The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class turns the E-Class into a dramatic four-door "coupe," with better lines but worse visibility and softer handling. The 2008 Jaguar XJ has a rich interior, good fuel economy, and a light touch, but its dowdy exterior is a major letdown.
