The five-door version of the X-Type was Jaguar's first ever estate car and thanks to excellent refinement and a good-size boot, it's usefully practical. It may not have the wide range of engines alternatives like the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class offer, but does have strong diesels including the excellent 2.2-litre unit. The ride quality is superb and it's well built too, but the rather traditional Jaguar looks mean it's not always a popular choice with younger drivers.

In 2008 it was revised with bolder front and rear bumpers, but while it's not a bad car, the X-Type Estate, like the saloon, fails to reach the high benchmark set by the German premium makes.
