2009 Jaguar XF Supercharged

Just a beautiful, composed, powerful, lush car - the proverbial velvet fist. Power delivery is immediate as are the brakes, which are very nicely modulated.

The interior is beautiful. The navigation system/screen is a great example of how a touch screen should work. It's easy to find your way in, and has a one-touch "home" exit. I'm glad to see the proximity button for the glovebox works better now than on early production examples. The no-touch overhead lights likewise are less sensitive than Job One. The dial shifter has never annoyed me. The shift paddles move with the steering wheel and feel good. I love the steering wheel controls. The suspension sucks up bumpy road.

The A/C BLASTS, as does the Bowers & Wilkins sound system. This is a car fit for royalty.
