New Jag XJ

Nice, but why did they use a cavalier front end?

I'd rather have it's twin, the Aston AMV8.

Re: New Jag XJ

The grill looks like it's off a Taurus. The rear looks too much like a Z4

I thought the rear looked like a Cougar.

Re: New Jag XJ

I agree, the Jag is a little disappointing and the Aston very attractive. The Jag is a lot more practical in bootspace and interior room (the new Aston V8 is a two seater only) and it takes a toll. The Aston will be at a price premium over the Jag, as you would expect.

Change is as good as a rest!

Boot space, backseat, meh. Guys who buy these cars probably own an SUV too.

Re: New Jag XJ

Well, the owners require space for golf clubs and to give a guest a ride when they're out with SO already. That's the market, it's not a sports car, just a sporty car.

Change is as good as a rest!
