Jaguar XKR is a wonderful picture-like vehicle which demands a decent, but a bit overpriced cost. In coupe class it is rival to VW and Audi, but Jaguar has more sporty looks than its closest contesters.
Under the hood there is a 5.0-liter V8 engine, producing 380 horsepower. But it is the standard equipment of XK-series. XKR had come to production with some other standard specs: it boasts 503 horsepower which is achieved with the help of the supercharged version of the engine. It enabled the car to become more powerful, making 100 km pro hour in 4.8 seconds. That is how the fuel consumption has risen, too, but the powerful engine with its wonderful speed potential wholly compensates the drawback.
The handling of the car of this supercharged generation is very easy at turns. When the speed is very high, one can easily handle the vehicle while the steering is assisted by the system. As a result, the car is felt as very light and controllable, despite its impressive weight of it.
KXR-series is represented by a 2-door coupe, able to comprise 4 occupants. The cabin of the car has the spirit of previous classy models of Jaguar. That is why the cabin is rather posh. The interior is equipped with high-quality materials. There is leather upholstery and the amount of carbon-fiber effects on the trim is also considerable. The central console has some plastic elements but they look almost natural. On the whole, the design of the interior caters for the driver very well and the sporty versions of the vehicle are equipped with special piloting sets. On the other hand, as in all sport-oriented cars, the rear seats are merely an element of decoration: those who are going to occupy the rear seats must be prepared for a very uncomfortable ride.
The equipment of the car corresponds to the expectations of Jaguar-worshippers. The car nowadays has a special voice-control system, which is very easy to handle. It makes the ride comfortable and safe. The standard specs include all the possible amenities. But some argue that the audio system of latest generations is not balanced in the sound.
