At present, the X-type wagon won't be coming to the U.S., which is a shame because it is so much more desirable and better looking than the sedan that on which it is based. American Jaguar sources reckon that the car would struggle to sell more than 1200 units a year. In Europe, the wagon is available with 2.5- and 3.0-liter V-6 engines as well as a 2.0-liter direct injection turbodiesel. It also has more space than the BMW 3-series, Mercedes C-class, and Audi A4 wagons: we think that it might sell better than Jaguar dealers reckon, particularly because of its standard all-wheel-drive.
