What's the used Jaguar X-Type estate like?

Estate cars derived from compact executive cars aren't always the most practical, but the Jag is certainly one of the better ones. The boot is big and well-shaped, and there's plenty of room for passengers, too.

The cabin feels quite classy, everything feels well made, and all versions get leather. However, some buyers still might expect more from a Jaguar.

Best of all, the estate drives every bit as well as the saloon. The ride is comfortable, even at motorway speeds, and the tidy handling means there's plenty of fun to be had. The Sport model comes with a sports-tuned suspension, and this sharpens everything up even more without sacrificing much in the way of comfort. It's definitely worth having.

An X-type makes a decent cruiser, too. All of the engines are smooth and quiet, and road noise is well suppressed, although there is a bit too much wind noise at motorway speeds.
