The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
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. Despite rather conservative styling, the 2009 Saab 9-3 is one of the boldest performers in its class.
