Jaguar Announces Prices For X-TYPE 2.2 Litre Diesels - From £24,165

Jaguar X-TYPE

Jaguar today announces prices for its new X-TYPE 2.2 Diesel saloon and estate model range, with the X-TYPE 2.2 Diesel costing from £22,995 for the curvaceous sports saloon and £24,165 for the spacious and dynamic estate.

Jaguar's X-TYPE diesel range moves up a gear for the 2006 model year with the introduction of a new 2.2 litre turbocharged engine and six-speed manual transmission. The new engine takes the number of diesel X-TYPE models to four and Jaguar's diesel range to five, with a sixth recently announced in the shape of the new XJ 2.7 Diesel.

The new 155PS engine gives X-TYPE customers the choice of a premium diesel with high performance and refinement in equal measure. With torque peaking on overboost at a solid 400Nm, the 2.2 litre engine delivers an ideal combination of effortless cruising power and rapid acceleration. Taking 50-75mph acceleration in 4th gear as an example, the X-TYPE 2.2 is timed at 6.7 seconds, putting it ahead of the pack in its segment and comparable to cars with much larger petrol engines. With 0-62 mph reached in a brisk 8.9 seconds and a top speed of 137 mph (220 km/h) in the saloon, outstanding power and overtaking ability are guaranteed.

Jaguar recently achieved remarkable success in the latest J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study released in May in the U.S. Improving to second place overall, Jaguar's success was led by its best performing model in the survey - the X-TYPE. Jaguar topped the poll as the highest-ranked European nameplate. In addition, Jaguar's Halewood plant, where the X-TYPE is manufactured, received J.D. Power's Gold Award for European plant performance.
