2006 Jaguar XJ-Series XJR 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

This is a wonderful vehicle, that has excellent luxury and comfort and great performance. It probably needs more power, as standard luxury cars are getting into the horsepower and 0-60 range of this car. I understand that Jaguar can get 550 bhp out of this engine - what's stopping them. An R version of this car should go 0-60 in 4.5 sec or less. Other than these issues (and the car is incredibly fast, it just could go faster), the car is fantastic.


Favorite Features

The burled walnut on this car is heavenly - you find yourself just staring at it. The performance is great, the interior and exterior looks are top notch. Back seat is spacious. Great ergonomics: good cup holders and no confusing iDrive. Love the adaptive cruise control and power folding mirrors


Suggested Improvements

1 To compete in its class, this car needs more horsepower. It's fast but not wicked fast like the AMG Mercedes 2 Lack of dual sun-visors on drivers side is a saftey issue 3 Cooled seats, heads-up display and keyless-go would be nice 4 Better clothes hooks 5 Leaper should be touch screen default.

2006 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 L 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The moment I drove this car home I realized this is an amazing vehicle. The ride is an absolute joy and the power and acceleration are great. The finish both interior and exterior are superb and are an example of how well made these cars are. The navigator is easy to use and I love the big screen. A group of 5-6 fellows commented to my wife and I as we were getting in the car. What a cool car, we are just admiring and drooling over it. The jag does look sharp and luxurious.


Favorite Features

I love the back seat. Its like first class in a jet plane. The leaper and the grille give it class.


Suggested Improvements

Trunk space could be deeper, but how do you do that, maybe emt tires and not full size spare.

Review

I was very surprised at the increased room and comfort of this new body style while retaining the classic and timeless Jaguar styling.This car is gorgeous inside and out. Perfect fit and finish reflect the meticulous care that must have been used in the design and construction of this car. This car is truly excellent in every category I can think of and it is reasonably priced. It beats the competition by a mile!


Favorite Features

User friendly controls, numerous thoughtful details. Very smooth transmission and ride along with very good performance.


Suggested Improvements

Great as it is, can't think of a thing.

2006 Jaguar XJ-Series XJ8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The all new XJ with aluminum is without question the best improvement Jaguar ever made to this legendary car. Jaguar stands alone in looks for cars in this price range. This JAG turns heads.


Favorite Features

Improved interior space - aluminum design - leather stands up to daily use without getting that 'aged' look - air suspension - smooth transmission - plenty of HP - interior design - rear brake lights (awesome)


Suggested Improvements

Make it available in AWD - Trunk needs to get deeper - While the ride and noise is good, it should be great for a car in this range.
