Jaguar XK

Fuel consumption 9.1 – 14.1 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 65%(view ratings)
Searching for a vehicle with a GT personality or maybe the raging bull attitude of the XKR or XKR? If so, this is your last chance, as the F-Type drives the XK into retirement. The beautiful roar of its V8 (with 385, 510 or 550 horsepower) is available with rear-wheel drive only. The only available gearbox, a six-speed automatic, betrays the car’s age. Its reliability is also from another era and, in Jaguar’s case, this is not necessarily a compliment.

Test DrivesThe Jaguar XKR: The cat is out of the bag
Since its career began in 1920, the Jaguar brand has had moments of glory and moments of difficulty. Some 20 years ago, the noble English brand was bought by Ford, which was in expansion-mode at the time. Ironically, even though British dignity is about the last thing Americans could understand, …
