    I have had the privileged of driving many luxury cars. In fact, we're shocked at how reliable both Jaguars have been we owned a XJ6 Sovereign a few years ago. The paint work gleams; it has no rust or dents apart from the odd bit of lacquer lifting; looks as good as new in the right light. Lots of costly repairs and poor mileage. A nifty shifting, electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission helps enable the 4,pound car to deliver 23 m.

    Never mind that dozens of cars costing less would serve nearly as well. I recently drove a restored Jaguar XK sports car and was surprised at how comfortable and glamorous the little bullet still is. With their slinky lines and wood-and-leather interiors, Jaguars always have been sexy. But for decades, Jag sedans have been notorious for having tight interiors especially in the rear-seat area. The artfully sculpted new Vanden Plas, which I've tested in prototype form, is lots more utilitarian than previous Jag four-door models.

    Their wheelbase the distance between front and rear wheels has been extended 4. It has been increased from the standard, less-posh Jag XJ6 sedan's inch-wheelbase to Also, the new Vanden Plas and XJ12 models are 4. The added lengths increase rear leg room by 4. And longer rear doors provide improved access to the bench rear seat. Rear passengers may electrically adjust the position of the front passenger seat, further enhancing legroom and comfort via control switches on the inboard side of the front passenger seatback.

    Jaguar Cars president Michael Dale says the automaker "intends to continue its value-for-money pricing strategy" with the extended-wheelbase sedans.

    Adding icing to the cake, the curvature of the new Vanden Plas and XJ12 roof has been modified to provide a half-inch more headroom for both front- and rear-seat pasengers, while retaining the lovely proportions of the XJ6 sedan. The easily loaded trunk has a flat floor, but cargo room hasn't been increased for the longer models and isn't impressive.

    The Jaguar sedans were given more-classic styling, with items such as shapely front fenders that curve down into four round headlights to provide the front end with a distinctive "traditional Jaguar" look. All Jag sedans have the same styling, but the extra wheelbase and length of the Vanden Plas and XJ12 give the two new models a sleeker, richer-looking appearance. Surprisingly, despite the added roominess, acceleration and fuel economy of the Vanden Plas is the same as that of the model because the new model weighs only 25 pounds more.
