Default New Jaguar BEATS the BMW 5-Series in Latest Review?



Quote:
When I saw the cover of AutoCar my eyes almost popped out of my head when the headline stated that 'The 5-Series has been on top for 20 years. Not any more!'

We have yet to drive the new Jag and we hear it's quite good, but better than a 5-Series?

We find that VERY hard to believe and wonder if AutoCar's editors have been taking a page out of what the American buff books (Motor Trend, C&D, Road & Track, etc.) have been doing since forever...giving the crown to the hometown car, even if it isn't better because of ad commitments.

Think about it...the 5 series is about 5 years old now, the Jag just came out. The Jag better be on top or they are really doing something wrong. Just wait for the new 5 series to come out next year...

Jag wins=sells more magazines. New BMW comes out and beats Jag=sells more magazines.

Ever notice that almost every car made is car of the year or top 10 something the first year out?

New Jag is so ugly, though. The lights are like Chrysler Sebring lights turned upside down.

Jag = no MT = no fun for those who want = a 6MT 525, 528, 530, 535, 550 instead
