2015 Jaguar XK vs. Its Competition

2015 Jaguar XKR
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The all-new Jaguar F-Type is much more of a sports car than the XK, although the XK's combination of comfort, style, and speed tough to beat.

The Maserati GranTurismo is essentially the Italian version of the XK, with Ferrari V-8 power and engine notes, as well as custom-tailored interior and a svelte, European exterior.

The Mercedes-Benz SL Class is far more focused on the grand touring side of things, with no real emphasis on edgy performance at all; on the luxury scale, however, the SL approaches a 10.

BMW's 6-Series offers a different experience in a similar vein, with higher curb weights and lower power outputs (excepting the potent M6), as well as a look and feel all its own--though perhaps somewhat less head-turning than the XK.

The Porsche 911, like the Corvette, is a sports car first, and everything else second, but it does manage to pack in an impressive amount of space.
