Jaguar XF's Calling Your Name

Upscale Sports Sedans: The 2009 Jaguar XF is a sensorial overload of extreme pleasure gushing unabashedly from both sides of the brain in unison to a thunderous crescendo, a symphony inspired by overwhelming approval of both lobes. The XF is ecstasy to connoisseurs of deluxe amenities inside and out. Its arrival at any scene is a clarion call that announces the owner's arrival as well.

The Jaguar XF also is a performer with a supercharged all-aluminum constructed lightweight 4.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 420 brake horsepower (bhp). Additionally, there is a 300-bhp engine with 300 bhp available sans the roto-type supercharger. The ZF six-speed automatic transmission with F1-style paddle flippers gives a driver the option of auto or manual shifting. The supercharged engine accelerates from zero to 60 mph in an estimated 5.1 seconds with a 08 pound- to-torque ratio.

What Car?, which is among Britain's largest car-buying guides, named the Jaguar XF its "Car of the Year" and "Best Executive Car" for 2008. The XF sedan took on Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz and took first prize in a category generally taken by the aforementioned automakers.

The Ian Callum-designed vehicle stands out poignantly with its mesh grille and windscreens. The XF's aerodynamically correct design improves overall handling and performance, which goes well with the car's electronically controlled top speed of 155 mph. This is a luxury sedan with substantive detail spent equally on luxury features and performance. There is a luxury, a premium luxury, and a supercharged version of the XF.

"Lushly refined" and "calmly sport" are snippets directly from What Car? in summarizing the Jaguar pedigree. The XF holds true to tradition while firmly establishing itself as a sports sedan appointed lavishly with audiophile-acceptable sound system options, exotic woods, and supple and stitched-leather interiors.

The push-button start is bleeding-edge technology. It feels as if the car comes to life from a driver's touch. The vehicle's ability to analyze and adjust itself road conditions and en clement weather is most impressive. The suspension offers dives, sports, winter and dynamic settings. The winter mode maximizes safety. Optional features include an advanced-vision package, a cold-climate package, and a navigation package.

The song featured in promoting the Jaguar XF, "Hush" by Deep Purple tells prospective buyers that this Jaguar is definitely calling their name -- and it is with good reasons that a well-informed upscale consumer would hastily heed this notification.
