The company has combined this startling new look with a smorgasbord of engine choices, four of them, in fact. They comprise the now well proven Ford/Peugeot-designed 2.7 turbo diesel which is found also in Peugeots, Citroens, Land Rovers and Range Rovers; a 219kw naturally aspirated V8 petrol, and a supercharged V8 petrol.
Its interior is as fresh as its exterior with much use of brushed aluminum. A novelty is the transmission selector which is a rotary knob which rises out of the centre console when the car is started, and which is turned to select drive modes. It may sound odd but it works beautifully. Helping Jaguar get our accolade is the fact that the car has been priced well, in some cases embarrassing competitors.
