PROS

Classy image, very comfortable and refined, decent boot space, good long distance cruiser

CONS

Traditional looks have narrow appeal, limited rear seat space, some cheap interior materials

Verdict

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.
