Looks terrific in Jaguar Racing Green. Supercharger makes satisfying whine while offering instant 400-hp response. Taut handling, eager brakes. Copious rear seat room will make Mercedes CLS owners cry.

Dislikes

Even though visually pleasing, it’s time for a redesign. Odd gray color to burlwood dash looks like plastic. Getting expensive.

Verdict

The perfect ride for an up-and-coming executive, three-year lease please. Still has visual panache, plus performance to match. If you need to own a Jaguar, of all the current offerings, this is the one.
