  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Lovely. Like all Jags, quiet after the initial noisy diesel start, then it's quiet when driving with 6 speed gearbox. Ride just right, not hard like a BMW.

    What's it like to park?

    Parking sensors make it ok.

    New clutch needed but its 80,000 on clock and for the 2.2d its normal. SO be aware. Its been happy motoring since.

    Split seats at back which fold fully forward.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Auto lights, so I don't get a flat battery
