What used Jaguar X-Type estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Jaguar X-Type estate?

The X-type is quite a bit cheaper to buy than the equivalent BMW, Mercedes or Audi. This isn't really surprising, because it was cheaper when the cars were new, and the Jaguar never held its value as well.

Depending on which one you go for, it'll also prove cheaper at the pumps. The average fuel consumption of 48.7mpg on our favourite 2.0-litre diesel is a touch leaner than the equivalent Mercedes or BMW of the same age. The other engines in the X-type range are among the best in the class for fuel consumption, too.

In terms of insurance, it's level-pegging between the Jag and its competitors, but where you will pay for the Jag, is in servicing costs. Surprisingly, the Jag is pricier to maintain than its more expensive German rivals, and by quite a bit.
