2003 Jaguar XJ-Series Super V8 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl S/C 5A)
I traded in a 2003 XJ8 Sovereign for this 2003 SuperV8. I needed the extended wheelbase and extra rear seat leg room. The Super has a few more bells and whistles including a plusher seat package. The main difference is the supercharger. It really brings the V8 to life. The standard engine has plenty of power, this just puts it over the top. Very comfortable, the SuperV8 has a bit stiffer suspension than the standard models but it is still very smooth. The Alpine sound system is superb.
The exterior looks. The handling and performance of the CATS active suspension. The car can corner like it is a two seat roadster. The overall build quality.
Cup holders are very sub-par. Yes the car is a luxury vehicle, but if cup holders are offered they should be good ones. The DVD navigation should be offered with yearly updates to the maps.
