Jaguar X-Type Overview

The Jaguar X-Type is classed as a compact executive car which was produced by the British car manufacturing company Jaguar Cars from 2001 – 2009. This Jaguar was available in both estate and saloon versions and was the smallest car of the Jaguar range. This is the Jaguar alternative to the BMW 3-series or Audi A4 and never picked up the same as these very popular cars of this class. These cars have a traditional Jaguar design, are very comfortable, handle really well and are well refined vehicles. Does this sound the experience you have with your X-Type?

Jaguar X-Type History

The Jaguar X-Type was first produced in 2001 and was the first compact executive car to be produced by Jaguar since the Mark 1 in 1955. The X-Type can also be known as the X400. Initial expectations were high but the X-Type never met these, despite being the best selling Jaguar model during most of its life time. This car had many Ford Mondeo parts, 20% in total, which received some criticism from Jaguar enthusiasts.

In 2004 and 2005 the X-Type had a slight makeover to the grille design and a makeover version was released in 2008. The re-designed version had new bumpers, lights and a range of different engines. The estate version was released in 2004. The X-Type was discontinued in 2009.
