TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Audi S8 is a speed machine that's the ultimate sleeper. Spot one and stare—it'll likely be gone just as quickly. The 2018 BMW 7-Series is a plush ride with plenty of powertrain options and customizable features that places it among the full-size greats. The 2018 Jaguar XJ swaddles its occupants in leather, delivers them in style, and offers sporty road manners for a large car due to its lightweight construction.
