2010 Jaguar XK vs. Its Competition

2010 Jaguar XK
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The easy comparisons to the Jaguar XK and XKR hail from Germany.

The Mercedes-Benz SL convertible hardtops can be spiced up to AMG performance, but still feel boulevard-smooth.

They're heavy, and COMAND's entertainment controller mocks first-timers who try to dive into its complex chain of menus.

The BMW 6-Series is even heavier and less happy about it; BMW's sending it to the spa, we hear, and the next 6-Series should emerge late this year, lighter and simpler than the current version.

If you're alternative enough to choose an XK, you might consider a Chevrolet Corvette.

It's never been built better, handling is world-class, and the ZR1 pushes its luck at the 200-mph limit.

At opposite poles of the sports car world to the XK is the Porsche 911.

It's relentlessly efficient, ruthlessly grippy, iconic-but far cooler to the touch than the Jag.
