The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Jaguar XJ returns for its fourth year on the market, with an aluminum chassis, V-8 engines, and a broad range of models priced from about $63,000 to nearly $94,000. Controversially styled, the 2008 BMW 7-Series still performs like a smaller sedan and carries rear passengers with ease.
