2011 Jaguar XJ 5.0L V8 Portfolio First Drive

Beautiful nose. Don't like the side profile. In some ways, the side profile reminds me of that French Citrogen (spelling?). Interior looks good and the performance reviews are good. What do you think?

Looks like a Buick Lacrosse from the front and a Bentley Continental from the back....Doesn't seem to have its own identity

Pretty sure it's a nice car but it's a little ugly.

I like it. It is visually interesting, and the nose is unique. Good to see Jaguar designing sexy cars again.

Why did Geoff Lawson have to die? Grumble. Anyway, the XF doesn't look that impressive in pictures, but on the road, it looks like an Aston Martin for a third of the price. So I have my hopes for how the XJ will look on the road. The side profile view is really striking, long, flowing and flamboyant almost to the breaking point. I think it's quite feline in its shape.

I'm growing to like it having been brought up with the 'old' ones.

Best to see it in the metal- comes out here in April I believe.

It is ugly. It bears a striking resemblance to the Volvo S80 of the early 2000's (especially the front end). However, it has the most awesome 1,200 watt 20 speaker factory stereo system to be ever put in an automobile. I would love to hear it.
