The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type piles on even more sportscar credibility with a ravishing Coupe R edition. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK is the most conservative choice amongst its competitors, but the mini-SL makes for a charming, compelling choice.
