Jaguar has today announced the introduction of the S-TYPE 2.5 litre Plus Special Edition. Available from May, the S-TYPE 2.5 litre Plus model features new ‘Plus’ specifications, offering customers added value for money with prices starting at only £25,995.

This model is the run out edition of the 2.5 litre petrol engine in the S-TYPE range, which will be deleted from the range after May production, following the successful introduction and popularity of the S-TYPE diesel.

This new S-TYPE Plus Special Edition is available as a 2.5 litre Plus, 2.5 litre SE Plus and a 2.5 litre Sport Plus. All models offer enhanced customer value of more than £3,000.

The 2.5 Plus features Automatic Transmission, leather seats, 17″ Aurora Wheels, reverse park control and floor mats, while both the 2.5 SE Plus and 2.5 Sport Plus add the Technology Pack (Navigation system, Bluetooth, telephone connectivity and Jaguar Voice), Convenience Pack (Front and rear park assist, rain sensing wipers and electrochromic exterior and interior rear view mirror), Cold Climate Pack (Headlight powerwash, heated front windscreen and heated rear seats) and floor mats.

Standard technology specification on all models includes: cruise control, Climate Control, Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Park Brake (EPB), automatic headlights, manually adjustable headlight levelling, heated rear windscreen with wipers, power assisted steering, trip computer, and Alpine sound equipment.

This exceptional level of technology ensures the S-TYPE offers a superior driving experience in a competitive value for money package. Impressive standard equipment emphasises the S-TYPE’s sporty character and level of performance, whilst unique styling also adds to the feeling of luxury.

Phil Popham, UK Managing Director, Jaguar Cars: “This Special Edition version of the S-TYPE means that customers are offered leading technology and a superior driving environment at an extremely attractive price. The extra specifications not only offer excellent value for money, but also add to the feeling of contemporary sporting luxury that surrounds the car.”

The S-TYPE has scooped a number of awards since its launch including most recently the award for the ‘Best Executive Saloon 2005’ at the Top Gear Magazine awards and the Diesel Car of the Year at the Scottish Car of the Year Awards.

There will be a limited volume of Special Edition cars available, in a variety of popular colour combinations. The advertised price will be from £25,995 OTR.
