Autotrader Find: 2005 Jaguar X-Type Sportwagon


Jaguar currently makes a station wagon version of its midsize XF sedan, called the XF Sportbrake — and it’s not selling very well. This isn’t a surprise, as Jaguar’s last wagon also didn’t sell very well. It was called the X-Type Sportwagon, and there are just a handful for sale on Autotrader — and this is the nicest one.

This is a 2005 X-Type Sportwagon, and it touts just 50,000 miles from new. It’s finished in gold with a beige interior, and it seems to be in fantastic shape for a used vehicle that’s 14 years old, with few obvious blemishes — though the ad’s three pictures leave me wondering about the rest of the car. But from what I can see, it looks nice.

Under the hood, this X-Type Sportwagon uses the more powerful engine offered in this car: a 3.0-liter V6 that made 227 horses. Unfortunately, I don’t believe that Jaguar ever offered the X-Type’s manual transmission in the station wagon version here in the U.S., and, indeed, this car is an automatic — but if you’re looking for a Jag wagon, this one is pretty nice.

If you’re interested, this X-Type Sportwagon is offered by a private seller in Raleigh, North Carolina, and it’s listed for $6,500 — a bargain, in my view, considering its rarity and its apparent condition. Find a Jaguar X-Type for sale
