I don't care for the design, it's not to my taste... It looks very ford like and I don't like the design of the S-type either... Automagazines seem to praise the design of the S-type but I never liked it... The interior design is hideous (exactly like ford).... If any of you guys like the design of the S-type, then go sit in it and the interior will leave a stale aftertaste..... nothing at all like the interior of an XJ8...
Jaguar still leaves much to be desired..
Although the XKR/XJR are nice...

It's definitely a sweet design. The front reminds me of the XJ and the rear is off the new S-Type. Jags are very sculpted and well designed, but they have poor quality, and, ever sine Ford bought them out, cheap plasticky interiors. At least that's what I tohught when I drove a 2000 4.0 S-Type. Nice torqy engine, but the car still lacks a lot of the gizmos that the others have (still doesn't have Xenons).
Sure, with standard All-wheel drive and those sexy rims, they're bound to give the sports sedan market some serious competition, but the 3-series and IS300 are still on top of their game.
I don't consider the Volvo S60 competition. It's like a smaller S80, with a kickass turbo 5, but when you load it up, it's about the same price as a fully loaded 330i. Why would someone pay $40K+ for a small Volvo??
Because of the popularity of the XJRs, there will be also R versions of the S-Type and X-Type as well, according to the president of Jaguar of Canada. (If I remember correctly from an article that I read a month back)
