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 2009 Lincoln MKS’s smart performance, subdued good looks, and roomy interior put the brand back in full-size, luxury-sedan territory.
