The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Jaguar S-Type may look conservative and dated, and its interior is cramped, but it still delivers some of the best performance in its class, especially in one of the V-8 trims. The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.
