TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray sets a new benchmark for value among well-equipped, comfortable, high-performance sports cars. The 2014 Jaguar XK is both sublime and sporty, as well as gorgeous, making it one of the most desirable cars in its segment. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL Class feels content as a grand tourer, but it's sportier than you might expect.
