X-Type

 

A Sportwagon version of Jaguar's X-Type debuted for 2005, bringing an added level of practicality to Jaguar's smallest vehicle. Buyers can choose between a 192-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a 227-horsepower 3.0-liter V-6, with all-wheel drive standard. For 2006, a five-speed-automatic transmission is included across the line. Standard features include four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and front side and side-curtain airbags. An available Sport Package features Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), a sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch wheels and tires, and a rear spoiler. For 2006, the car adopts a new frontal design across the entire model range highlighted by chrome mesh grille inserts, for a more aggressive and contemporary look. New options include Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth wireless phone capability, and revised alloy wheel designs. Indigo replaces Pacific Blue, and Winter Gold replaces Topaz on the exterior color palette.

Bought it used with 120,000 miles on it for 5 grand. Nothing compared to it's looks, performance, drivability, handling for the money, and my wife likes it.

A very pleasant car to drive, but lacking in terms of power, space and amenities.

Handles nicely. Has an entry level feel to it. No more luxury than what you have paid for. But has served me for almost 8 years - family of four and all.

Would buy another X-type with standard shifting. Also must be equipped with a supercharger & adjustable pedals(brake/clutch/gas).

This car is one of the first X-Types delivered in Canada in the Fall of 2001. It has a 5 speed manual transmission which makes it a joy to drive. Repair record is average, no significant issues.
