The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
With the 2017 XE, Jaguar hopes it's built a better 3-Series. In many ways, it has. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class adds to the impressive roster with a convertible version this year and a newly minted AMG C43 version. Bavaria is even better now.
