TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi S8 is the super sedan by which others are measured. The 2017 BMW 7-Series has a deceivingly conservative wrapper for its radically reengineered underpinnings and tech-centric cabin. The 2017 Jaguar XJ carries forward the luxury banner from the British automaker in a way that we appreciate—swaddled in leather, massaged all the way.
