2010 Jaguar XK-Series Review

Coupe and convertible combine performance, comfort, and luxury

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Jaguar XK-Series is a luxury car available as a coupe or convertible in two trim levels: XK and XKR. Coming in rear-wheel drive, the base XK is propelled by a new 5.0-liter V-8 engine, while the XKR boasts a supercharged version of the same engine, both paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control.

The XK's luxury cabin and performance are exceptional, but with the XKR you can add features for superior performance, spectacular handling, and quick response. The convertible features fast drop-top operation. Fuel consumption ratings are disappointingly in the 16 mpg city / 24 mpg highway range.

New for 2010

For 2010, the Jaguar XK-series coupe and convertible receive significant changes, most importantly, new naturally aspirated and supercharged versions of the direct-injected 5.0-liter V-8 engine. In addition, a unique rotary-style gear selector is added to the XK. In terms of style, the Jaguar XK sports more aggressive exterior updates and more luxury upgrades in the interior. Finally, some formerly optional equipment becomes standard.

Essentials

Engines: 5.0L V-8, 5.0L supercharged V-8
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Body Styles: Coupe, Convertible
Trims: XK Coupe, XK Convertible, XKR Coupe, XKR Convertible

On the Outside

Among the exterior improvements to the Jaguar XK-series are new front and rear valances and new LED taillights.

From the Inside

The Jaguar XK's interior boasts a slick electronic gear selector, a premium stereo, leather, and automatic climate control. However, Jaguar's touch screen infotainment system is still rather clunky.

Driving Performance

The big news is that two new 5.0-liter V-8 engines replace the Jaguar XK's prior engine options, generating a respectable 385 horsepower for the XK trim and a hearty 510 horsepower for the supercharged XKR trim. The six-speed automatic transmission is smooth but has a sport setting for more exciting drives.

Safety Equipment

Standard safety features on the Jaguar XK-series include front, side, and thorax airbags for the driver and passenger, electronic stability and traction control, Corner Brake Control, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Emergency Brake Assist, and Understeer Logic Control. The convertible has pop-up rollover hoops.

Gas Mileage

XK Coupe: 16 mpg city/24 mpg highway
XK Convertible: 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway
XKR: 15 mpg city/22 mpg highway

Plusses

  • Impressive styling
  • New V-8 engines
  • Rocketing acceleration
  • Nimble handling
  • Luxurious, feature-laden interior

Minuses
