JAGUAR X-TYPE (2001 - )



TYPE: 5 door saloon

SIZE: 4672 x 1789 x 1392

RELIABILITY: Jaguars have improved hugely in this area over the last few years and there is no reason to believe that the S-Type won´t continue the trend. But don´t bank on German standards of dependability yet - it remains unproven.

MORE: The Jaguar X-TYPE is an entry-level luxury car / compact executive car produced by the Ford owned British luxury marque Jaguar Cars since 2001. It is built on a modified version of the Ford CD132 platform, a British version of the Ford CDW27 platform, which is the base for the Ford Mondeo, and remains in production at Jaguar´s Halewood facility in England.

COMMENTS: The X-TYPE is the smallest of the current Jaguar saloon (sedan) cars, and was designed to build on the success of the S-Type, although it takes many styling cues from the XJ series. Jaguar states that 10% of the parts are made by Jaguar, 20% are made by Ford, while the rest are made by subcontractors.
