  • If you absolutely, positively needed to carp about Jaguar's XKR, I suppose you could complain that the seat bolsters don't react automatically to lateral g-forces.

    Since we introduced our long-term Jaguar XKRin last month's issue, we've put nearly miles on the blown feline, stilla cross-country.

    Back when some of the more senior Motor Trend staffers started in this business, the running gag was, if you wanted a Jaguar coupe, you'd.

    Since we introduced our long-term XKR in last month's issue, we've put nearly miles on the blown feline, still a cross-country trip away from completing the mile break-in period, during which Jag strongly recommendsagainst racing or track testing. Thus, we've yet to acquire initial test numbers, so look for those within the nexttwo updates. So far, every editor who's spent time in the supercharged coupe has been "blown away" sorry for thepun , certainly more so than with the naturally aspirated XK we had prior.

    Unfortunately, the XKR also is quicker at guzzling fuel, delivering just We do expect fuel economy to rise once the engine has loosened up.

    Great trip away to Desert Hot Springs, Joshua Tree and Amboy, with lots of freeway and twisty road driving which I felt the jag handled beautifully, in much comfort and with heaps of class.

    Exterior is a crowd stopper and I was told how beautiful the car was many times over a couple of days. The exterior is stunning and I don't think it has a bad angle for photographing and I particularly like it with the bigger wheels. The interior, while much better than the last XK we had, still leaves me feeling that something isn't quite right with all that flat grey leather on the dash.

    It's also strange having two different sized cup holders in there. Emergency brake has to be engaged manually but disengages automatically which also feels strange. It doesn't feel quite like an older man's car now but it still doesn't feel like a true sports car inside either.

    The annoying nav problem in the last XK which involved having to touch the screen in a sequence of five windows has now been rectified and to get a full screen nav now you just touch the screen anywhere on the map and hey presto! Makes the whole thing easier to operate. Annoying seat belt retainer with magnetic closing device doesn't work well. Belt slips out all the time and any movement while in the seat makes the thing clack loudly!

    When refueling the gauge has twice so far, not shown "FULL" for at least ten minutes. From filling up at Barstow to downtown Los Angeles I averaged 71 mph at a noted fuel consumption of around 27 mpg.

    Pity the city cycle doesn't come close. Last I looked it was around 12 mpg. After getting back to LA very smoothly with no sign of trouble, the engine warning light came on the following morning causing some consternation even though there was no sign of any trouble whatsoever.
