The stance of the XJ is actually, IMHO, quite good. The prob is that the detailing and side surfacing are clunky. A Jag (even a Jag sedan) needs to be sensuous and voluptuous. The XJ is... not.

I liked the Bertone concept but still don't think it would've pointed to a long-term design direction for the brand.

Maybe Jag should take more of a Porsche approach to constructing its model lineup....
