Jaguars have always been noted for style, comfort and luxury. We tell you why the MkX definitely fits the bill...
Despite a decent turn of speed in manual form, this isn’t a sporting Jaguar – it’s far too big for any B-road heroics. However, what it does provide in spades is superb comfort. A well-cared for example should start easily and run smoothly and quietly, with all the refinement you expect from the marque.
A neglected car will feel below par straightaway, and is probably best avoided unless you really are after a restoration project. On the road, that innate refinement shines through with a wonderfully cushioned ride and, while steering and brakes may not be the sharpest, they do contribute to a relaxed and stress-free driving experience.
A luxurious cabin adds to that sense of relaxation. It is both spacious and well-equipped and is a delightful place to spend time. The car is great for long journeys as a result of this comfort. Settling into the large leather seats and looking out over that vast bonnet is a fine experience, and there are few better saloon barges of the period if comfort is top of your agenda.
