A chrome mesh grille mounts on the reshaped prow of Jaguar's luxurious compact-class cars, which conform as a slinky four-door sports sedan or five-door touring wagon. The 2006 models consist of three sedans -- X-Type 3.0, X-Type Sport and X-Type VDP -- and one wagon, X-Type 3.0 Sportwagon. All carry a computerized AWD device which applies power to all of the wheels all of the time.

The engine for all is a dual-cam V6 which displaces 3.0 liters. This plant makes 227 hp through a five-speed automatic with Jaguar's J-pattern gate for automatic as well as clutch-less manual shifts.

A spacious cockpit installs twin front bucket seats and a rear bench for two or three, plus luxury touches and electronic controls for comfort, navigation and safety. VDP maximizes appointments in plush leather and burl walnut with standard Reverse Park Control (RPC) and a 320-watt Alpine premium audio system.

Sensuously styled sedans, coupes and convertibles badged by Britain's classy Jaguar coachmaker leap into 2006 with powerful engines and sophisticated safety systems plus new features added for comfort and convenience. Models include the X-Type all-wheel-drive (AWD) sedan and sport wagon of compact dimensions, the elegant XJ series of full-size and stretched flagship sedans, sporty XK mid-size coupes and convertibles, and curvaceous S-Type mid-size sports sedans. Newest Jaguar is also the rarest -- XJ Super V8 Portfolio, a plush yet powerful luxury sedan on a stretched wheelbase and available strictly in limited numbers.
