More Used Jaguar Sedan Reviews /All Jaguar Cars

Jaguar has had a long time reputation for being unreliable. But that has since changed since Jaguar has added value, style and substance to the package. Their style has gone from feline to a bolder look. The new 2012 Jaguar XJL Sedan brings to the table of luxury sedans, a strikingly modern French look, ditching the old conventional look, with a German driving experience; all the while keeping the British touch and soul. Underneath the lavish looks of the XJL Supersport are aluminum body panels with an underlying aluminum chassis which allows for a lighter curb weight. This gives the XJL Supersport Sedan relatively agile handling with maximum efficiency and power from the lineup of other 5.0 liter V8 luxury sedans. While most luxury sedans are methodically put together with the most attractive details and intense designs, the XJL is set apart giving you the best combination of value, style, and dynamic affluence for the price.

ReviewitOnline Ratings are based on a number of factors including reputation, appearance, model age, engine & other comparative aspects.

The XJL Supersport gets its power from a 5.0L V8 engine with a supercharger which gives this luxury sedan exceptional horsepower and torque. This feature puts the XJL Supersport in league with some sports cars matching in speed and acceleration. Even though the XJL Supersport is massively powerful, it still manages to average around 20.5 miles per gallon, which is absolutely amazing for such a large and powerful luxury sedan.

Comfort seemed to be at the top of the list when Jaguar designed the XJL. You can drive and ride comfortably and in style in one of these luxury vehicles. The vastly sized cabin allows for some major leg stretching in both the front and rear seats. The XJL Supersport has rear seat fold down trays and a middle seat storage arm rest that can be lowered in order to divide the rear seat. There is a massive amount of storage compartments throughout the cabin, including a cigar holder that is lined in purple velvet. The cabin also holds an extravagant design style with detailed wood throughout the interior. The front seats contain heat, massagers and a bucket style for driver comfort. They also allow easy access to the 1200 Watt Bowers & Wilkins stereo system and an extensive touch screen that provides operation of most of the sedan's controls. The rear seats of this luxury sedan offer lots of room within the rear of the car with seats that both recline and massage the passenger at the same time for a most comfortable ride. The XJL Supersport also offers simple iPod integration and easy Bluetooth setup.
