When it comes to amenities the 2009 Jaguar XK has a giddy affect on most reviewers.
Kelley Blue Book's roster of notable standard features on the Jaguar 2009 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.
J.D. Power says the XK Jaguar offers, "an optional eight-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."
Car and Driver says that in the limited edition Portfolio version of the XKR, Jaguar has made "pretty much everything on the XKR option list is 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."
The 2009 Jaguar XK lacks nothing in terms of options and features, with a good mix of traditional luxury and modern conveniences.
