Summary, Prices, Specs
If sensuous looks are important, if being fun to drive is a priority, if arriving at a destination in a stylish luxury car is desirable, then the Jaguar S-Type more than fits the bill. It might not be the “ultimate driving machine” but it delivers plenty of performance and handling, especially with the V8 engine.
The Jaguar S-Type is one of the prettiest cars on the road — along with its stable mates, the XJ8 sedan and the XK8 sports car. And there’s no mistaking the unique leaping Jaguar on the prominent grille.
Jaguar has succeeded. The new S-Type is, indeed, a Jag.
