TheCarConnection.com found most reviewers to be unashamedly enthusiastic about the features of the Jaguar 2008 XK.

The list of standard features is impressive: Kelley Blue Book's roster of notable standard features on the Jaguar 2008 XK includes tire-pressure monitoring; EBD; speed-sensitive variable-rate power steering; power windows, locks, and mirrors, keyless entry and start; dual-zone climate control; DVD-based touch-screen navigation; three-position memory system; Bluetooth wireless communications system; bi-xenon headlamps with power-wash and self-leveling; rain-sensing wipers; garage-door opener; Reverse Park Control; and Alpine six-speaker audio with a six-disc CD changer.

If that's not enough, J.D. Power says the XK Jaguar offers "an optional 8-speaker, 525-watt, Alpine premium sound system [that] has Dolby Prologic II surround sound." In addition, Sirius Satellite Radio is available. According to Kelley Blue Book, the Advanced Technology Package includes "Adaptive Cruise Control, Adaptive Front Lighting and Front Park Control," and one of their favorite features is the "seven-inch, menu-driven, full-color touch screen [that] lets you easily and intuitively select and control the DVD-based navigation system as well as elements of the climate, audio and telephone systems, and certain other vehicle settings, with minimal distraction."

"Sex appeal has always been a hallmark of the XK Jaguar," says Newcars.com, and the availability of 19- and 20-inch chromed and aluminum alloy wheels "only serves to enhance that image." They also praise the "rich, high-gloss burl walnut or poplar trim [which] adds classy ambience inside the cockpit."

In the limited edition Portfolio version of the XKR, Car and Driver says Jaguar has made "pretty much everything on the XKR option list standard -- including the softest of Jaguar's leather upholstery and the upgraded 525-watt surround-sound audio system." The XKR Portfolio also comes with "gorgeous Bowers and Wilkins aluminum-domed speakers."

Conclusion

Phenomenal options and features abound in the 2008 Jaguar XK.

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.
