Glad I Made The Purchase — Very responsive, great handling and the braking is unbelievable! Fun to drive and comfortable, even on long drives. Well appointed interior. This car has held up very well and certainly doesn't look or perform like a six year old car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles very well and has plenty of power

Cons: Wish I had a dealership more conveniently located.

Pure British Sports Saloon — Drove this as a private chauffeur. Great car which combines sportyness and luxury in a perfect manner. Although it's an extremely fast car for its size, you never get the feeling of driving a sports car.

Pros: The comfort and 300 bhp

Cons: none

Great car. Really enjoyed it. Powerful, great handling, smooth ride, and lots of luxury features. Its distinctive styling often causes people to stop me and make favorable comments. Jaguar has a long and distinguished history, and this is a wonderful part of that.

  • Power

  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats

  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"Jags 4.2 V8 is more powerful than Audi 6 3.2 . Jag has 295 horsepower, Audi 3.2 L is 255. Cargurus listed 3.2 L not 4.2 L"
Handling Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"Jaguar handles beautifully. Ive enjoyed it on long vacation trips as well as day trips and round about. More horsepower gives you more options when passing, avoiding hazards, and other. Although I only read reviews of the Audi, I assume wonderful handling is theres a reason that the original price of a Jaguar is significantly more than the Audi V6."
Looks/Style Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"Its distinctive. Flowing lines beat designs all but dictated by computer generated statistics concerning aerodynamics. Jaguar S Type doesnt look like lots of other cars. Audi does."
Front Seats Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"Jag seats are very comfortable. Jag has more head and leg room. Just read reviews of Audi."
Back Seats Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"Rear shoulder room of Jaguar is about an inch larger."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD better.
"Audi is about 1 1/2 cubic feet larger."
Family Car Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"To me a family would have much more pride in owning a Jaguar than an Audi. Additional power and more luxury features give the Jaguar an edge. The power makes it easier and safer if if youre towing a boat. The Audis trunk room is larger, but theres no problem with the Jag."
Value Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"The Cargurus comparison listed Audi 3.2 L, V6, not the 4.2 L version. Kelley, etc. lists more luxury features for Jag. The 4.2 L is significantly more powerful than the Audis V6."
Would Buy Ranked 2005 Audi A6 4.2 quattro Sedan AWD worse.
"Jaguar has a more powerful engine and its gorgeous styling makes it a distinctive luxury car. People comment on its good looks. The Jag also has more luxury features and its original price was higher than the Audis.. To me, Jaguars reputation and tradition ranks it far above the reality new entry to the luxury car competition."

Totally different vehicles however Jaguar introduced me into luxury vehicles. You can feel the difference in driving a superior vehicle, the way it feels as if was part of you solid and in control , for a large vehicle the ML430 is all of that and more, I would recommend this car to anyone.
