Look far and wide: You'll be hard-pressed to find a more suave grand tourer than the 2010 Jaguar XK and XKR.

Convertible or coupe, the Jaguar XK is an aesthetic home run, a perfect 10 to our styling eye. From stunning curve to flowing line, there's barely a surface out of place on the XK coupe or convertible. From some angles it's pure Jaguar; from the rear quarter, the convertible has some Camaro emotion in its undulating panels.

Designer Ian Callum's tinkered with the front end mildly this year; the XK's straight-bottomed headlamps are the single detail that could be stretched and smoothed. Frankly, we liked the 2007-2010 XK's front end more-the slight makeover adds big air intakes that demand equal time from the oval grille and sloping hood.

The XK's cabin escapes without a smudge; it's beautifully organized and layered with walnut or metallic trim. Knurled chrome rollers control the audio, chromed switches work the power seats-loving nods to tradition tempered with a bright, big LCD touchscreen that lets passengers swipe and tap their way through audio, navigation, and climate controls. The XK's gorgeous gauges are brightly illuminated in white and read cleanly like a collector timepiece; the transplanted JaguarDrive wheel from the Jaguar XF is a natural fit in the console.

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.
