XKR 100 Coupe First Impressions

Vehicle2002 Jaguar XK-Series XKR 100 2dr Coupe (4.0L 8cyl S/C 5A)
ReviewHigh performance, incredible luxury!
Tackles any road at crazy speeds.
Braking is outstanding, throttle
response especially quick, gas pedal
feedback too light. Engine is
smooth, quiet, very torquey.
Automatic trans is excellent; 6-speed
would be more fun! Steering is tight
and predictable, too insulated
from "road feel".
Recaro seats are spectacular. Buttons
are "Fordish", but intuitive.
Gas door/trunk release are too
easily bumped. Sound system is great,
needs in-dash CD player. Nav system
accuracy and capabilities are better
Overall: Far classier than anything in
its class. Interior luxury to match
exterior sexiness. A spectacular car!
Best FeaturesHead-turning, jaw-dropping good looks Impressive sports car performance Driver comfort and convenience Great Nav system
Worst FeaturesMove gas door and trunk release switches so they won't get bumped with left knee Augment Nav system with Compact Flash- type updates to program and nav data Make Nav system touch-screen instead of cursor-and-joystick Add in-dash CD to current stereo
