There is now yet another reason to buy a Jaguar – the new X-TYPE Estate. As versatile as it is desirable, this striking new addition to the X-TYPE range gives drivers the option of a premium estate with no compromise on the style or driving dynamics expected of a Jaguar.
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. It 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. Dynamic qualities are also very important, with owners refusing to compromise on the driving experience they want from their car.
Research has revealed that those buying an estate car today are on average significantly younger than their saloon car counterparts. They are also more likely to participate in active sports than they are to spectate. In short, they demand a car that complements their lifestyle – and the new X-TYPE Estate is just that vehicle.
Petrol and diesel engines, manual or automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive are all available within the new X-TYPE Estate range, with three specification levels and a portfolio of comfort, convenience and performance options giving customers further opportunities to personalise their car.
