Besides a coupe and a convertible, also a Shooting Brake is taken into account. Just a moment, please. Could it happen that Mr Jones is a reader of our magazine?

Not only he proclaims our suggested niche strategy that aims at avoiding direct competition with the Germans, also an X-type Shooting Brake was introduced as the better option by us - even before the recent X-type Estate was out.

The downside of the issue is that the realisation of a further X-generation is un-
certain as the economic situation ain't all too favourable for the baby Jag. The gap in the market between the cheaper Alfa 156 and the perfecter 3-series doesn't seem large enough to launch a Jag profitably in it.

Especially because there also are other renowned offers covering almost each possible combination of a Jag's attributes. Nonetheless, a compact option that compares to nothing by its look could make impact, we think.
