A victim of misjudging

Vehicle

2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 4dr AWD Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

My X-Type has treated me very well; power and handling are always there when I need it. On the road, I'm confidant of the ability to pass someone even if they try to accelerate to close the gap. Sitting in this car, you really feel at one with the machine as the seat wraps around your body reassuringly, connecting you with the road as the roar of the engine actually sounds like the primal growl of a wild, angry jaguar. The steering wheel allows you to feel your way without becoming disconnected from the road as you do with many luxury cars. We have to remember, to judge this car in the same class as other high-end cars would be unfair. This is an entry level car delivering above par results.

Favorite Features

The short wheel base allows for in- town maneuverability with ease. The disability of traction control is a nice feature. The boot has plenty of space, especially with the option of dropping the rear seats.

Suggested Improvements

The AWD is reassuring in weather, however it slows down the acceleration from the line considerably. With MT, you cannot pop the clutch as all that traction blogs the engine down initially. This car really needed another 100 HP, with that it would be an Impreza killer!
