More Used Jaguar Coupe Reviews /All Jaguar Cars

When designing and building the 2012 Jaguar XKR-S Coupe, Jaguar thought of everything from the sporty yet elegant styling to the luxurious to cabin to unparalleled performance. Jaguar created the XKR-S to be a sports coupe with high performance output. It was given an updated suspension that automatically prioritizes the ride handling and comfort based on the precise situation. It was also given 20-inch wheels, more aggressive styling than the other trims, revised suspension tuning and a unique interior trim. The body kit also includes several pieces that are actually made from carbon fiber. As the XKR is a monster, the XKR-S is said to be a different sort of monster. It is one that can hang not only with those on the track, but also with those on the boulevard as well. This is a car that handles sharp corners like they are the straight road.

The XKR-S also adds a more powerful supercharged engine than its counterparts, the XKR and the XK models. This engine delivers a whopping 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque, so it can certainly hustle off the line and when merging. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. In addition to the upgraded suspension, a premium exhaust is included as well as an aero splitter with rear aero diffuser. Other things that come on the XKR-S, you will find a trunk mounted wing, heated only sports style seats, unique interior trim work, and an extensive aerodynamic body kit.

Don't expect any favors at the pump with this vehicle. The 2012 Jaguar XKR-S Coupe only returns 15 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. It is considered by Jaguar to be a rigid, devoted driver's instrument that brags a lot more than just vigorous power.

There is one package that is available to be put on the XKR-S Coupe. This package is called the Bright package. The package adds brightly polished wheels and a chrome exterior to the XKR-S. Other options that are available to the XKR-S include a heated windshield and a sports style steering wheel that is wrapped in faux suede.

As with the XK and XKR, the XKR-S has impressive safety features that you won't find standard on other vehicles, as well as some common and thoughtful ones. These include cornering lights, turn signal mirrors, pre-collision safety system, whiplash protection system in the front head restraints, electronic brakefroce distribution, emergency interior trunk release and tire pressure monitoring.
