Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Jaguar adds more standard equipment, including stability control, a moonroof and rear park assist (for the wagon), to its X-Type for 2007. The automaker has also juggled its naming conventions, dropping the Sport package and replacing the VDP and Premium packages with a luxury package on the sedan.

Equipped with all-wheel drive, the X-Type is related to the Ford-built European Mondeo. An automatic transmission is standard on all models. Wheel center caps and the steering wheel display black Growler badging, and Sirius Satellite Radio and Bluetooth wireless technology are available.

An X-Type 3.0 Sportwagon joined the original four-door compact sedan for 2005.

Exterior
Proportion and balance are important in the X-Type's design. Designers substituted a high tail for the traditional low tail of the past. The X-Type's classic styling themes are familiar to Jaguar aficionados and include a traditional forward-leaning grille augmented by some sporty modern touches. Elliptical quad halogen headlights are installed, and fog lights are integrated into the lower front fascia.

Jaguar's Dynamic Stability Control electronic stability system is standard. The X-Type rides on 16-inch alloy wheels, and 17-inch wheels are optional.

The luxury package includes a unique 17-inch wheel design and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Interior
Five people fit in the cockpit-style interior, which features Connolly leather and traditional wood veneer or carbon-fiber trim, depending on the model. Standard equipment includes automatic climate control and steering-wheel controls for the stereo.

The luxury package offers leather-trimmed seats, burl walnut interior trim and 10-way power-adjustable driver and front passenger seats.


Under the Hood
Each X-Type is powered by a 227-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 that teams with a five-speed automatic transmission.

Safety
Standard features include dual-stage front airbags, seat-mounted side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags for front and rear occupants, and antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution.

Driving Impressions
Because it's structurally related to the Ford Mondeo, many have wondered whether the X-Type is an authentic Jaguar. It's an eager-performing, competent-handling sedan that's able to carry on the company's illustrious heritage.

On wet, twisty pavement, the X-Type demonstrates its handling skills at every curve. Responding quickly and surely to steering inputs, the sedan is confident and surefooted at all speeds. Even on moderately imperfect surfaces, the ride is sheer pleasure. Rougher patches can produce some jostling, but the car corrects itself crisply without excessive rebounding.

Acceleration with the 3.0-liter V-6 is vigorous, supremely confident and helped by crisp automatic-transmission operation. Exceptionally quiet, the X-Type exhibits evidence of solid, careful construction. The seats are comfortable and supportive.


X-Type 3.0 Sportwagon
When the Sportwagon went on sale in Europe, it wasn't clear when — or if — that body style would reach American dealerships. Late in 2004, Jaguar was ready to send it across the Atlantic. Though it's similar to the sedan up front, the Sportwagon has different rear doors and a unique roof. For 2007, the Sportwagon gains its own 17-inch wheels and standard rear park assist.

Equipped with the 227-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 and an automatic transmission, the all-wheel-drive Sportwagon has a rear window that can be opened. The folding backseat is split 70/30. Four luggage tie-downs are installed in the rear cargo area, which includes a luggage cover and cargo net. A hidden storage compartment includes a 12-volt power outlet and detachable side doors. Silver roof rails are fitted for use with adjustable carrying systems, and a moonroof is standard. Back to top

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
