Jaguar unveils enhanced XK range

Jaguar has unveiled the latest versions of its XK and XKR models at the Canary Wharf Motorexpo, with a number of visual enhancements added to the popular range.

Sales of XK models this year have increased by almost 20 per cent on 2006 and the latest revisions, which will reportedly deliver "an unrivalled blend of performance and luxury", are expected to build on this strong sales performance.

The XK’s improvements are visual only, with the most notable changes being revisions to the door switch packs, with a choice of aluminium or wood inserts, and a piano black veneer surrounding the instrument control panel.

Changes to the XKR mean that all buyers will now be offered 20-inch double five-spoke alloy wheels, Jaguar premium surround sound, a heated front windscreen and bright finish alloy pedals as standard.

Furthermore, both the XK and XKR will now be available with a range of options previously found only on the XKR SE, including polished five-spoke Cremona alloy wheels, a luxury sport interior theme and a high-performance braking system.

Geoff Cousins, UK managing director at Jaguar, commented: "The XK has already proven its credentials by winning various awards in the UK since its launch, including the coveted car of the year award from both Top Gear magazine and Auto Express magazine during 2006.

"With these specification enhancements, our customers can now benefit from a better equipped XK and an even stronger value-for-money proposition."
