The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 BMW 5-Series packs in the advanced technology and fuel-efficient powertrains, yet it manages to keep true to its sport-sedan mission. Refined, nimble, and a scorcher in R trim, the Jaguar XF's only remaining hurdle to greatness is back-seat space. Better handling and interiors put the Mercedes-Benz E-Class back in benchmark status; a passel of new engines brings fuel economy to new heights.
