Expert Quotes:

...Makes the competitive German products look positively Amish...
Wall Street Journal

...The 1,200-watt (15-channel) Bowers & Wilkins upgrade with 20 yellow-cone Kevlar speakers sprinkled throughout the cabin will surely send you straight to the otologist – yes, it sounds as good as it reads on paper.
Autoblog

The central touch screen is painfully slow; I have no programming training whatsoever, and I could teach myself to write code in Farsi in the time it takes to adjust the stereo volume.
Jalopnik

Why not give the driver several gauge cluster designs to toggle among?
Car and Driver

...Ingenious, engaging and informative, advantages that more than make up for its faint aura of cheapness.
Inside Line

Jaguar offers the 2011 XJ in four versions: as a base $72,500 XJ; as the $79,500 XJL; as the $90,500 XJL Supercharged; and as the luscious $112,000 XJ Supersport (with a $3000 surcharge for the long-wheelbase Supersport.)

Among the standard features in the new 2011 XJ are the big panorama sunroof; an AM/FM/CD/DVD/MP3/HD/Sirius/30GB hard drive audio system; USB connectivity and Bluetooth stereo audio; a navigation system with voice control; and automatic climate control. The XJL versions add a four-zone climate control; all cars get ventilated front and heated rear seats, while massaging front seats and ventilated rear seats are standard or available on all versions.

The most impressive option—aside from custom trim options for the interior—likely will be the 1200-watt Bowers & Wilkins audiophile system. It's an orgy for technophiles--and superior in its class, up with the Bang & Olufsen system in the Aston Martin Rapide for its sonic and visual impact.

Maybe the most important feature is Jaguar's new premium owner care. The company pays for everything you'll use except gas and tires for the first five years or 50,000 miles--and extends the same coverage to buyers of other new Jaguars, too.

 

 

Conclusion

iPhone connections, Bluetooth and distinct wood and leather trims make up for some cutting-edge tech left on the cutting-room floor.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
