Review of the 2003 Jaguar XJ-Series

  • The XJ8 is authentically Jaguar: big outside, small inside, filled with supple leather and lustrous wood, but somewhat outdated. Wait a year for a far more technologically advanced flagship Jaguar sedan to fill its shoes.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful supercharged V8 engine, aggressive yet seductive look, sport-tuned suspension.

  • Cons

    Classic British interior might be too cramped for some people, aged chassis and structure.

  • What's New for 2003

    In its final year of production, the current-generation XJ receives two new packages. XJ8s have the option of the Sovereign Package, offered with an Alpine premium sound system and six-disc changer, heated front and rear seats, wood and leather steering wheel and gearshift knob, boxwood-inlaid walnut trim, chrome grille and splitter, chrome mirror caps and door handles and special wheels. Meanwhile the XJR can be optioned with the R1 Performance Package, which includes Brembo brakes and 18-inch modular wheels.

Vehicle: 2003 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 5A)

This is the 7th jaguar I have owned, all have been great cars. This one the XJ8 seems to be the best to date, all round flexibility in comfort in town and highway. I do not think anyone could overdrive this car, it sticks like glue and goes where you point it. it never fails to get comments on its looks, It truly is in a class of its own.
