Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf MORE TRACK INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightline/2009/05/il-track-tested-2009-bmw-550i-vs-2010-jaguar-xf.html?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2.* Last May, the newly introduced Jaguar XF surprised us. It went head to head with the best midsize luxury sedans from Germany and came out on top. It was fast, comfortable and surprisingly competent through turns, but of course, that was the top-of-the-line supercharged model. For 2010, the Jaguar XF gets a pair of all-new 5.0-liter V8s: one normally aspirated in the XF Premium, the other supercharged in the new XFR. We'll test an XFR soon, but today Inside Line is the first to take the new non-supercharged 5.0-liter-powered 2010 Jaguar XF Premium to the test track. Rated at 385 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque it's not quite as powerful as the former 4.2-liter supercharged V8, but it's close. To see just how close, we brought back a 2009 BMW 550i to see how the new Jag stacks up when it's not getting help from a Supercharger. Given that the BMW is giving up 25 hp and 20 lb-ft of torque, we expected a close contest - and got one.

Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport vs. 2009 BMW 550i Sport vs. 2010 Jaguar XF Premium The 2009 BMW 550i is widely regarded as the benchmark among sporting luxury sedans with its imposing modern design, 360-horsepower 4.8-liter V8 and legendary sporting dynamics. For a car that's been around for five years, its reputation remains consistently impressive. All-new in '09, the Jaguar XF now is available in a midlevel model, and this Jaguar XF Premium includes not only a new 385-hp direct-injection 5.0-liter V8 but also more standard features. Riding a 1st-place finish from the last time we collected four similar cars in 2008, the Brit car should be taken seriously. The new-generation 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport stands a very good chance of improving on its previous 3rd-place finish. Sure, the 382-hp 5.5-liter V8 is a carryover item from the outgoing E-Class, yet Mercedes-Benz has spent a considerable sum to refine this ninth-generation E-Class into a car meant to define this segment of sedans.

Jaguar XF vs BMW 550i vs MB E550 vs Audi A6 | Comparison Test | Edmunds.com
Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=126107?tid=e dmunds.il.home.photopanel..3.* We regret to inform you that the era of the V8-powered midsize luxury sport sedan could be over. Gas prices aren't the problem; instead, it's the impending federal fuel-economy standards that could spell the end of these luxurious street sleepers. So this meeting of the 2008 Audi A6 4.2, 2008 BMW 550i, 2009 Jaguar XF Supercharged and 2008 Mercedes-Benz E550 might represent the end of an era. Under the new rules, shoving big V8s into midsize sedans will become a questionable prospect even for luxury brands. Without massive price increases, only the most expensive flagship models will be able to offer thirsty eight-cylinder engines, leaving the smaller sedans to get by with six cylinders or worse. With that prospect looming, we figured a comparison of the current crop of V8 midsize European luxury sedans was in order. They may not have much of a future, but they offer some of the best combinations of luxury, prestige and completely unnecessary horsepower you can get - for now.

The only certainty of its future is that it is uncertain. Now forget about all that. Turn your attention to the product, which is ultimately the most critical aspect of an automaker's success. Here we have the 2009 Jaguar XF Supercharged, purportedly ready to do battle with the big German sedans like the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, cars that know the luxury sedan game. Only time will tell the story of Jaguar as it enters the next phase of its existence, but we can peek a few pages forward simply by testing the fruits of its labor.

Watch a night drive through LA in the Mini Cooper http://vid.io/xqjf FULL VOLVO XC60 INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=147526?tid= edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* After driving the 2010 Volvo XC60 through our slalom test at 65.1 mph - the second-fastest speed we've recorded in this vehicle segment - two observations were easy to make: 1) This SUV handles - probably better than it needs to; 2) will anyone care? After all, we don't know any Volvo owners who list "lightning-quick reflexes" among their top purchase priorities. But maybe that's just it. Maybe Volvo is expanding its horizons. You certainly won't catch us complaining that any crossover utility vehicle handles too well. As a result, one thing is certain: Volvo realizes that performance is a priority in this segment. And by that measure, yes, people will care. But there are other benefits as well.
