I own an 06 X Type 3.0 automatic and have put 14K miles on it so far. Performance - The 3.0 in the X makes 227HP and 206 Ft-Lbs of torque . The car will hit 60 in 7.1 seconds and tops out at about 121 (electronically limited). European models without the electronic watchdog will hit 150. The sensation of acceleration with this car is different - you don't get much seat-of-the-pants feel, but, the speeedometer simply unwinds itself. Handling - the conering ability of this car matches anything I've ever driven. Corners like its on rails. Mine has the 17 inch wheels and the ride is firm and well damped, but, not jarring as in some of its competitors.
Exterior - I love the retro styling of the Jag. The fit and finish are second to none. These cars have the best paint jobs I've ever seen.
Interior - I find the seats to be very comfortable on long trips. I can drive for hours without fatique. The quality of the leather Jag uses is excellent. The wood trim is tastefully done, and, the dash layout is quite attractive. Back seat room is Ok, and , will hold 2 adults with no discomfort. The trunk room is tops for this class with a full 16 cu. feet capacity. Foul Weather capability - With its standard AWD, the X will handle snow and heavy rain with no drama at all. The traction is excellent. Anti-lock brakes and disk brakes all around are standard. Braking capabilities of the car are excellent. Overall, the car is heavy and is extremely well built and rigid. At legal speeds on the interstate, it feels like its loafing, and, is quite capable of cruising at triple digit speeds comfortably. Fuel economy - Driving aroud town, my X gets 20 Mpg. On trips, running at interstate speeds, it stays consistently at 24 MPG, running on 93 octane gas. I drove most of its competitors before buying it. Some are a bit quicker, but, none of them appealed to me as much as the X did. Having driven it for almost a year now, I'm still extremely satisfied with my purchase decision.
