Why the 2004 Jaguar S-Type?

Powertrain performance

The quality and integration of the V8 motor and the autobox is the best I've experienced. Smooth, supple,powerful, quiet at low revs,snarling beast at high revs !! Power always available.

Ride smoothness

I tend to drive my car fairly lightly for most of the time and the car delivers smooth creamy comfort and a feeling of total security. The ride is relatively firm on 17" wheels but never rough.

Fuel economy

In my opinion the fuel economy is nothing other than extraordinary. 35mpg on a motorway run at 75mph average, 27mpg 'round the doors'. Very easy to drive with economy in mind due to fuel computer and live data.

Brand reputation & image

It is a pleasure turning up in a Jaguar! Mine is a Bordeaux metallic and really catches people's eye. It's a nice feeling having something so attractive.

Exterior styling

The S-type Jaguar - what can one say about the styling? It's so unlike anything produce by the boring Germans. In my opinion the facelifted S-type is just beautiful.
