Consider the 2010 XK a two-seater, like its high-rolling competitors. There's just not enough room to promise anything to anyone behind those slim, comfortable front buckets.

Coupes have more headroom and legroom than the previous XK, and the long seat travel will give most front passengers the foot space they need. Still, the rear seats are nothing more than upholstered package shelves, even narrower in convertibles.

The trunk is a slim 10 cubic feet in coupes (really, hatchbacks) and shrinks to less than 8 cubic feet in convertibles with the top down. Blame the XK's high cargo floor and low-slung glass and decklid, but you'll have to leave some luggage at home.

Instead of griping, spend some time admiring the details and construction in the cabin: the glossy, deeply grained wood, the stitching in the leather, the plush carpeting. You could spend twice as much on some Italian sports cars and get an interior with poorly fitted, pedestrian trim.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
