TCC’s Bottom Line

With TDI range and captivating connectivity, the 2014 Audi A8 adds very long-distance touring to its considerable portfolio of talents. No matter whether it's a coupe, convertible, or Gran Coupe, the 2014 BMW 6-Series covers soft and elegant as well as it does sharp and athletic. Had enough with the stoicism and tech overload of German flagships? The 2014 Jaguar XJ is a completely different kind of luxury car, with swinging style, a light, lean driving character, and a wide range of engines--including a new high-performance 550-hp XJR
