Made for Road Trips.
Added: 10th of August 2020
I've owned this 2010 XKR for just over a year. I purchased this in 2019 with 9700 miles. I sold a 2006 XK8 convertible at that time. The 5.0 liter XKR has all the power I ever dreamed of and there is no comparison in this department to the XK8. When down, the convertible top is completely hidden, but the trade-off is that the 2010 has virtually no trunk space to carry luggage whereas the 06 XK8 had a very large trunk. Another issue is that the sensor in for the adaptive cruise control seems to get blocked or stops regularly. This happens on perfectly dry days out on the freeway and then it won't work until I stop, and start the car again. With that all being said, this car is a blast to drive with it's adaptive suspension, dynamic, and sports mode. I rarely use the paddle shifters, but they're fun to have on board. The engineering and design of a jaguar are very hard to beat and the car looks and feels luxurious. From a design standpoint, the only failure was the inclusion of the worthless back seats. This area could have been put to better use as a simple storage area. Gas mileage on the XKR is stays right around 23 mpg on the freeway as opposed to my '06 XK8 which got between 26-29 mpg on trips.
