Sleek, luxurious, spacious and sporty, the new XJ is being heralded as the absolute epitome of what an executive model should be and is expected to be the land barge of choice for those able to afford its £53,775 - £90,455 price tag and discerning company heads, lured away from the prestige German equivalents.
Bless the XK, it’s been a firm favourite of mine for the past 5yrs, stunning to behold, powerful yet controllable and captivating to both drive and be a passenger in. I just love its low slung ‘on-the-prowl’ aggressive styling and punchy performance. You could be forgiven for thinking that the 2010 model line-up for XK hasn’t actually changed, but you’d be wrong, very wrong.
Jaguar continues its quest to show its rivals a thing or two about how to make the ultimate luxury exec model and has again this year snaffled ample sales to prove it. Its latest offering set to claw the admittedly handy 530d right where it hurts is the rather excellent spanking new 275bhp 3.0L V6 Diesel S XF. Great levels of luxury, grunt, drivability, comfort and sportiness, all combined with a Kanye ‘I’m gonna let you finish’ West kick arse attitude and aggressively styled look.
