The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
Bigger, bulkier, bawdier: The 2019 BMW 8-Series bucks all Bavaria’s typical instincts and revels in its life choices. The 2019 Jaguar F-Type blurs the line between sports and touring cars. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is an icon among luxury cars and convertibles. It's due for an update, but a good idea never gets old.
