PROS

Luxurious feel, cosseting ride, excellent diesel engine, storming R version

CONS

Dated image, cramped rear seats, interior lacks sophisticated feel, shallow boot

Verdict

It may not have a German badge on the bonnet, but the S-Type has plenty of strong qualities that make it a realistic alternative to models like the Mercedes E-Class. The rather dated image isn't one of them unfortunately and while it draws upon classic Jag styling cues to help set it apart, the S-Type is unlikely to appeal to younger drivers. There is a thunderous R version, powered by a supercharged V8 engine, but the Jaguar's real strength is long distance comfort.

It's superbly refined and the ride quality is excellent, while it also handles sharply. The styling received a reworking in 2004 and the excellent V6 diesel engine was introduced.
