UK:Jaguar S-Type's final fling

Jaguar S-Type

S-Type's final fling

With revised styling and prices being slashed, Jaguar's S-Type saloon is about to be given a fitting send-off

Fresh S-Type gets R’s mesh grille, plus larger alloys

Auto Express broke the news of its replacement, the XF, but there's still more than a year before the all-new model goes on sale. In the meantime, the S-Type range has been facelifted as top brass bid to keep it up to speed with the competition.

Major changes come at the front end. In an effort to shake off the Jag's dowdy image, all variants feature the sporty R model's bumper and mesh grille. Larger alloy wheels have also been added to the line-up, with base variants now getting 17-inch rims.

Bizarrely, the only alteration to the colour range is the removal of the fam*ous Jaguar Racing Green, which has been replaced by Emerald Fire.

Inside, the S-Type's interior has been modernised, while standard equipment levels are improved. All models come with extra kit, including multifunction leather seats on SE-spec cars.

As for price reductions, the biggest saving comes on the top-of-the-range S-Type R. It costs £45,000, which is a drop of £5,040. Order books are open now, and the simplified line-up comprises Spirit, XS, SE and R specifications, as the Classic variant has been deleted. Entry-level models are fitted as standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, and also feature seats and a steering wheel trimmed in leather.

The S-Type's replacement, the forthcoming XF, is set to be revealed in concept form at a major motor show next year. It's due to appear on dealer forecourts here in early 2008.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
