The Jaguar X-Type, codenamed X400, was launched in October 2001 as Jaguar's first compact executive car since the Jaguar Mark 2 of 1959. The X-Type was one of the last to be styled under the supervision of Geoff Lawson, with Wayne Burgess as principal designer. The four-door saloon was launched in 2001 and in 2004 the five-door estate joined the range with production of both versions ending in 2009. The estate was officially marketed as the "Sportwagon” in the United States and was the first Jaguar model designed by Ian Callum. Initially, the X-Type was only available with all-wheel-drive and either a 2.5 litre or 3.0 litre V6 petrol engine. In 2002, an entry-level 2.1 litre V6 front-wheel-drive model was added. All three engines were available with either five-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmissions. The X-Type grille was slightly modified for both the 2004 and 2006 model years.
