Jaguar Announces X-TYPE Estate Prices

The New Jaguar X-TYPE Estate

Jaguar X-TYPE

Jaguar today announces prices for the new X-TYPE Estate. Costing from £21,165 on-the-road, Jaguar's new model – which is already attracting considerable interest thanks to its sophisticated styling – adds extremely competitive pricing to its list of credentials.

As versatile as it is desirable, the new X-TYPE Estate gives drivers the option of a premium estate with no compromise on the style or driving dynamics expected of a Jaguar. This striking new addition to the X-TYPE range will carry a premium over the saloon of between £1,050 and £1,150 depending on model.

"The new X-TYPE estate represents superb value throughout the range and in a model-for-model comparison with rivals," commented Jaguar's UK Managing Director, Phil Popham. "We were determined to match these strengths with both pricing and specification and we have demonstrably achieved that goal."

The new model – Jaguar’s first ever production estate car - continues the British marque’s expansion into important market segments where previously it has not been represented. The Estate followed hard on the heels of the first ever Jaguar diesel-engined cars, which are now being delivered to customers.

The X-TYPE Estate has been designed to meet the needs of a new generation of estate car buyers. Style is now a key motivation when choosing an estate car, with more than a third of European purchasers citing it as their number one consideration. This is not surprising when you consider that the market share for estates easily outweighs that for coupes and convertibles combined. Dynamics are also very important, with owners refusing to compromise on the driving experience they want from their car.
