The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Audi A4 has grown into a more useful luxury sedan, though it goes overboard with optional, programmable handling. The 2008 Jaguar X-Type hasn't won many fans in the United States, but its exceptional handling and usable cargo room probably leave Jaguar execs wondering why.
