TCC’s Bottom Line
Had enough with the stoicism and tech overload of German flagships? The 2014 Jaguar XJ is a completely different kind of luxury car, with swinging style, a light, lean driving character, and a wide range of engines--including a new high-performance 550-hp XJR The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS retains its fashion-forward look, while adding efficiency and, in AMG form, even more impressive performance.
