TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jaguar XK is both sublime and sporty, as well as gorgeous, making it one of the most desirable cars in its segment. Earthy exhaust tones and serene handling carve out a distinctive niche for the fabulous Maserati GranTurismo. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL Class feels content as a grand tourer, but it's sportier than you might expect.
