Current Model
Jaguar's two-seat F-Type coupe and convertible is a quick, sporty, and capable. For 2022 it is only offered with two V8 engines, with varying power outputs.
Either way, the supercharged V8 has a distinct exhaust bark. Rear- and all-wheel drive versions are offered. A smooth eight-speed automatic is the only available transmission. The F-Type is agile in the corners and steers with precision, making it a delight to drive. The ride is firm, but it's not overly punishing, given the breed. That said, don't expect tranquility in the mold of the old XK, which was a more luxury-oriented car. All models get standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Standard active safety features include FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection.

2014-2021
2014 Redesign Year
Jaguar's F-Type resurrects the brand's sports-car heritage. Three supercharged engines are offered: two V6s ranging from 340 to 380 horsepower and a 495-hp V8.
The eight-speed automatic works well but the shifter is fussy. For the convertible, Jaguar chose a soft-top design in the interest of folding speed, lighter weight, and trunk space. In initial drives we noted that the body is solid and free of shakes, and open top motoring is free of wind buffeting. The exhaust note is quite brash. The ride is very taut and controlled and handling is responsive and capable, with communicative steering. The coupe bodystyle can be had in an R version, which features a 550-hp V8. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine was new in 2018. All 2020 models got standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
