Used 2007 Jaguar X-Type
Edmunds' Expert Review
When Ford bought Jaguar, the X-Type was the smaller, entry-level car we hoped it would build -- and feared it would build. Though a pleasant everyday companion with all-wheel drive and all-weather ability, the 2007 Jaguar X-Type is generally outclassed now by newer competitors.
Now in its sixth year, the 2007 Jaguar X-Type has to face down newer designs like the current BMW 3 Series, Infiniti G35 and Lexus IS. And frankly, it had a hard time competing back when it was itself a new design back in 2002.
The styling is pure Jaguar scaled down to the X-Type's size. The hooded oval headlights, rectangular grille and elegantly arched roof all recall the original, timelessly elegant 1969 XJ large sedan. But the squeeze-down robs the design of its drama, and many see some Taurus in the X-Type's appearance. Beyond that, the engineering owes at least as much to parent Ford as to Jaguar. The basic steel structure of the car and many of its drivetrain and suspension elements are shared with the recent Ford Mondeo, and the ordinariness too often is apparent under the lush leather and high-luster wood.
All X-Types come with all-wheel drive and a transverse-mounted, Ford-derived, 227-horsepower 3.0-liter DOHC 24-valve V6. The only transmission is a five-speed automatic controlled by Jaguar's traditional "J-Gate" shifter. The basic suspension design is a set of MacPherson struts up front and a multilink independent system in the rear. Four-wheel disc brakes with ABS are standard, running just inboard of 16-inch alloy wheels on the 3.0 sedan (with 17s and 18s optional) and 17-inchers on the Sportwagon (with 18s optional).
There's enough room inside the X-Type 3.0 sedan for four adults to sit comfortably, and the seats are well shaped, but shoving in five is tight. The rear door openings are a touch small, making ingress and egress difficult. The Sportwagon provides a bit more rear headroom than the sedan and up to 50 cubic feet of storage space when the split rear seat is down.
If you really want a new Jaguar -- complete with "leaper" on the hood -- this is the cheapest way to get into one. And it feels it.
Trim levels & features
The 2007 Jaguar X-Type is an entry-level luxury car available as a sedan or wagon. Some equipment that was optional last year, like a moonroof and a split folding rear seat, are now standard on the 3.0 sedan, while the Sportwagon's standard equipment list expands to include a memory driver seat, premium sound system, rain-sensing windshield wipers and a wood-and-leather-trimmed steering wheel. While a leather-and-wood-trimmed interior is part of every X-Type (and every Jaguar), a new Luxury Package for the 3.0 sedan adds contrast piping to the upholstery, burl walnut veneers, an eight-way power passenger seat, memory for the driver seat, automatic headlamps, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing wipers, 17-inch wheels and more. Otherwise the options list is a short one that includes 18-inch wheels, a DVD-based navigation system, premium audio and satellite radio.
Performance & mpg
The sole engine offered in the Jaguar X-Type is a 227-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6. It's paired with a five-speed automatic transmission that in turn feeds Jaguar's Traction-4 all-wheel-drive system. In a test of a Sportwagon from a few years ago, we measured a 0-60-mph time of 8.2 seconds.
Standard safety features include front seat side airbags and side curtain airbags for both front and rear passengers. There is also a knee bolster airbag for the driver. Jaguar's Dynamic Stability Control system works with an Emergency Brake System and standard antilock brakes to keep the car upright.
In a market segment that includes such brilliant performers as the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Lexus IS and Infiniti G35, the 2007 Jaguar X-Type is an also-ran. Not so much because of its own vices (of which there are really very few) but because of the sublime reactions and composure of the direct competition.
The X-Type's interior is a mix of elegant Jaguar elements -- beautiful wood veneers, supple leather upholstery and a restrained use of chrome trim -- and mundane plastic bits more appropriate to a Ford. Overall it's an attractive and comfortable environment for four to travel, but a bit cramped for the five it's rated to carry.

Should I lease or buy a 2007 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.
