The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
On par in performance with its German competitors but far better looking, the 2009 XK is simply the best mainstream Jaguar ever. The 2008 BMW 6-Series is overwrought and overstocked with technology that distracts even from the M6’s heroic performance.
