The days of the floating luxury liner on four wheels have long since gone, yet there are still a number of consumers that prefer a softer ride to one that feels like it's attached to rails. In the European premium luxury market, most cars favor the sport
sedan formula, but not the
2008 Jaguar S-Type. Not that the stylishly distinctive Jaguar can't hold its own in the handling arena, it just produces a more sedate ride. Driving devotees who require more will want to check out our review of the performance-oriented S-Type R. Where its competitors boast of performance first, the S-Type touts a luxurious interior, comfortable ride and more traditional instrumentation, free of an overabundance of technological gadgetry. This is the last production year for the S-Type. Its replacement, an all-new, sportier model dubbed the XF, debuts next March.
"An ageless design that turns heads everywhere I go. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone who thirsts to be ahead of the boring norm. My 2001 3.0 s-type has been very reliable, the handling and accleration has been a lot of fun, something I did not expect from a luxury sedan. The S-Type is an undiscovered treasure in the used car market."
