Which used Jaguar X-Type saloon should I buy?
Compared with the sprawling model ranges of the BMW 3 Series or Audi A4, the X-Type’s line-up is quite limited. You could choose from 2.5 or 3.0-litre V6 petrol, or a 2.1-litre V6 diesel that was essentially created as a company car ‘tax-break’ model. Diesel engines, introduced in 2003, were Ford TDCi units in either 128bhp 2.0-litre or 152bhp 2.2-litre forms.
Early cars were V6-engined and four-wheel drive only, too. Front-wheel drive was only introduced on the 2.1-litre V6 version, but was more or less standard on diesel models.
