I did not see that coming and i really like the XE but don't think it should be that ranked that high in design. Alfa Romeo Giulia should have been it, not this.
I'm surprised that something like the AMG-GT didn't make the cut if the Jaguar XE did. I also think that the Q30 by Infiniti has a really nice design going on.

Infiniti is indeed nice, I find they are one of the only brand right now that has a good mixture of having good design and unique design, too much copy cat going on these days.
I do give them a lot of credit for their new design language. It's really tough to make a new and unique design language that can compete with the really well established Germans. Lincoln has been gradually finding itself. Cadillac is strong but it doesn't quite have the same feel as Infiniti. Infiniti feels more natural while Cadillac is so angular -- the design is more assertive instead of emergent.

Hope that makes sense. :)
Yeah it is design well done during these times when I think it can be challenging and that's something some brands struggle with is finding their identity in design, fortunately they have established that and come a longer way than other brands one being cadillac which I think still has some work to do.
