It has the same six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission with manual-shift capability via paddles behind the steering wheel. It also features all-wheel drive.

The sleek Jaguar XK Convertible is an adept combination of style and substance.

It has a powerful V8 engine, which drives the rear wheels with a six-speed automatic transmission that allows manual operation via steering wheel-mounted paddles. It has a high level of standard equipment and few options, including adaptive cruise control which maintains a set distance between the car and traffic ahead.
