F-TYPE Latest Update
Jaguar recently launched a more affordable version of the F-Type powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged engine. With this, the Jaguar F-Type range now starts from Rs 90.93 lakh and goes up to Rs 2.80 crore (ex-showroom India). The 2.0-litre engine puts out 300PS and 400Nm, whereas the range-topping 5.0-litre supercharged V8 produces 575PS and 700Nm. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. While the 2.0-litre comes in a rear-wheel-drive configuration, the bigger motor is offered with an all-wheel drive system. The lithe Jaguar goes up against a multitude of sports cars. For example, the more affordable F-Type 2.0-litre I4 variant rivals the likes of the Mercedes SLC AMG 43 as well as the Porsche 718 series, while the flagship F-Type competes with the Mercedes-AMG GT and the Nissan GT-R, among others.

Jaguar F-TYPE Review
Generally, we’re quite neutral about car designs but when it comes to the F-Type, that’s simply impossible. The Jaguar F-Type is easily one of the most beautiful looking cars on sale today, combining sporty proportions with simple, yet, drop-dead gorgeous styling highlights. The F-Type is proof that there is sense in simplicity. There aren’t any cuts, creases or aggressive contours that make it scream, “I am sporty!” In fact, the look here is as clean as it can get, with the only aggression coming in the form of a subtle power dome on the bonnet and the rear haunches which perfectly mimic the stance of a crouched cat! You can even see the flared rear fenders in the rearview mirrors while driving, so you get to enjoy that sight from the inside too.
For the new model year, the F-Type also gets new bumpers, LED headlamps with new DRLs and mildly revised tail lights. To identify this as the 4-cylinder F-Type, you can either look for the ‘P300’ badge on the rear or spot the single exhaust muffler tip. In the F-Type V8, you get quad tail pipes, while the V6 has two round exhausts.
Does this change how people look at the F-Type? Not even slightly. Sure, it won’t make people in the distance turn around because they won’t hear it coming, but once it gets close, prepare for jaws dropping in amazement, thumbs ups from cars that pass by and as we witnessed unfortunately often, bikers pulling out their phones for photos and videos. Even though this test car wears relatively modest 19-inch wheels, the F-Type looks effortlessly striking. That said, not everyone in India knows the F-Type, so don’t be surprised if people assume it’s a Ferrari, especially if it’s draped in this shade of red.
First impressions of the cabin are positive. While the design won’t get your heart racing like the exterior does, it is quite nice to look at. It simply doesn’t feel as special as the exterior. You might be sitting a lot lower here, but for a car that costs more than twice as much as an XE, it doesn’t feel all that different from Jaguar’s entry-level sedan.
There’s a good deal of average-grade plastic in the cabin, including the inner door handles which is quite a turn off. Even the steering-mounted controls use plastics of an only acceptable grade. Plain and simple, there is a lack of finesse in the cabin and it doesn’t feel rich for the kind of money you’re paying. It’s one aspect where Jaguar’s range, in general, is yet to match or beat the Germans. And then you find that Jaguar has also adopted a philosophy of leaving a lot to add ons. This car is specced in the range-topping R-Dynamic variant and gets features like 6-way power adjustable seats, a motorised steering-adjuster, rear parking sensors and cruise control with a speed limiter. But then you find that memory seats/steering, heated and cooled seats, front parking sensors, passive keyless entry and two-zone climate control are all add ons. Even the rear camera is an optional extra in this top-end variant! While it’s hardly a deal breaker for someone with over Rs 1 crore to spend on a sportscar, it does seem greedy.
There is, however, some drama to it all. The central AC vent rise out from the dashboard where it sits flush when switched off. Our test car came with the optional red seat belts, adding a sporty touch and even the instrument cluster gets a red hue when Dynamic mode is engaged. This does add some ‘cool’ to the cabin but it’s still short of wow.
As for space, there’s enough for someone up to 6.5ft in height, albeit with the seat set to its lowest. Or you could get the convertible. The boot itself is quite large and big enough to fit in a few duffel bags. However, this is where the spare tyre has been placed. So, to actually use it, you will have to keep the tyre in your garage or pack lightly.
Now, we get to the core of this review. This is the smallest engine in the F-Type and the on-paper figures, while decent, aren’t nearly as impressive. The 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine is from Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium engine series. The motor itself is around 52kg lighter than the V6 and produces 300PS and 400Nm of torque. Modern as the engine is, the rest of the powertrain is pretty traditional - front engine with rear wheel drive, with an 8-speed automatic transmission connecting the two.
Does this F-Type clear its throat when you hit the starter button? Yes, it certainly is an audible engine even while idling. Is it dramatic? No. While the V6 and V8 can have your neighbours complaining during the society meetings, the 4-cylinder is safe that way. But that has no bearing on its performance as this engine is quick. The peak torque is delivered from as low as 1500rpm, so you don’t have to push the motor to enjoy what it has to offer. You can have some fun even at low to medium speeds as it’ll dart through traffic much like a hot hatch would. 0-100kmph took a tested 6.56 seconds, which isn’t hair raisingly quick. In fact, it’s in the same territory as a luxury sedan like the Mercedes-Benz E350d. But what is enjoyable is how it keeps picking up speed after that. If you aren’t careful, you will be breaking speed limits while assuming you’re just cruising. More importantly, it has a healthy mid-range performance. Even in 8th gear, there’s heaps of torque available for highway-speed overtakes and to do that faster, you can always use the paddle shifters to drop down a few gears.
The good bit here is that the engine is happy to just cruise as well, delivering a tested 12.28kmpl on the highway. It feels relaxed over long distances too, easily clocking 100kmph at under 2000rpm in top gear. It’s also a powertrain you can use for daily drives as it’s not a handful to operate at low speeds. The engine is more than happy to deliver power sedately and smoothly glide ahead. However, at low speeds, the transmission has a tendency to hold onto lower gears for longer than needed, before upshifting. If you slow down after the upshift, it’ll change gears again, making the city drive a touch jerkier than it needs to be. This isn’t a problem when you’re driving fast as the transmission has been tuned to be responsive enough under hard throttle. As for efficiency, we managed a tested 7.68kmpl in the city which is respectable.
But how does it sound on the move? Well, even with the active exhaust engaged, the motor is never obnoxiously loud. There’s no loud scream when you floor it, nor are there fireworks when you let off the accelerator. It’s a constant raspy engine note that’s very appropriate for a sportscar and you even get some crackling and popping, but it’s not the British muscle car sound the F-Type is known for. In many ways, it’s more fitting for the classy looking F-Type, unlike the V6 or V8 which are louder than the gods of thunder.
The safety pack of the Jaguar F-Type includes ABS with EBD, traction control, dual front and dual side airbags, all-round parking sensors and a rear camera. It also gets a pedestrian contact sensing system, which raises the bonnet for pedestrian protection in the event of an accident.
