2004 Jaguar X-TYPE Overview

The Jaguar X-Type sedan receives a few minor updates for this third year of production. New exterior details include redesigned wheels, front bumper and fog lamps. The price of the upper-level 3.0 trim is reduced dramatically, by $3,000. Opting for the Sport Package upgrade will now also bring a premium audio system and 18-inch wheels.

Engine options are once again the same, providing the most notable distinction between the two X-Type trim levels. The base 2.5 sedan is powered by a 2.5-liter V6 that delivers 191 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The larger 3.0-liter V6 generates 227 horsepower and 209 pound-feet of torque. Both engines may be paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission, but the manual is standard with the smaller engine and a no-cost option with the 3.0-liter. Both models are AWD, weigh between 3,400 and 3,500 pounds, and can reach 60 mph off the line between 7 and 8 seconds. Mixed-driving fuel economy is in the mid-to-high 20s (mpg) with both engines.

Both trims come equipped with the standard fare for entry-level luxury car features, including leather seats, wood trim, keyless entry, automatic climate control, full power accessories, heated mirrors and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. Options are plentiful and include a moonroof, power passenger seat, Jaguar's Dynamic Stability Control, a premium audio system and navigation. However, most are assembled into costly option packages like Sport, Weather and Premium.

While most reviewers acknowledge that the X-Type is perhaps the best Jaguar value, with strong selling points like AWD and an under-$30,000 price tag, many have panned the entry-level sedan for its strong resemblance to a Ford product. Buyers often cite the X-Type's XJ-inspired exterior styling as their primary reason for purchase, but other favorite features include the sedan's sporty feel, interior comfort and the extra security of items like all-wheel drive and traction control. Unfortunately, it is difficult to make a strong case for the X-Type with respect to value in its class, since many German and Japanese competitors offer a lower price, better performance and, of course, a better reputation for reliability than Jaguar.
