Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The SRT-8 hasn’t been crash tested by Euro NCAP, but it feels solidly built and comes with plenty of safety kit. All models get electronic stability programme (ESP), traction control, ABS and front and rear side airbags. Security-wise, there’s an alarm and remote central locking. Facelifted cars come with seat-mounted airbags that were added to the front (and side-curtain airbags to the rear) for increased driver and passenger safety.

The SRT-8 also comes with tyre pressure sensors and Isofix child seat mounting points while there are uprated brakes to cope with the extra power.

At more than five metres long, parking can be a challenge, so usefully rear parking sensors are standard. It’s always been available as a saloon, although a Touring version was offered from February 2007 until the end of that year. The estate makes more sense if you have loads to carry, but the saloon has a useful boot – albeit smaller than rivals like the BMW M5 and Audi RS6.

It has a 504-litre boot, and should swallow most things associated with a week’s holiday for a family. The rear seats also split and fold for extra versatility. No estate version is offered on the SRT-8, but there is a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 that uses the same engine.
