Jaguar X-type for 2008: the lowdown

Jaguar has finally given the X-type a facelift, but the 500 changes try their hardest to escape your attention. On paper at least. It's small wonder that we did a double take when we scooped the new X earlier this year; some said we'd just caught the current car on test, but it turns out we were right. Is it enough to improve the baby Jag's sales performance? Jaguar sold just 32,500 last year worldwide - compared with half a million 3-series models flogged by BMW. Or is it too little, too late?

The visual changes are, ahem, subtle to say the least. There's a new mesh grille with Jag's growler badge, revised bumpers front and rear, new sills, and the addition of the brand's chrome signature blade across the bootlid. Oh, and the door mirrors are new, now incorporating turn indicator repeaters and new paint colours are available. Of rather more importance are the mechanical changes.
