For The Jaguar XKR is stonkingly fast, and offers sports car sharpness and great looks. The supercharged V8 engine also sounds fabulous.
Against It’s expensive to buy and run, yet the interior feels cheap. The rear seats are so cramped that it’s effectively a two-seater.
What Car? says
The Jaguar XKR is hugely fast, but we’d be tempted to save a lot of money and stick with the entry-level model.

Target Price team says:
The Jaguar XK gets harder and faster as you move up the range. However, we reckon the entry-level model is the pick – it’s still fast, plus it handles beautifully and is significantly cheaper than the other versions.
If you want your XK to stand out even more, in addition to the usual range of Jaguar accessories, you can also choose from the Portfolio range, which includes items to improve the stereo as well as the way your car looks and drives.
Every Jaguar XK comes with a three-year warranty and three years’ roadside assistance. If your car can’t be repaired within four hours, Jaguar will pay for your onward travel or for you to stay in a hotel.
