The Jaguar X-Type was introduced in February 2001 as the ‘baby Jag’. It was loosely based on parent company Ford’s Mondeo platform. It was initially launched with 2.5- and 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines, and then in June 2003 a 2.0-litre diesel engine was added to the range. In August 2005, a 2.2-litre version was launched. In January 2004 an Estate version was launched. The X-type was launched with four-wheel drive, but front-wheel-drive versions were offered from December 2001. The steering is power-assisted, and most models will be equipped with an electronic stability program (ESP). Maintain the X-type well and it should stay reliable and economical.
