The bundles of features made standard on the 2011 Jaguar XK and XKR coupes and convertibles make for a more streamlined ordering process than you'd experience with, say, the endlessly configurable Porsche 911.

The basic XK coupe comes with power windows, locks, and mirrors; leather upholstery; a navigation system; cruise control; Bluetooth audio; 19-inch wheels; keyless entry and push-button start; a heated, tilt-and-telescope steering wheel; and a 525-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound audio system with Sirius Satellite Radio, a six-CD changer, and USB port.

A well-insulated, quick-folding fabric top is standard on the XK Convertible, and it includes power rear quarter windows. 

The XKR stocks all these features standard, with the addition of 20-inch wheels and different wood or metallic trim.

Jaguar limits options to a very few ultra-high-end add-ons. HD Radio is an option, as are active headlights.

Jaguar was a step ahead of the in-car infotainment wave when it opted for an LCD touchscreen instead of roller-controller dials to run its navigation, climate and audio systems. We still love the idea of the Apple-like swiping, but the XK's screen can be fussy, slow to change screens and slow to recognize a touch. Just as flawed is some outdated mapping, which could leave the choicest sections of empty, curvy pavement off your personal radar.

 

 

Conclusion

It's stuffed to the gills with standard features, but we'd give the Jaguar XK's touchscreen controls a touch-up.

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.
