The latest S-Type continues to be loved and admired by customers throughout the world, attracted on an emotional level by its spirit of individuality, iconic design and sporting performance.

For the 2008 Model Year, all S-Type versions feature an updated front end, with the addition of the sporting S-Type R bumper and mesh grille to all models. The new-look front is more contemporary, giving every S-Type a more poised and dynamic appearance.

A new series of alloy wheels adds to the sporting appearance of the 2008 Model Year. Entry level versions now come with the multi-spoke 17-inch Antares wheel as standard. The 18-inch Triton alloy wheel is standard on all SE models, while the top-of-the-range S-Type R now comes with the 19-inch Barcelona wheel as standard.

The S-Type's interior is also upgraded, with the introduction of multi-function Sport seats (with non-perforated leather) instead of the previous Classic seat for all SE and Sport models. Entry-level S-Type models come with a leather-trimmed steering wheel as standard, while a new Satin Mahogany veneer is available as an option across the range. Choice is further extended with the option of a new Ivory and Charcoal leather color combination for SE models.

Technical innovation is part of the S-Type's appeal and every new model will now come with Rear Park Assist as standard.

The 2008 Model Year S-Type range will be unveiled at the Bologna Motor Show in December 2006 and will be available for order from dealers immediately.
