The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Acura RL tops safety rankings and bristles with technology, but its detached driving feel and over-the-top front-end styling remove it from the best-in-class competition. The 2009 Jaguar XF is an easy car to love. It performs as well as anything in the class--and has unexpected glamorous touches that will win over converts. The 2009 Volvo S80 shines in the realm of safety, and for those who want performance but not the edgy feel of a sport sedan, the S80 might be a good pick.
