and feel, such that its use on the pillars seems silly, extravagant and perfect.

In some ways, our Jag doesn't look like its sticker price. And I love its profile specifically because it doesn't scream "$60,000 car." The acceleration and exhaust note handle that job just fine. But you still want it to feel lux inside, and the furry A-pillars are just one of the details that add up.
