History of Jaguar X-Type
Jaguar first released the X-Type in 2001, as a compact executive car to add to its existing line up. Marketed by Jaguar Cars, the X-Type was made through one single generation until production ceased in 2009. This model was manufactured at the Halewood Assembly Facility near Liverpool, and was the smallest of Jaguar''s car collection. It was available as both saloon and estate models, being recognised as the first estate manufactured in series production by the British carmaker. The Jaguar X-Type has become a popular second hand buy, with many finding it an affordable alternative to some of the more pricey models in this competitive class. Auto Express say that the Jaguar never sold in the volumes that the marque hoped for, with the model earning a questionable reliability record which is putting potential owners off. However, they say that more recent models can offer a good balance of ride and handling as well as a well stocked cabin.
Jaguar X-Type (2001 - 2009)
The Jaguar X-Type was first launched towards the end of 2001, as the first compact executive car launch for the British marque since the Jaguar Mark 1 was released back in 1955. This model was styled under the supervision of Geoff Lawson, with principal designer Wayne Burgess.
The Jaguar X-Type was based on a modified version of the Ford CD132 platform, which was also used for the third generation Ford Mondeo. Initially only offered as an all-wheel drive model, the X-Type was mated to a 2.5 L and 3.0 L AJ-V6 petrol engine. After the release, in 2002, another engine in the form of a 2.1 L V6 front wheel drive model was added, before a 2.0 L turbodiesel was released in 2003. All engines were available with the choice of five-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmissions. In 2001 the four-door saloon model was released, with the launch of the five-door estate variant in 2004.
The grille used for the X-Type was slightly changed in both 2004 and 2006. Then, in 2007, a facelift model was unveiled at the Canary Wharf Motorexpo. This model went on sale in the UK from the following year, and featured revised front and rear fascias as well as updated door mirrors and the inclusion of integrated turn indicator repeaters. There was also now the choice of a new 2.2 L diesel engine with a particulate filter as well as a new six-speed automatic transmission complete with Jaguar Sequential Shift.
According to What Car? the Jaguar X-Type has encountered a number of common problems, including indicator issues and a problem with the cruise control on models built between 2005 and 2010. Models built at the beginning of 2004 could also experience issues with the brakes.
In 2002 the X-Type was tested during Euro NCAP safety testing, where it was awarded a four star safety rating. Production of both the saloon and estate versions of the X-Type ended in 2009
