2008 Jaguar XK Review

Note: This review was created when the 2008 Jaguar XK was new.

The XK coupe is a smooth-riding sports car that values comfort and luxury over power. Consequently, it can't match the 0-to-60 times of several rivals. It's handling dynamics, however, are exquisite.

Pros & Cons

  • Excellent handling with a smooth ride
  • Comfortable front seats and driving position
  • Sleek exterior styling is sure to turn heads
  • Redesigned interior features easy-to-use touch screen
  • Slower straight-line acceleration than some competitors
  • Poor sound quality from standard audio system
  • Small rear seats can't fit much more than cargo
  • Value over time is poor compared to rivals

2008 Jaguar XK Overview

The 2008 Jaguar XK coupe offers sports-car performance along with equally luxurious appointments, plenty of hi-tech goodies, and striking looks. Formerly the XK8, the XK was redesigned in 2007. The 2008 model is a carryover, with the exception of a new hidden audio antenna on the spoiler.

Though alluring, this new XK is far from perfect. Among the common complaints are cramped rear seats, a V8 engine that pales in comparison to some rivals, and questionable quality and reliability. With a base price of $75,500, the XK coupe isn't cheap either.

The 2008 Jaguar XK comes with a 4.2-liter V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. Though this review only addresses the two-door hatchback coupe, the XK is also available as a convertible and performance-tuned XKR trim.
