I bought the XJL version of this car back in April 2011, all I have to say is Wow, I drive a lot, even after splitting the mileage between 3 cars I have put about 22k on this vehicle. If you get this car, you will get looks, not a day goes by when people stop and stare, especially when I first got the car, because people will trying to figure out what it was.
Over all the exterior is just beautiful, at night the chrome shines in a way that makes the car just look classy, could have used some fog lights lights at the lower part of the front end to give it a more aggressive look, but that is the only thing I can think of that would make the exterior nicer.
The interior follows the exterior, clean lines that go around the whole interior make the inside look and feel large. The seats are comfortable, and in the "L" version there is more then enough space in the back seat to have a UFC cage fight. The trunk is a decent size, you can fit 2 full size suitcases in it, its tight but doable. The dash and center console are wrapped with a high end leather mixed in with wood trim. The center console, is clean like the rest of the car, just a handful of buttons the rest of the features are accessed through the touch screen, this leads me to the worst part of the car. The touch screen, I have had a new cars with an integrated touch screen, none of them have the amount of lag that the Jaguar has, it looks great, but I just having to wait 2-3 seconds for the unit to respond. On the other side of that, its packed with features, I personally like streaming music from my phone with the blue tooth stereo.
Performance is great, its 400 hp, speaks for itself. Of course that amount of power would be useless without the amazing handling.
Overall I a in love, I have had a Cadillac, Lexus, Saab, infiniti and benz, nothing comes close to this car as far as styling and price....if you want to get noticed and just have a great dependable car, get the XJ and if you want the extra space get the XJL.
