Edmunds' Expert Review

The 2006 Jaguar X-Type is a decent entry-level luxury sedan that's outclassed by its European rivals in the important areas of interior furnishings and driving dynamics. Only worth considering if you've got to have the style of a Jaguar car.

vehicle overview

For the 2002 model-year rollout of the new X-Type, Jaguar set its sights on a younger, more mainstream consumer than it had ever targeted before. The X-Type expanded Jaguar's range of cars in a few noteworthy directions. It was relatively inexpensive (for a Jaguar, anyway), came with standard all-wheel drive, and could even be had with a manual transmission. For 2005, Jaguar added a versatile station wagon version of the X-Type, known as the Sportwagon.

Styling follows the example set by the XJ8, with rounded quad headlights, a Jaguar leaper hood ornament and a discreet chrome grille proclaiming its heritage. The Jaguar X-Type doesn't have the singular glamour of its pricier siblings, though, and from certain angles, the sedan is disappointingly reminiscent of a Ford Taurus.

Inside, each Jaguar X-Type model comes with leather upholstery and real wood trim, but many of the plastics and vinyls used in the cabin are below class standards. The cabin offers a decent amount of room for four adults, though tight rear door openings can make it hard to get in and out. The competition in the entry-level luxury sedan segment has only gotten tougher since the X-Type debuted in 2002. Most of its peers, both import and domestic, surpass it in important areas like engine performance, driving dynamics and cabin accommodations while matching or even beating the Jaguar on price.

Trim levels & features

The 2006 Jaguar X-Type is available as a sedan or a wagon. Base 3.0 models come with standard equipment like 16-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, a power driver seat, real wood trim, automatic climate control, a six-speaker CD stereo and one-touch power windows. The Sportwagon adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a power moonroof and split-folding rear seat. On the options list, you'll find a navigation system and the Sport Package, which offers 17-inch alloys, revised suspension settings, HID headlamps, carbon-fiber and Alcantara interior trim, and more aggressive exterior styling. The VDP Edition includes special wheels, chrome mirror caps, rain-sensing wipers, a seat and mirror memory system, a 320-watt Alpine audio system with a CD changer, walnut trim and heated, 10-way power seats with color-contrast piping.

2006 Highlights

This year there are only minor changes to the X-Type. The smaller 2.5-liter V6 has been dropped from the lineup, leaving the 3.0-liter V6 as the only engine available. Jaguar has also made the five-speed automatic transmission standard equipment and discontinued the manual gearbox option. Remaining changes are purely cosmetic, such as a new chrome-mesh grille and updated wheel designs. Bluetooth wireless connectivity and Sirius Satellite Radio are new options this year.

Performance & mpg

The Jaguar X-Type has a 3.0-liter V6 rated for 227 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque. The only transmission choice is a five-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is standard on all X-Types.

Safety

A full complement of safety features is provided on the X-Type, including seat-mounted side airbags for front occupants, side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers, and four-wheel antilock disc brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. Stability control is optional. In government crash testing, the Jaguar X-Type earned four out of five stars in all frontal- and side-impact categories. In frontal-offset crash testing, it received a "Good" rating (the best possible).

Driving

Alongside other entry-level luxury sedans and wagons, the 2006 Jaguar X-Type comes up short in acceleration and handling. The V6 engine doesn't feel particularly powerful, nor is the five-speed automatic especially quick on the draw. Ride quality is smooth and comfortable on the highway, but it can be harsh over bumps and ruts. Opting for the Sport Package gives the X-Type a fair amount of agility in the turns, but the smallest Jag still feels soft and slow to respond compared to most peers.

Interior

Inside, the Jaguar X-Type comes with an ample array of luxury features, including leather upholstery, real wood trim, automatic climate control and one-touch windows. Unfortunately, many of the interior materials are low in quality for this class. There's adequate room for four adults, although a sloping roof line puts the squeeze on taller passengers while tight rear-door openings make it tricky to exit the Jaguar car gracefully. The sedan's trunk capacity is generous at 16 cubic feet, while the Sportwagon offers up to 50 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded.

Underappreciated gem of a car!
aluni@DC, 03/23/2010
Came down to this and a 2007 Mercedes C Class 280 4 matric. I picked the X- Type for a more stylish exterior styling and more interior space. The Mercedes had slightly better drivability and slightly better interior build quality. But the overall styling of the X-type and the super low miles (10K on the X Type v. 39K on the C280) won me over. Both cars handled well and the engines seemed very comparable. I really like how smoothly the Jaguar drives and how comfortable the seats are. The interior space is excellent on this. I have absolutely no regrets about my decision. The overall quality on this car seems solid.
Hesitant at first
sdettra, 07/12/2013
I had always wanted a Jag but had heard bad things about them. So after 2 months of looking at reviews, researching the model and even pricing out parts for the repairs that were sure to follow I took the leap. Bottom line is I am very glad I did. Great car and with over 90,000 miles I have replaced a front wheel bearing for $28.00. Great ride Great styling and slightly above average performance.
A Great Feeling About Owning a Jag!
Donald Jaeger, 10/28/2006
This is my 1st Jag and I must admit that this is a great driving auto and fun car to drive. I drove many other competetive autos prior to selecting the Jaguar, but this one really drove and handled the best. I've owned many new cars, such as C230 Mercedes, Acura RL, numerous Honda Accords and a few Cadillacs, but this is, by far, the best car yet. I love to drive it and I also love the head turns I get from this vehicle. Keep up the good work Jaguar and you will have a customer for a long time.
Amazing Car!
Weslowery, 05/17/2010
We just bought this car and its amazing. The seats are stiff but they are so comfortable. It doesn't really get good gas mileage but its our luxury cruiser. We have been getting about 20.5 in the city. It rides great and drives even better.

Should I lease or buy a 2006 Jaguar X-Type?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
