The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Jaguar XK is the brand's best mainstream car ever, with performance equal to its German competitors and looks to beat them all. The 2008 BMW 6-Series is overwrought and overstocked with technology that distracts even from the M6’s heroic performance.
