For 2012, Jaguar has brought forward new exciting features for the XK Coupe, making it even more luxurious and comfortable, if you can believe that was even possible. The 2012 XK Coupe has been fitted with new, contemporary headlamps, LED running lights, and the front and rear fascia that have been slightly altered from previous years. Of course, the oval grille is one of the first things you notice as soon as you see the car. The exterior of the XK Coupe offers a new sleek figure surrounding an intricate interior of high quality leather and the latest electronic features. Speaking of the leather seats, not only are they vented and heated, they offer 12-way power adjustment so you are guaranteed to find a comfortable position!

Jaguar has given the XK Coupe a firm aluminum structure and a finely tuned suspension allowing this luxury car to have outstanding handling and a most comfortable ride. The aluminum keeps the vehicle extremely light so it responds well, handles itself with a great deal of composure and can take corners at high-speeds like they were made for it. Pair that up with an automatic adjusted suspension that prioritizes ride handling and comfort based on the situation and you have a ride that is smooth as silk. Add in the fact that the cabin is virtually silent and you have a dream come true!
Jaguar drivers will likely appreciate the gas usage of the XK Coupe, as it averages around 24 miles per gallon on the highway and 16 miles per gallon on the city. While this may not sound that great to some, it is impressive for this segment. The 2012 Jaguar XK Coupe is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 385 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired up with a standard six-speed automatic transmission, which may be the vehicle's only downfall, as some drivers prefer the control of a manual transmission.
The 2012 XK Coupe comes loaded with many new features on both the interior and exterior to maximize the style and comfort of the car. On the exterior, Jaguar enthusiasts will appreciate large 19-inch wheels, front and rear parking sensors, and a rear view camera for back-up visibility in those hard to see places. Additional safety features that come standard on this stealth vehicle include pre-collision safety system, tire pressure monitoring, emergency interior trunk release, electronic brakeforce distribution, stability and traction control, turn signal mirrors, cornering lights, engine immobilizer, dusk sensing headlamps, emergency brake assist and child seat anchors.
