THE NEW JAGUAR X-TYPE ESTATE

Agile driving dynamics and a sporting yet comfortable ride and handling balance – attributes already proven in the X-TYPE saloon – ensure this new addition to the Jaguar range is as rewarding to drive as it is versatile.

And with more than a third of estate car buyers citing style as the number one consideration in making a purchase decision, the new X-TYPE Estate is perfectly positioned to capture sales from customers who have not previously enjoyed the option of a Jaguar estate.

Mirroring the X-TYPE saloon, the availability of permanent all-wheel drive allied to a choice of powerful V6 petrol engines is complemented by the new 2.0 litre diesel engine announced in June. In all cases the new Estate builds on the craftsmanship, style and technological leadership of the X-TYPE saloon with exclusive detailing and numerous intelligent features including integral roof rails and a rear screen that opens independently of the tailgate.

Further details of the new X-TYPE Estate, which will be on sale in spring 2004, will be released coincident with its public debut in early September.

Editors' notes.

Estates currently account for more than a quarter of sales in the X-TYPE market segment across Europe. Jaguar market research reveals that compared to owners of saloon cars, estate car drivers are much more likely to participate in sports such as skiing, cycling and windsurfing, than they are to spectate. They are also on average significantly younger than their saloon-driving counterparts and in the majority of cases do not make their buying decision based on child-related needs.

you're prolly mad, you're also right. I wouldalmost bet that the taillights are parts bin pieces from the s/v 40

at least that's what a jaunt to thegarage confirmed.
