Jaguar F-Type 2017 convertible
Trim Shown: Coupe Base/Premium
Jaguar's two-seat F-Type coupe and convertible are quick, sporty, and capable, with a distinct exhaust bark emanating from the V8. But don't expect tranquility in the mold of the old XK, which was a more luxury-oriented car. Rear-drive V6 models are available with a stiff-shifting six-speed manual transmission. A smooth eight-speed automatic is standard, and the only gearbox available with the V8. All-wheel drive is optional, and electric power steering has replaced the hydraulic setup. The F-Type also gets Jaguar's JustDrive smartphone app, which builds on the new InControl touch-screen infotainment system. The touch screen is rather slow to respond, and the automatic transmission's gear selector is unintuitive.
