Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Yes, the car looks nice. And people are impressed with the Jaguar name. And yes, the price is right. But that's where the positives end. Jags are known for poor reliability and mine is no exception. I bought a 2 year old certified used car still under factory warranty. Within the first 9 months I had put nearly $1000 into it and still hadn't addressed all of the problems. Before I can fix everything something new crops up (currently I have a loud squeaking noise at high speeds). Someone said it was comfortable for long rides. Well, I am 6', 200 pounds and I find it uncomfortably cramped. I have driven it from NY to the midwest and lets just say I am renting a luxury car the next time I make the trip. One consumer company (I forget which) rated the x-type the 5th worst car of the decade. Believe it. I am going to ditch mine as soon as possible.
