Best XJ Yet!
By Lloyd on


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


We have owned XJ Jaguars since early 80s. We loved the exterior style; were non plussed about the performance; but, suffered the interior dimensions. At 6' 4" in height it was a challenge to fit myself into the driver's seat (not to mention two equally tall sons in the rear seats). Now almost everything has changed. This model is an extraordinary improvement. The interior is very spacious. More head room than even my height can use. A back seat that provides two 6' 2" gentleman with more than ample leg, shoulder and head room. Incredible handling and driving performance. It is fast, silent and smooth. All the while, it has retained the Jaguar elegance which we have always appreciated.

Best Features

Seats are incredibly comfortable (even the valet commented on it). Handling is superb (seems to anticipate your thoughts). Very fast (excellent weight to horsepower ratio). Plenty of interior room. Great sound system (standard).

Worst Features

Gear shift tends to catch on gear indentations when shifting. Larger review mirrors on outside. Side protection for inevitable dings.
