Introduced in spring 2004 - The X-TYPE Estate is Jaguar’s first ever production estate car and continues the British marque’s expansion.
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 estate cars significantly outweighs that for coupes and convertibles combined. Driving dynamics 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 (four 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.
