    I was struck by the overall description: it is an XF estate... call it a Sportbrake?

    Saw my first Macan today. Amazingly it is even uglier than either the Cayenne or the Panamera. I didn't think that was possible.

    Who can stand to buy such ugly vehicles?

    Guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think the Macan is a fine looking car and much better looking than a Cayenne or a Panamera

    Not a proper test on snow and ice and I would not rate Matt Saunders too highly as he seems to be the mouthpiece for Jaguar these days and Mike Cross in particular as their official press release magazine Autocar.

    Do you have the Nissan Juke in Canada as that takes the prize for ugly over here. Somebody said that it was the result of an illicate night of lovemaking between a house brick and a Rino or a Hippo.

    Yes we do, and the rogue. At least they don't pretend to be stylish or premium quality.
