The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jaguar F-Type revives the E-Type's sportscar formula without bowing down to its design ethos--and lives up to the promise of sports car fun in a luxurious environment. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK is the most conservative choice amongst its competitors, but the mini-SL makes for a charming, compelling choice.
