Jaguar X-Type Review

The Jaguar X-Type includes a five-door estate variation that not only offers practical style, but also refinement and an adequately sized boot. Although it doesn’t include the same diversity in engine ranges as the Mercedes C-Class or BMW 3-Series, the X-Type comes with an excellent variety in diesel units. Younger drivers may not prefer the traditional look of this Jaguar model, but it does perform where it counts, offering decent ide quality and a durable build.

Pros

Two diesel engine units are available with the Jaguar X-Type. Both the 2.0-litre at 130bhp and the 2.2-litre at 155 bhp are sourced from Ford. The 2.0-litre unit is known for its refinement and pace. The 2.2-litre at 155bhp has similar fuel economy as the 2.0-litre unit, but is much faster at its 62mph sprint arrival at 9.3 seconds. The 2.2-litre unit also includes an automatic transmission option, plus a six-speed gearbox for a smoother performance. The engine’s responsiveness can also be improved by going into Sport Mode, enabling keener acceleration as you get out of slower corners. 

The petrol range includes a 3.0-litre V6 and a 2.5-litre unit that come with the four-wheel drive as its standard. You can also get the 2.0-litre petrol unit or the 2.1-litre V6 that come with the front-wheel drive.

The X-Type impresses in terms of ride and handling, providing all around comfort via its responsive steering and body control. You won’t have any problem driving through A-roads and motorways. All models—from the3.0-litre or 2.0-litre with four wheel drive to any of the front-wheel drive variations—are able to keep the ride composed through corners and to keep the handle predictable in any ride. Motorways are the best venues for the X-Type’s smoothest rides.

Most of the recent X-Type models are complete in equipment compared to the older models. Some of the major additions to the X-Type include touch-screen satellite navigation on the SE, Sovereign, and Sport Premium and Bluetooth. The entry-level S trims also have art-leather seats and offer automatic transmission with the 2.2-litre diesel.

Drivers and passengers are assured all around security in the X-Type, as it has a four-star rating from the Euro NCAP crash test. The model’s safety equipment includes six intelligent airbags and dynamic stability control. The six airbags respond according to the circumstances of the accident. The Bluetooth feature in the car adds to the safety precautions, letting you use your phone without compromising your driving.

Cons

The X-Type may have enough room up front, but the space is rather limited in the rear seat area. Legroom and headroom are limited so anyone seated out back will experience some discomfort. Thankfully the minimal noise intrusion in the cabin adds some comfort to the overall ride. Boot space is also limited at 455 litres. Although you can fold down the rear seats, they don’t come out too flat as a floor. Thankfully the load floor is free from other obstructions and adds a wider space. With the seats folded, the boot capacity is increased to 1415 litres. This is much bigger than the BMW 3-Series Touring.

The past, present, and future of the Jaguar X-Type

A compact executive car, the Jaguar X-Type was in production between 2001 and 2009. The X-Type was the smallest in Jaguar’s model range and came in estate and saloon variants. It was also the first compact executive car from Jaguar since the Mark 1 was released in 1955. Wayne Burgess is noted to be the principal designer for the X-Type saloon though the vehicle was one of the last to be designed under the guidance of Geoff Lawson. The estate variant was designed by Ian Callum and was known officially as the Sportwagon in the US.

The X-Type received facelifts in 2004, 2006, and 2007, and the modifications were expected to continue until the 2010 model year. However, it was announced in 2009 that the X-Type will cease production. Before the shutdown, special editions of the X-Type were released. These were the Spirit limited edition and the XS limited edition. The Spirit limited edition featured rear valance and new spoilers with a 2.5 V6 engine, while the XS limited edition offered more engine options though the sports theme was continued.

Plans of reviving the Jaguar X-Type are a thing of the past but there are rumors that there is interest in creating a successor that would be able to take on the BMW 3 Series. Should this be true, it is unlikely that such a model will be released in time to be sold before 2014.
