New Jaguar and Land Rover tested

The XE is Jaguar's second attempt at persuading BMW 3-series and Mercedes-Benz C- class buyers to reconsider switching over.

Will the Tata-owned British marque succeed this time? Read the cover story of next month's Torque to draw your own conclusion.

September's Torque also finds out how the new Land Rover Discovery Sport stacks up against the Lexus NX200t and Volvo XC60. Other comparison tests include pitting the Peugeot 508 1.6 against the Opel Insignia 1.6; and Kia Carens against the Chevrolet Orlando.

Besides car reviews, this issue also looks at how coasting mode, possibly the coolest fuel-saving feature today, works. And how you can increase your retirement fund by at least $500,000 - by not owning a car.

Torque, out at newsstands now.
