The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Jaguar X-Type hasn't won many fans in the United States, but its exceptional handling and usable cargo room probably leave Jaguar execs wondering why. More sport, more luxury, and more features for the money make the new 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class a more attractive possibility.
