Jag X-Type revisited

2007-06-14 08:39
Jaguar has unleashed details of its revised X-Type, which sees the 3 Series/A4/C-Class competitor's line-up being consolidated. These midlife changes are ostensibly also to reduce production costs on the British manufacturer's volume seller.

The simplified line-up leaves four trim levels and the sees the abandoning of the Classic and Sport derivatives.

The petrol and turbodiesel engines offered will remain unchanged, though a 3.0-litre petrol V6 will be offered in an estate version with all-wheel drive.

On the outside, the X-Type gets a fresh look with a flashy new grille and two new colours.

The standard feature list has also been extended to include DSC, cruise control, folding 70/30 rear seats for both estate and sedan versions, rain sensing windscreen wipers and automatic headlamps among others.

Local details on this facelift are not yet available.
