As versatile as it is desirable, this striking new addition to the X-Type range gives drivers the option of a premium estate with no compromise on the style or driving dynamics expected of a Jaguar. The new model - Jaguar's first ever production estate car - continues the British marque's expansion into important market segments where previously it has not been represented. It followed hard on the heels of the first ever Jaguar diesel-engined cars, which are now being delivered to customers.

Petrol and diesel engines, manual or automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive are all available within the new X-Type Estate range, with three specification levels and a portfolio of comfort, convenience and performance options giving customers further opportunities to personalise their car. Based on the X-Type saloon, but with unique new body styling and structure from the B-pillars back - including rear doors and roof - the new X-Type Estate offers an unrivalled combination of luxury, refinement and versatility. Its maximum usable load volume with rear seats folded flat is greater than that of the BMW 3-Series Touring and the Mercedes C-Class Estate, and an astonishing 20 per cent bigger than the Audi A4 Avant - an impressive achievement.

The driver environment, too, will be familiar to those who have experienced the X-Type saloon - although, in common with all X-Types, a number of improvements and additional specification choices have been introduced for the 2004 model year. Drivers who prefer a more sporty look, for example, can now specify carbon fibre facia trim and Alcantara seat trim. This allows even greater differentiation between luxury and sports models in the X-Type range. There are three versions of the X-Type Estate: Classic, SE and Sport. The Classic provides a 'younger' exterior look than the luxury-focused SE, which features a more traditional, chrome-enhanced appearance. Sport models are distinguished by a body-coloured grille and an absence of chrome, and have larger wheels and lower-profile tyres.

A host of intelligent interior features will give owners of the X-Type Estate flexibility to use their vehicle as best suits them. The rear seat can be configured to provide seating for one, two or three passengers, depending on how much luggage space is required. The load area is fully carpeted and trimmed. A generously sized, easily accessed storage area is located under the one-piece floor. Featuring a power output socket, it allows, for instance, a laptop computer to be recharged while discreetly concealed below the floor. Depending on specification, additional stowage boxes for small items are installed behind removable doors in either or both rear sides, while luggage in the main load area is concealable by a retractable soft cover. Easy loading is aided by a split tailgate, with the option of opening either the entire tailgate or just the rear window. Externally, fixed roof rails are fitted as standard and a range of additional carrying systems are available, from ski clamps to roof boxes.

When it goes on sale in spring 2004, the X-Type Estate will add a further dimension to a model range that has been instrumental in driving Jaguar's sales growth in recent years. Since its introduction in May 2001, more than 140,000 X-Types have been sold in almost 70 markets worldwide. With this new Estate - and the recently announced new diesel engine - the X-Type not only now offers the widest ever choice in a single Jaguar model range, but also opens up exciting new market opportunities to the Jaguar marque.
