The 2013 Audi A5 vs. 2012 Jaguar XJ
The 2013 Audi A5 has to be one of the finest looking cars of the year. The engine is another marvelous piece of technology which has Turbocharged 2.0-Liter with a Horse power Of 211 and Torque Of 258 meaning that this baby can accelerate to 60mph in six seconds. One definite positive factor that the dream car is that fuel economy is its best friend i.e. 30 mpg on the high and a 20 mpg in the city, which trust me for a Sudan isn’t that bad. The luxury car contains and Independent Multi-Link Rear Suspension with Coil Springs and Gas Charged Shock Absorbers, which insures that the driver enjoys a smooth ride over small bumps.
The 18 inch alloy wheels along with a well-built steering helps the car to always stay in control and the all-wheel drive system does a great job of inspiring driver confidence in its road holding abilities. The 2013 Audi A5 has Xenon head lights and LED tail lights and 6-Speed Manual Transmission with Overdrive. The interior features are just as exceptional as the exterior ones. The Satellite Radio , Navigation system (Google Earth),Bluetooth phone ,and the audio system (10 speakers) just increases its beauty. With different specs offered the Audi A5 is available for an approximate $41,900.
The 2012 Jaguar XJ is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 that produces 385 hp and 380 pound-feet of torque. As with all XJ models, a six-speed automatic with manual shift control is standard. Jaguar estimates a 0-60-mph sprint of 5.4 seconds and combined fuel economy of 19 mpg. Every 2012 Jaguar XJ comes standard with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, active head restraints and a blind spot warning system. Front seat active seatbelts are optional on the XJ and XJL, and standard on the others. Few cars strike such an excellent balance between ride comfort and sporty handling as the 2012 Jaguar XJ. Even with the big wheels, it glides down the road with a sophisticated suppleness. And yet, with its lightweight aluminum chassis and adaptive suspension, the XJ is also deceptively agile. Choosing the car’s “dynamic” driver setting engages a sharper throttle response, firmed dampers and quicker downshifts, all of which make the XJ feel much livelier.
The steering is sharp, body roll is negligible and there is a nimbleness you notice in the XJ that’s missing from its much heavier rivals. Which engine you choose simply comes down to whether you desire fast, faster or fastest. Standard equipment on the JAG dream car XJ includes 19-inch wheels, an adaptive suspension, a panoramic sunroof, automatic xenon headlamps, auto-dimming mirrors, a power-closing trunk lid, keyless ignition/entry, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, power front seats (16-way driver and 12-way passenger) with memory functions, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and leather upholstery. Also standard is an LCD digital instrument panel, a touch screen electronics interface, Bluetooth (phone connection and audio streaming), a navigation system, voice controls and a 14-speaker sound system with CD player, digital music storage, an iPod interface, HD radio and satellite radio.
