What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For It looks good, it's fine to drive and spacious, too

Against The driving position isn't great and there's too much wind noise at motorway speeds

Verdict It drives just as well as the saloon version, but gives more practicality

Go for… 2.0D Sport

Avoid… 3.0 V6

Jaguar X-type Estate
  • 1. The boot is big and well shaped, and there's plenty of room for passengers, too
  • 2. Our advice is to buy a post-2003 model, as reports say they're much more reliable
  • 3. Many early cars suffered from clutch failure and transmission whine
  • 4. Door seals can leak, so keep an eye open for water marks or any dampness inside
  • 5. If the steering rattles, it may cost quite a bit to fix
