Jaguar F-Type convertible review: Four to the floor? • 2 November 2018

Jaguar freshens up the F-Type and we find it no less appealing than before. It still looks great, still drives well, still draws admiring glances. The 2.0 four-cylinder engine does the business, though if we had a spare £3500 we’d still go for the V6 for the sake of its lovely sound.

The Jaguar F-Type has been tinkered with for 2019, but are the minor updates enough to keep the ageing sports car competitive?

CAR magazine • 17 November 2017

The four-cylinder Jaguar F-type Convertible isn’t faultless, but it’s damn fanciable. They’ve done a cracking job of maintaining the drama and spectacle that go with a big cat sports car, and the powertrain and chassis balance have been tuned just so for this newly downsized engine. While the performance is well judged, it’s a shame the hoped-for benefits of four-cylinder ownership (lower purchase price, more parsimonious fuel economy) are only marginally felt: this remains an expensive car at £59,980 for the 2.0 300ps R-Dynamic Convertible, and we averaged just 24mpg in our week with the car. For just £4500 more you could be in a sonically magical V6 F-type - and for £15k less you’ll bag an identically powered Porsche 718 Boxster. If only Jaguar could make the sums add up to push the expensive-to-build, aluminium F-type into the £40-something-grand arena… That would be a very compelling choice indeed.

2018 Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport Review • 20 October 2017

The 2018 Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport sits right in the middle of the price range for the F-Type. When the four-cylinder version comes out, it’s supposed to carry a pre-destination sticker price of $59,900. The V6 models start at $68,000 (pre-fee) and the 400 Sport will cost you $89,500, plus $995 for destination and handling. The supercharged V8s top out at $121,900, for comparison. The 400 Sport is definitely a driving enthusiast’s car. It sits right in the sweet spot that experienced sports car lovers know very well. It’s not the most powerful engine you can buy, but it’s got enough power and it’s got the brake and suspension upgrades. It’s got enough luxury touches to be comfortable, but it’s not a boulevard cruiser. Finally, it’s a lot less money than the super hot rod. For what it’s worth, if I was choosing an F-Type to drive every day, I’d get a convertible AWD 400 Sport, and I’d never look back. One final caveat: if you want a 400 Sport, you need to start your planning. Although Jag didn’t mention any production limits, the model is supposed to be made for only one year. When the 2019s come out, there will be something else to take its place.

A few small flaws aside, adding a four-cylinder Ingenium engine into the F-type mix is a success. Jag’s entry-level sports car is lighter, more nimble, plenty rapid enough to get your kicks and work the chassis, and of course it’s more fuel efficient too. It evens summons a pretty rousing soundtrack, though the V6 and V8s remain more compelling. Perhaps the four-cylinder F-type would make a more compelling case for itself if the V6 was dropped, and only the more powerful 380PS V6 S offered. But we’ll park that dilemma with the product planners. Without that context, an F-type that’s two cylinders short of a V6 isn’t the madness it might have seemed seven or so years ago.
