With its distinctive color keyed exterior, leather sports interior, up-rated sports suspension and brakes, the new Sport models are cars for the true driving enthusiast. The S-TYPE Sport is available with the 3.0 litre V6 engine and the 4.2 litre V8 engine. In summary, the distinguishing features of the Sport models are:

"The emphasis of the engineering program for 2002 has been very much on refinement and extending the appeal of the S-TYPE range. The revised 3.0 litre manual transmission, enlarged 4.2 litre V8 and new six-speed automatic deliver effortless, refined Jaguar power, while the supercharged R unequivocally establishes S-TYPE's performance credentials. For the interior, we listened carefully to our customers to create a new cabin environment, which combines craftsmanship with leading-edge technology. Beneath the surface, S-TYPE's renowned ride and handling qualities are further enhanced through numerous refinements, including a new front suspension. S-TYPE now offers more luxury, performance and driving pleasure than ever." Phil Hodgkinson Chief Program Engineer
