Edmunds' Expert Review

A solid all-around luxury sedan, the 2006 Jaguar S-Type is exactly what you would expect from a Jaguar car in terms of style, form and function.

vehicle overview

The S-Type sedan debuted for the 2000 model year and doubled Jaguar's worldwide sales within a year. It competes in the hotly contested midsize luxury sedan category against formidable competitors like the 5 Series and E-Class. Although it shares its basic platform with the Lincoln LS, the S-Type is nonetheless a true Jaguar, as it features its own powertrains, suspension tuning, steering and interior and exterior design.

The only evidence of a relationship with Lincoln is a smattering of shared interior parts, but for the most part, the S-Type looks and feels the way you would expect a Jaguar car to look and feel. All Jaguar S-Type models come standard with stability control, along with four-wheel antilock disc brakes with a panic assist feature and seats that offer anti-whiplash technology. Additional protection is provided by standard side curtain airbags that protect both front and rear occupants.

Short-statured adults are able to sit farther away from the steering wheel thanks to power-adjustable pedals that also feature a memory function to store the preferences of more than one driver. Situated in the center of the dashboard is an optional LCD screen that controls stereo, climate, navigation and telephone functions via touchscreen interface and voice recognition technology. The Jaguar S-Type competes on solid footing with models from major luxury car competitors. It is a beautifully styled sedan, easily recognizable as a Jaguar car from a distance, and serves as a fresh departure from typical styling motifs in this class. Although BMW and Mercedes have the upper hand when it comes to cutting-edge technology, the 2006 Jaguar S-Type remains a desirable alternative for those looking for something a little different in this category.

2006 Jaguar S-Type configurations

The Jaguar S-Type sedan is available in two trims: 3.0 V6 and 4.2 V8 (a high-performance R version is also available). Standard equipment includes leather seats, Bronze Madrona wood trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, a 140-watt sound system with a CD player, a power sunroof and alloy wheels. An Aluminum Sport package adds upgraded wheels, sport seats, aluminum trim and a sport suspension. Stepping up to the 4.2 V8 model adds more power adjustments for the front seats; a memory function for the seats, mirrors, pedals and steering column; a programmable garage door opener; rain-sensing wipers; and a 320-watt Alpine audio system with CD changer. The V8 sedan can also be had with the VDP Edition package, which offers premium leather upholstery with contrasting piping on the seats, premium carpeted floor mats, heated seats, burled walnut trim, front parking sensors, HID headlamps, chrome mirrors and an electric rear sunshade.

2006 Highlights

For 2006, the Jaguar S-Type gets a bit more power for its available V8 engine along with a new braking system. There's also a new chrome-mesh grille insert, optional satellite radio and Bluetooth connectivity, and new 17-inch wheels for the 3.0 S-Type.

Performance & mpg

The S-Type's standard 3.0-liter V6 makes 235 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels. Models equipped with the 4.2-liter V8 boast 300 hp and come standard with the same six-speed automatic.


Standard equipment includes side-impact airbags for front occupants and full-length side curtain airbags, all connected to an advanced adaptive restraint technology system. Four-wheel antilock disc brakes with panic assist are standard, along with stability and traction control. In NHTSA tests, the Jaguar S-Type earned four out of five stars for front-occupant protection in side impacts. Rear-seat protection merited a full five stars. Frontal-impact tests have not been conducted.


Both S-Types display surprisingly nimble driving dynamics along with a comfortable ride quality and smooth power delivery. The V8 is the way to go if you like to go everywhere fast, but most people will find the performance of the V6 perfectly acceptable. The six-speed automatic not only delivers smooth shifts, it gives the 2006 Jaguar S-Type respectable fuel mileage as well.


With a cabin slathered in real wood and sumptuous leather, the Jaguar S-Type is among the most opulently trimmed sedans in its class. Some of the switchgear and controls are hard to use, however, and seem more suited for a Ford than a Jaguar. S-Types equipped with the navigation system have a touchscreen that controls most stereo, climate, DVD navigation and telephone features, requiring drivers to cycle through tedious menus. Jaguar has done away with a traditional handbrake, replacing it with an electronic parking brake operated using a switch on the console. For the first time ever on a Jaguar car, there's a high-tech aluminum fascia option, in place of traditional wood.

Better late than never!
I have always loved the S-Type. My lease ended on my Mercedes C 300 and since I don't drive to my office any longer I decided to buy something that I would really enjoy. I located a 2006 S Type with 47K on the odometer. I did my research and had the car checked out and I have been thrilled with my purchase. It's a nice size; great ride;comfortable and always turns heads. AC needed a boost but other than that its been great. I have it serviced at a Jaguar mechanic when I need oil changes and scheduled maintenance. If you find a good one they are great!
The perfect car for a professional person.
George D. Barry,02/04/2016
We bought this car after a 3 year return lease off the show room floor thinking it was a new car since the conditions was so good. My wife drove this car exclusively for 6 years. Exterior is excellent, interior is excellent, mechanicals are excellent. Serviced by Exclusive British European in Campbell, CA. Everything works. Depreciation of car thru a business has run out is reason for sale. Time to purchase another car.
2006 S type VDP
Joseph - Hbg.,Pa,05/29/2018
Purchased in Oct. 2005 - then it had a couple of issues 'others' were reporting - see below for more about this. This vehicle is a pleasure to drive. Comfortable; controls well laid out. Though minor - having the entertainment controls on the left makes sense since most of us hold the left hand on the wheel. The Radio volume is a bit low; the subwoofer - though I do NOT like booming sounds in my music - seems to not work much at all. The phone volume....even on its highest volume setting - it is difficult to hear the caller. May 2018 - still own this vehicle. No problems. 55,200 miles on odometer. Odd - a couple of problems many experienced: 1 - hot air from driver left side vent; 2 - rear sun screen - would not raise....these two issues began to function properly all by themselves. And - did not know about this feature: do not need to use the brakes whilst driving down hill - it maintains an speed app. 10 MPH. in 'D'. Wonder when the battery needs replacement? Still starts the vehicle strongly. The wiper, also original, clean the window cleanly and silently.
Radio sucks
Mike B,10/03/2015
I tell people , I got a 60,000 car with a 6 cent radio. Is there a booster available?

Should I lease or buy a 2006 Jaguar S-Type?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
