A wagon? From Jaguar? Who even knew? In the LA Times, Dan Neil says he loves the Jaguar X-Type SportWagon for it's body, not for it's money: "Try as I might, I can't help liking this car. Buying one is another matter. A fully equipped X-Type Sportwagon with navigation and xenon headlamps will cost more than $40,000, which is a rough part of town. I know a bargain when I see one, and this isn't it."
But what's most entertaining is his out-loud ruminations on what should actually constitute a "sport wagon":
Under the category of "sport wagons," you will find vehicles such as the Toyota RAV4, Lexus RX 330, Buick Rendezvous, Ford Escape and Hyundai Santa Fe, which is odd, given these vehicles' dearth of sport and essential wagon-ness. If these gawky moot-utes are sport wagons, what do you call the BMW 325xi wagon, the Audi A4 and A6 Avant or the coming-soon Saab 9-3 SportCombi? This last one sounds like the surf-and-turf at Hooters. [gratuitous Hooters reference: 10 points. -ed.]Why not "not 'wagons like you remember from your childhood and swore you'd never be caught dead in' wagons, totally cool wagons"?
And, please, these are not "touring wagons" unless they appear on the bill with Weezer.
