2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Kinda Stinky

July 27, 2012


After our beautiful Jaguar XF sits in the sun for a while, the interior gets a little ripe. At first I thought the alcantara was to blame but a close-up sniff tells me otherwise.

The culprit is the huge leather-topped dash. It doesn't exactly smell like feet wrapped in leathery burnt bacon, but it smells a lot like hot leather.

Just something to consider when opting for this much hide in a vehicle.
