Video review – Jaguar S Type 2.7 Diesel SE

Shooting the review for the S Type

Back home in sunny Ireland and we’re all in lockdown.  So I thought I’d take this opportunity to review a Jaguar S Type that is parked on the driveway.  This model is an X206 variant from 2007 in SE trim and is powered by the Ford/Peugeot 2.7 diesel engine (spoiler alert – this is a diesel engine that has nice low down torque but needs better suspension, e.g. in Sport trim to provide me with the handling I prefer).

Overall I was impressed with this luxury car and it achieved a reasonable score given that our test car is 13 years old.  Have a look at the videos below to see what I thought of it.  Below the videos you’ll find the specs table too.
