2008 Jaguar X Type Estate
Jaguar X-Type Estate
The Panther X-Type gets a sassy seek 2008, on with a horde of new features interior and out-of-door the fomite and a new machinelike contagion in the acclaimed 2.2 diesel. With substantial revisions including virtually 500 new components, the new contemporaries Panther X-Type retains all the pilot car’s strengths, and adds around new ones of its own.
“The new Panther X-Type stands for handiness, versatility, sumptuousness and selection inside the Panther scope”, explained CJ O’Donnell, Ball-shaped Selling Conductor, Panther Cars. “The packet of revisions – peculiarly the robotic transmittal in the 2.2 diesel – presents our accomplished dealers and the key emergent markets with an splendid chance to ambit new customers and hold existent owners.”

The new Panther X-Type machinelike diesel combines gamey levels of elaboration with optimised execution and saving, and promises more option and flush greater sumptuousness, to entreaty peculiarly to a jr., more family-orientated consultation.

Usable in bar and land variants, the new Panther X-Type goes on sale in the UK in Border 2008, and in over-the-counter European markets from April 2008. In improver to the 2.2 Diesel, the Panther X-Type is usable with 2.0 Diesel, 2.0 V6 gasoline, 2.5 V6 gasoline and 3.0 V6 gasolene engines (contingent mart).
The diesel-automatic alternative
First in the Panther X-Type scope, buyers can opt for diesel superpower and an automatonlike transmittal. The 2.2 liter diesel is opposite with a new six-speed reflex gearbox, which has the added attracter of ‘one-touch ascendancy’ Panther Consecutive Slip, for manual gearchanges.
“The combining of diesel exponent with machinelike transmittance and Panther Serial Slip adds yet another proportion to the Panther X-Type”, commented X-Type Headman Curriculum Mastermind, Kevin Step. “Moreover, all the actions we sustain enforced on the new car better its civilization and drivability”.
The six paraphernalia ratios are elect to pitch graceful cruising patch maintaining sportsmanlike operation – the counterpoise that Panther inquiry shows an Panther X-Type possessor wants. Where the 2.2 liter diesel with manual transmitting can accomplish utmost torsion from second, the new combining can attain maximal torsion altogether six gears, utilising optimal train variety points to check outflank use of the useable torsion. This delivers meaning benefits to functioning ‘spirit’ and the execution of the diesel robotlike is imposingly roughly that of the diesel with the manual contagion. In the new Panther X-Type taphouse, the 2.2D manual rendering has headline figures of 0-60mph in 8.7 seconds (0-100kph in 9.1 seconds), a maximal upper of 134mph (216kph), a combined saving of 47.1mpg (6.0l/100km), and a CO2 evaluation of 159g/km. The various figures for the 2.2D reflex are 9.5 seconds (9.9 seconds), 129mph (208kph), 41 mpg (6.9l/100km) and 184g/km. The relative figures – shown fully in the stipulation tables – are interchangeable for demesne versions.
Thanks to the new infection’s innovative electronic ascendancy, it offers speedy responses to sack commands, and a quality of operational modes. Moving from full automatonlike to ‘manual’ style mechanically selects a ‘Sports’ scene: this delivers more involving, showy sack kinetics – with the added profit of dim-witted, one-touch up- or down-shifts victimization the Panther Successive Slip broadcast.
Too as the changes needful to instal the new transmitting, across-the-board measures were interpreted to optimize chilling, weightiness and dissonance, and oscillation and inclemency (NVH) characteristics. These admit at a strong-arm stratum, a greater mass of and improvements to vocalize insulant materials, patch in the electronic domain the Locomotive Velocity Ascendence (ESC) smoothes downshifts and the torsion convertor is disposed a level of slip-up that both improves its NVH qualities and gives improved drivability and thriftiness.
Technology moving forwards
The new Panther X-Type besides introduces importantly upgraded electronic features, from new digital sound options to improved Bluetooth® connectivity and ‘Coevals 5’ parking aids.
As digital broadcasting becomes progressively far-flung some the mankind, the new Panther X-Type offers Digital Sound Broadcasting (DAB) systems, piece retaining the power to obtain both parallel and digital broadcasts.

It likewise offers prolonged phonebook functions, including last-number redial for apiece of the pentad mated handsets if requisite, and enhanced connexion strategies, including the conclusion mated handset connecting beginning on start up again.
And behind parkland aids now compeer the figurehead ones in beingness ‘Coevals 5’, victimization new engineering that allows the sensors to be littler, neater and torso dyed.

These like models besides admit a Charcoal-gray leather gearknob on manual versions, Softly Blackness switch pommel and environment on gasoline robotlike versions, and leather with Pianissimo Melanize inserts for the new diesel machinelike compounding.
