The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Jaguar XJ balances extravagant looks with dazzling big-car performance. The 2016 Mercedes CLS-Class looks great—inside and out. But a new E-Class and more efficient powertrains may outrun the potent "four-door coupe" sooner rather than later.
