A fantastic car that could be even better
By John on


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


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.

Best 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

Worst Features

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.
