Family Reviews the 2012 Jaguar XJL

The 2012 Jaguar XJL isn’t a car built with families in mind. The five-seat sedan is about luxury and performance, and it masters those areas, says Family reviewer Courtney Messenbaugh. However, families can make the long-wheelbase XJL work for them if they’re willing to go with fewer items in the trunk. Courtney’s family lived without a few items that they couldn’t fit into the XJL because driving the V-8-powered car up mountain roads “provided more enjoyment than whatever it was we didn’t bring,” she says in her review.
