Can Jag Beat BMW? Jaguar XF vs BMW 550i @ the Track
MORE TRACK INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
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.
Euro-Clash: Mercedes E550 Sport vs. BMW 550i Sport vs. Jaguar XF Premium
2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport vs. 2009 BMW 550i Sport vs. 2010 Jaguar XF
Premium @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Building an ideal executive-style luxury sedan is not an easy task for a
carmaker. If the car turns out too soft and isolated, you lose enthusiasts
who aren't quite ready to retire in a Lexus. Too complex or high-strung and
you risk alienating your technology-challenged, soft-in-the-middle buyers
who expect a measure of mindless comfort. Get the balance just right, and
your five-passenger $60,000 midsize sedan will both impress with remarkable
dynamics and indulge with palpable comfort.
We've gathered three such vehicles for this comparison: the 2009 BMW 550i,
2010 Jaguar XF Premium and 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Sport.
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 v Germany Dust-up: XF v BMW 550i v MB E550 v Audi A6
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 —
Fast Jag: 2010 Jaguar XFR Full Test by Inside Line
FOR JAGUAR XFR FULL TEST @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Let's cut right to the chase. The 2010 Jaguar XFR is one of the best sport
sedans in the world today.
If you're surprised, consider that the Jaguar XF sedan upon which the XFR
is based is one hell of a car in its own right. And lest you forget, these
are the same guys who created iconic cars like the C-Type, D-Type and
E-Type. Hey, carmakers around the world are still trying to capture the
magic of the original Jaguar XJ sedan.
Sure, the company has turned out some stinkers in the intervening years,
but the point is that there's a pattern of excellence. It's been obscured
now and again, but the XFR reminds us that the heart of Jaguar still beats
Spicy Volvo? New 2010 Volvo XC60 Tested
FULL VOLVO XC60 INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
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.
