2019 Jaguar F-Type: When less is more
Poised and ready to tear through the concrete jungle, Jaguar's flagship sports car, the F-Type, is paring things back to deliver an effortlessly stylish and exhilarating drive.
Switching down to a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine with their 2019, Jaguar is proving once and for all that more isn't always better.
A smoother, livelier feel
A short test drive alone is enough to discover that what the smaller engine lacks in drama, it more than makes up for in finesse.
The four-cylinder engine still pulls an impressive 221 kW of power and a torque of 400 Nm, enough to add some thrill out on the open road while making this by far the most practical option for your everyday journeys. Unlike the V8 or V6 F-Type, you never have to be cautious of the throttle. Instead, you can drive the four-cylinder Jaguar F-Type far harder, far more of the time.
This conservative engine makes the 2019 model as approachable and as trustworthy as the Jaguar F-Type gets.
A sports car for any day
Sports cars are hardly known for their spaciousness or storage – but the 2019 Jaguar F-Type has just enough of both suit your day-to-day lifestyle.
As a true two-seater, there's ample room for yourself and one passenger up front, and enough boot space to fit your briefcase on a week day or a full-sized golf bag on a Sunday.
Bask in the open air with the soft-top convertible model and raise or lower the hood in 12 seconds when driving up to speeds of 50 km/h. Thanks to the Jaguar F-Type's low seats, buffeting is minimal as you cruise along the highway.
The Jaguary F-Type offers a seamless cruising experience with the immutable style and edge of a British sports car.
The dashboard has aged well four years after its launch, offering a visually appealing interface updated with touch controls and connectivity. Beyond pairing with your phone to blast your road trip soundtrack, the Jaguar F-Type can also interface with the optional Remote Premium app. Monitor your car from your smartphone with information and statistics about fuel levels, journey details and security. You can even lock and unlock doors from the app, as well as start the engine to have the single-zone climate controls pumping cool air well before you climb in.
Add to all this, the great range of automatic safety options including lane keep assist, driver condition monitoring, parking assistance and rear traffic radar systems, and you've got a seamless cruising experience with the immutable style and edge of a British sports car.
