Used 2003 Jaguar X-Type Sedan Review

With all-wheel drive, space for four adults, a roomy trunk and surprisingly good performance, the pleasantly affordable X-Type is the most sensible Jaguar yet; but don't let the "starts under $30,000" tag line fool you into thinking you can get a Jag for "cheap."




what's new

Jaguar introduced its youth-oriented X-Type last year, so 2003 holds little changes for the baby Jag. There's a slight reduction in the price of the base model, and electrochromic mirrors are standard on all trim levels. Cars equipped with the 3.0-liter mill now get 17-inch wheels and a CD player as standard equipment.
