The 2013 Jaguar XK is a Thrilling Sports Car

Jaguar has been at the forefront of sports cars but some of the company’s cars stand out above the rest. The 2013 Jaguar XK is one such vehicle that I feel people should take a look at. This is a vehicle that offers an attractive design and several special features that make it a little more unique over all other options on the road.

Power in the Hood

The engine in the 2013 XK is the first feature to take a look at. This engine has a 5.0L V8 system. It has 385 horsepower as well. This is made to make the vehicle work quickly and effectively for all of the needs that you might have when driving.

The engine goes very with the brakes on the vehicle. It has four-channel brakes and a stability control feature. It also uses a six speed automatic transmission to make the vehicle move around quickly and effectively. It’s all made to get you from one point to the next as quickly as possible.

It is very easy to see things around the body of the car. The 2013 XK has a strong auto-dimming design on the mirrors to make the vehicle easy to see out of at night. I appreciate this because it means that there’s no need for me to deal with problems involving glare when driving at night. I don’t have to use the high-beams all the time either.

The headlamps also use the Active Front Lighting feature. It is used to get the headlamp to bend around in the direction that the car is steering at. It is a brilliant feature that I particularly liked out of the vehicle.

Inside Features

The inside of the XK has a few special things that make it different from the rest. The XK has two zones in its climate control system to cool off or heat the inside of the car as needed. It also uses an instrument panel on the center of the dashboard that is well lit and allows the user to handle several controls on a touch screen. It gets the vehicle to work well and to run properly without issues involving what might go on in the vehicle.

There’s even a Winter Mode feature that comes with the vehicle. This inside feature is used to make it easier for you to keep your car on the road even in some of the tightest conditions around a spot. This includes spots that have too much snow and other obstacles in an area. The engine and transmission can be adjusted to make sure that the vehicle is adjusted the right way and makes the vehicle run the right way.
