Isn't that Jag's styling (and that of most recent Jags) too derivative of AM?

Did they have the VW GX3 on display in NY?

The designer, Ian Callum, styled a couple Astons, too. Anyway, there are many many worse cars to be derivative of.

Most modern cars don't strike me but the latest Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Range Rovers (BMW) are very well-done. It's too bad they haven't done more for Ford's bottom line.

oh right.. i guess i assumed that people would assume more than they did.

i should have come right out and said this, but everything jaguar has produced since ford's buyout in 89 has been complete shit, including the line of XK's that were around since the late 90's.

this is a surprising breath of fresh air from jag.

And why are they complete shit?

I quite like the XK and think it was a lot better than the XJS before it. The current XJ is a beautiful car that keeps Jaguars traditional "gentleman's club" atmosphere about it.
