Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Although the S-Type hasn’t been tested by Euro NCAP, it features plenty of the essential safety equipment including, six airbags, anti-whiplash seats, dynamic stability control and emergency brake assist. Security is similarly reassuring with deadlocks, alarm and an immobiliser.

The S-Type is only available as a four-door saloon, there's no estate version so practicality is fairly limited. The boot itself offers 400 litres of space, which is less than most alternatives, plus the luggage area itself is pretty shallow and not capable of carrying large or boxy items. On the plus side the rear seats do fold and split 60/40 to increase carrying capacity, while in the front there's decent stowage with a central twin cupholder and a cubby between the front seats, however the door pockets are small for an executive saloon.
