Keen pricing has always been central to the X-type's appeal, and now that it's in its later years there are some massive discounts available. It's affordable to buy and lease, too, and both engines average more than 45mpg. All that needs to be weighed against resale values that are poor for the class, however.
Jaguar X-type Saloon quality & reliability
Jaguar has tweaked the X-type's interior more than once, but it still feels dated and rather low-rent. Although everything is solid enough, it doesn't quite have the faultless finish of a BMW 3 Series and some of the switchgear feels rather cheap. On the positive side, the X-type performed well in our last JD Power customer satisfaction survey.
Jaguar X-type Saloon safety & security
All versions have stability control and twin front, side and curtain airbags. However, you don't get active anti-whiplash head restraints and there's no option for a driver's knee airbag or rear side airbags. Deadlocks, a visible VIN and locking wheelnuts are all part of the security package.
